A Poem For Sunday


"Psalm" by Mark Jarman first appeared in The Atlantic in June, 1997:

Lord of dimensions and the dimensionless,
Wave and particle, all and none,

Who lets us measure the wounded atom,
Who lets us doubt all measurement,

When in this world we betray you
Let us be faithful in another.
