The Way

by Margaret, age 6

“The wolf shall dwell with the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat,
and the calf and the lion . . . together;
and a little child shall lead them.” (Isaiah 11: 6, ESV)

Palm Sunday

Again. Even today,
the Savior chooses

the donkey, sure-footed
on the road to

triumphant entry,
betrayal, anguish

in the dark night
of the Garden,

bearing his cross
to the place of the skull,

crucifixion, burial,
resurrection . . .

from the rubble
of cities,

rabid voices
of untruth,


hate, despair,

Even today.
