  1. What a beautiful poem! I don’t know anything about Thomas Merton, though I’ve heard the name. I need to check out more of his books. I’ve been getting into reading a lot of Catholic monks’ books, apparently. I’m currently reading Confessions by St. Augustine and loving it! Thank you for sharing this poem!

    1. I love Merton, though his writings aren’t always easy to take in. The Seven Story Mountain is the story of his conversion and is definitely worth reading. I’d also recommend checking out Henri Nouwen. His writings are make for great devotional reading.
