Here The Whole World

This is a short poem by CS Lewis. It has a nice overall Lenten vibe, and I like the image here of Lenten lands as we should consider how Lent begin in the late Winter and end in the early Spring, so to we should be renewed by our Lenten experiences.. i hope that we all do so. This is the poem:

Here the whole world (stars, water, air,
And field, and forest, as they were
Reflected in a single mind)
Like cast off clothes was left behind
In ashes, yet with hopes that she,
Re-born from holy poverty,
In lenten lands, hereafter may
Resume them on her Easter Day.
