Pretend your first letter is A,
your first number is 1.  Pretend you
recognize the word is—nothing more:

(You are 6.)  And “Is is is” is
a sentence you can read.  But forget

Pretend your mind is clean.
As clean as your feet before bed.
There is a tree in the garden,

and the fruit looks good.   There is
a voice and a man.  There is a snake.
A voice and a man and a snake and a tree.

(Forget what you think you know.)   Listen.
The teacher’s voice is saying, “The snake is like
the caterpillar we read about last week.

Do you think the snake is very, very hungry?”

“Christian personalism is the sacramental sharing of the inner secret of personality in the mystery of love. This sharing demands full respect for the mystery of the person, whether it be our own person, or the person of our neighbor, or the infinite secret of God.”

Seasons of Celebration. New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1950: 22.
