Thirteen  Forewords
to the Gospel of St John



[For Les Murray]


 
In the beginning, Word.
Word was with God
And dwelt God beginning --
Became with, beginning among,
In, was, and among.
Beginning us was flesh.
And Word became flesh
And with us: the
Word dwelt among us --
Became, was, dwelt, the
God among the flesh,
Dwelt in with flesh --
In us became God.
