O Vocative

Negations of the Areopagite
dropped all my thoughts into my heart.

When Eckhart taught of inner birth
and death I lay aside his book
and wept into my hands.

When Tauler taught of inner death
and birth I lay aside his book
and wept into my hands.

O vocative!  O Christendom!
(not like the scribes, that voice).
