Prayers: Pocket Poets

Prayers: Pocket Poets

by Peter Washington, Various
     
 

Like music and dance, poetry is an art that antedates our secular civilization, and it has always borne the marks of its origin as a means by which to approach and praise the divine. The poems in this volume, drawn from cultures throughout the world, testify to the power of language to embody our profoundest spiritual needs, our most sacred aspirations.
