POEMS BY RUTH SHINNESS-BRINDUSE
FROM BOOK "HIDE MYSELF IN THEE"

MADAME GUYON,
A name synonymous
With suffering,
A life full of trials,
Cuffering and buffering.

THIS YOUNG LADY
So bowed down,
Just had to know.
To a monk to get counsel,
She would go.

HE WAS QUIET,
Not speaking,
But then finally said,
To Christ in your heart,
Be led.

BACK TO HER HOME,
She would try,
What great results,
My, oh my!
What wellsprings of joy,

THAT HAVE
Never been known,
Deep in her heart have
Now been sown.

THE SORROWS,
Do they lift?
I would say no, nay,
But she, soaring above it all
Each day.

MEISTER ECKHART

MEISTER ECKHART,
The 14th century monk
Who drew
The common folks
To teach them what he knew.

HIS EYE WAS SINGLE
To one message, too,
A mind completely devoted
To God, to ensue.

AS IN DOING
This discipline
You grew,
Your behavior would
Start to be new.

NO MATTER
What the work
You would do,
God would add every good
Thing to you.

WHAT YOU HAVE SOUGHT
Now comes into view.
What you pursue,
Now pursues you.
Things you would flee,
Now fly away, adieu.

WANT TO START
Start life over?
Here’s what to do.
To your God,
Continually rendezvous.
