Holy Sonnet XIV

This struck a chord in my soul this morning as I read it for school.  Takes a little bit of time to get past the antiquated phrasing, but it’s worth it. 🙂

  1. After the third read-through, I understood the essence of the poem. Yes, it is a worthwhile poem to unravel. The tension between what the writer wants and what he cannot help is poignant. It reminds me of Paul’s lament in Romans 7 about doing what he does not want to do, and not doing what he wants to do. I like the analogy of engagement “unto Your enemy” – a relationship we cannot ourselves divorce. Thanks for sharing!
