Lent 2021: Daily Poetry Series – March 21st

Sunday, March 21st, 2021 (5th Sunday in Lent)

“Lent” by Christina Rossetti

It is good to be last not first,
Pending the present distress;
It is good to hunger and thirst,
So it be for righteousness.
It is good to spend and be spent,
It is good to watch and to pray:
Life and Death make a goodly Lent
So it leads us to Easter Day.
