Poem-a-Day April 2018 Writer’s Digest Challenge #24. Theme: Roundelay

Dark sun

Christ the Lord

He lived by the Word and died by the sword
His childhood was private, His ministry, public
From a virgin he sprung,
pure as a virgin spring
His life was predestined for greatness–
a greatness and influence even death could not end

From a virgin he sprung,
pure as a virgin spring
A babe, a child, a man–He was all of these
An old man, a woman, a lover–He was none
His life was predestined for greatness–
a greatness and influence even death could not end

A babe, a child, a man–He was all of these
An old man, a woman, a lover–He was none
He was a fisher of men, a protector-gatherer of children,
a respecter of women, a hunter after God’s own heart
His life was predestined for greatness–
a greatness and influence even death could not end

He was a fisher of men, a protector-gatherer of children,
a respecter of women, a hunter after God’s own heart
He lived by the Word and died by the sword
His childhood was private, His ministry, public
His life was predestined for greatness–
a greatness and influence even death could not end
