Ascension of Christ by Rembrandt van Rijn, 1636


John Donne, 1572 – 1631

Salute the last, and everlasting day,
Joy at the uprising of this Sun, and Son,
Ye whose true tears, or tribulation
Have purely wash’d, or burnt your drossy clay.
Behold, the Highest, parting hence away,
Lightens the dark clouds, which He treads upon;
Nor doth he by ascending show alone,
But first He, and He first enters the way.
O strong Ram, which hast batter’d heaven for me!
Mild lamb, which with Thy Blood hast mark’d the path!
Bright Torch, which shinest, that I the way may see!
O, with Thy own Blood quench Thy own just wrath;
And if Thy Holy Spirit my Muse did raise,
Deign at my hands this crown of prayer and praise

Ascension of Christ by Rembrandt van Rijn, 1636

12:00 PM Emily Dickinson Recital

With Eurythmy by Polly Saltet and
Elucidations by Jan Kees Saltet

EMILY DICKINSON: beloved, fascinating – enigmatic. Both her poetry and her life have this quality of a riddle, which we are attracted to, which we want to solve, but never quite get to the bottom of.  However, some poems hit home directly, and many open up when approached with care and respect.  The aim of this recital is to enjoy a few poems, and lift the veil where possible. Paper copies of the poems will be provided.
