Curses Unmade

March 6, 2008

A thrice-blessed world

and then the fall;

serpent, ground, murder,

curses on all.


Shadow descends

over earth and bone;

feverish night,

guttural groan.


Oh, grim unbelief!

Adam’s doom!

Is redemption possible?

How, and by whom?


Through cross and tomb

the God-man passed;

curses unmade,

blessings at last.
