On the Solemnity of Peter and Paul

Matt Dunn

My dear friend James is dead,
Since Herod’s sword took him away.
And I am next, they’ve said;
In jail for only one more day.Peter's liberation

I lie on rocky ground
While drifting in and out of dreams
One dream which I have found
Is more realistic than it seems:

A visitor appears;
Touches my wrists, for what it’s worth.
And yet, despite my fears,
My chains have fallen to the earth.

He leads me past the guard
I now know this is not the end:
My future may be hard
But yet, I still have sheep to tend.
