Welcome the King
The slow tread of animal feet
The swirling dust of a village street
The rising sound of loud hosannas
Palm branches scattered to welcome the King.
The slow tread of weary feet
The mocking taunts of a scourge’s beat
The rising sound of a hammer’s fall
A crown of thorns to welcome the King.
D Hayes (Poem first created on 10th April 1987)
