  • Into The Instant's Bliss
  • Christian Wiman (bio)

Into the instant's bliss never came one soulWhose soul was not possessed by Christ,Even in the eons Christ was not.

And still: some who cry the name of ChristLive more remote from loveThan some who cry to a void they cannot name.

After Dante [End Page 253]
