Parable of faith

  1. “Parable of Faith”

    Now, in twilight, on the palace steps
    the king asks forgiveness of his lady.

    He is not
    duplicitous; he has tried to be
    true to the moment; is there another way of being
    true to the self?

    The lady
    hides her face, somewhat
    assisted by shadows. She weeps
    for her past; when one has a secret life,
    one’s tears are never explained.

    Yet gladly would the king bëâr
    the grief of his lady: his
    is the generous heart,
    in pain as in joy.

    Do you know
    what forgiveness means? It means
    the whole world has sinned, the world
    must be pardoned—

    – Louise Glück
