21 The Tangle of the Trinity

21 The Tangle of the Trinity


Ere by the spheres time was created, thou

Wast in the mind, who is thy Son and Brother;

Whom thou conceivest, conceived; yea, thou art now

Thy Maker’s maker, and thy Father’s mother…….


Thou hast light in dark, and shutt’st in little room

Immensity, cloister’d in thy dear womb.

Poem by John Donne
