My Sheep Shall Hear my Voice: Poem
by Peter Menkin

One listens for Christ,
His voice.

They ask
Many things of Him:

Again, with another question
And desire. Forgiveness.

The nature of wanting to know
Christ is in the call, the desire
of Him.
Of themselves, too. One burns.

This poem asks about Christ, wanting him in desire, and ends with the words, "One burns." The statement here is about love, the love that is God and human need to seek one so good, as is Christ. There, I have set it out boldly.

Love is a wonderful subject, and John of the Cross speaks of love in his poetry. For those interested in serious reading on the subject of John of the Cross, and a statement about Christ and God, read "The Impact of God: Soundings from St. John of the Cross," by Iain Matthew. I recommend it.
