Christ, wandering with the Twelve

Language: English

Christ, wandering with the Twelve 
One day in the fields 
Under the hill of Barra by the sea, 
Said to them : 
' Why take ye thought for raiment ? 
Consider the wind-flowers 
How they grow, 
Swaying, swaying in the grass : 
They toil not, neither do they spin, 
Nor weave fine clothes to cover them. 
Yet I say unto you, 
That Oilioll in all his glory 
Was not arrayed like one of these.'
