Raymond A. Foss Poems
Back to Poems Page
A Thud and a Squish by Raymond A. Foss
The pastor had them enthralled,
And us too, describing the
Shaping of each of us,
Using the words of the prophet
And more visceral, more childish language
To inform the congregation
Of the love, the constant love
Of the potter for each creation,
For the loving correction, the loving
Restarting of the vessel,
The renewing of the malleable clay
Into something useful, wonderful
Beautiful to the potter.

September 9, 2007
Based on Jeremiah 18:1-11 and
the sermon, “The Potter and the Clay”,
by the Reverend Peter Hey,
Wesley United Methodist Church,
Concord, NH 09/09/07
