This is just wonderful! Such amazing thoughts portrayed so beautifully, like 'The lamb saw what the boy could not, a hushed angelic throng.' I particularly loved the last two verses. Fantastic. Thankyou.

Wow! I knew where you were going but it still made me so excited to know the beloved Lamb/lamb lives!

Very good! I love the connection of the "imperfect" lad to the unblemished lamb and then ultimately to the perfect lamb. Very good indeed.

Wow, indeed. This gave me chills. So many, many deep truths and emotions here. Masterful, gorgeous writing!
Your poems read like a Blake or Shelly. The timeliness of this poetic story, just before Easter, could not have been better placed. Involved with the theme of this story, I so empathized with both the boy and the lamb. That your words can create these kinds of real emotions testify to not only a great talent, but one truly in touch with God.
