He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. – Isaiah 40:11

*   *   *

Sometimes He’s a shepherd

and sometimes the Lamb

each requiring discernment

of the other.

*   *   *

And they shall not teach every Man his Neighbour, and every Man his Brother, saying, Know the Lord, for they shall all know me, from the least to the greatest. (Elizabeth Bathurst, 1655?-1685)
