Benediction
By Mark Turbyfill
 
LET no blasphemer till the sacred earth
Or scatter seed upon it,
Lest fruit should fail
And weed-scars sting its fineness.
 
Send him here who loves its beauty        5
And its brownness.
 
He will plow the earth
As a dancer dances—
Ecstatically.
 
Let no blasphemer till the sacred earth        10
Or scatter seed upon it.
