Poetry Corner

A particularly favourite Rudyard Kipling piece from his "Marklake Witches” — Rewards and Fairies and could almost be seen as a follow—up to my first "Poetry Corner” choice "T he Road not taken” by Robert Frost. In fact, it appears as No.48 to Frost’s No. 47 a "The Nation’s Favourite Poem”.

They shut the road through the woods
Seventy years ago.
Weather and rain have undone it again,
And now you would never know
There was once a road through the woods
Before they planted the trees.
It is underneath the coppice and heath
And the thin anemones.
Only the keeper sees
That, where the ring-dove broods,
And the badgers roll at ease,
There was once a road through the woods.

Yet, it you enter the woods
Of a summer evening late.
When the night—air cools on the trout-ringed pools
Where the otter whistles his mate,
(They fear not men in the woods,
Because they see so few.}
You will hear the beat of a horse’s feet,
And the swish of a skirt in the dew,
Steadily cantering through
The misty solitudes,
As though they perfectly knew
The old lost road through the woods
But there is no road through the woods.

I hope you enjoy reading the piece,Kathy Denton

Render Unto Caesar

When Jesus was a child the Romans introduced the census tax. It was so unpopular that a man called Judas – a good revolutionary name – led an uprising against it.

The Romans dealt ruthlessly with those who’d taken part in the uprising. The countryside was littered with the crosses bearing the bodies of dead or dying revolutionaries. It was a warning and a reminder to the people that paying tax was not optional, but compulsory. You have to wonder what effect this had on Jesus as a boy.
