Surcease Of Sorrow
THE Man was crucified, and at the foot of the cross kneeled three of the sons of men.
One said: "Poor soul, may it be given me to prevent such crucifixion." But on the face on the cross I saw the tears run down.
Another said: "My friend, may it be given me to ease thy crucifixion." But on the face I saw a frown.
The third said: "Brother, let it be given me to share the crucifixion." Then on the face I saw the peace of God shine out beneath the thorny crown.
