Rachel Annand Taylor: "The Question"

Good Friday

The Question

I saw the Son of God go by
   Crowned with the crown of Thorn.
"Was It not finished, Lord?" I said,
   "And all the anguish borne?"

He turned on me His awful eyes:
   "Hast thou not understood?
Lo! Every soul is Calvary,
   And every sin a Rood."

Rachel Annand Taylor (b. 1876)

The Oxford Book of English Mystical Verse (1917), ed. D. H. S. Nicholson and A. H. E. Lee, p. 547.
