  1. I love poetry, hymnology. Wrestling Jacob by Charles Wesley is still one of my favorites – “Come, O Thou Traveler unknown,
    Whom still I hold, but cannot see.”


    “Yield to me now, for I am weak,
    Speak to my heart, in blessing speak..”


  2. I wonder if you have read any of Gerard Manely Hopkins poetry. His poem “As Kingfishers catch fire” took the breath out of me the first time I heard it. The way he used words for both their meaning and sound is amazing.


  3. A scholar! A site to enjoy indeed, although there is so much here you could spend part of a lifetime exploring it all. A lot of the poetry you present is wonderful, of course.
