O Beautiful One

O Beautiful One

A poem by Samantha Peters

O Beautiful One,

     Praise to you for words and work and wonder.

     My soul glories in

     the opening of your heart,

         the beauty of your wound

         that pours forth love and sorrow,

         sharp and sweet to my taste as

               red wine.
