Lenten Flowers

Comment on Lenten Flowers and see more Kathleen Raine poems below.

Written by: Kathleen Raine | Biography
 Primrose, anemone, bluebell, moss
Grow in the Kingdom of the Cross

And the ash-tree's purple bud
Dresses the spear that sheds his blood.
With the thorns that pierce his brow Soft encircling petals grow For in each flower the secret lies Of the tree that crucifies.
Garden by the water clear All must die who enter here!
