Charles A. Waugaman – ‘Good’ As In Friday

I read this poem by Charles year-round, often aloud.   There is so much wisdom in his poem, and it also was a great comfort after my mother’s passing in 2004.  May God bless you this Easter and always.  Thank you, Ellen


He fashioned from their cross
a throne.
He made of death a door.
He robed his nakedness
in love,
And needed nothing more.

For though they wrapped his
broken flesh
in linen crisp and white,
He left sin’s costly fabric
And cloaked himself in light

That shines the centuries
to pierce earth’s dark despair,
By spilling scarlet car-
Up Heaven’s radiant stair.

  1. Thanks for the support, Ellen. Kind lovers of language like you are the reason so many of us small press editors keep going.
