Gary Edward Geraci

Beholden Our Form

Boldly, bodily heirs, not mistaken,

Beauty becoming, beholden our form

To the Man beyond all men, partaken

Of in the wheat and wine. We may transform,

 

Transfigured through a pace deliberate:

The brain first and then the body exalts

Or just simple hearts and a child like start.

Art portrays tender women without faults;

 

Gentle kings, knights courageous - bannerets.

Subjects, slaves and servants, full servitude,

Spinning lambswool on hand spun spinnerets.

For the world to come - certain certitude

 

That God will raise their fleshly bodies high

In the manner of Christ’s who will not die.
