Come Eat

       Come Eat

Come, sit with Me and sup,
I've set a place and poured a cup,
I am the food I've come to give
In bread and wine that you may live.

Come, sit and eat My Holy Food
With yeast of spirit-life imbued,
Ingredients by my hands mixed
For you upon the crucifix.

Come, eat My everlasting meal,
No more a gnawing hunger feel
From deep within an empty soul
That eats the crumbs from this world's bowl.

Come, take a spirit-food that's true,
And made to always nourish you,
With spirit-strength and love impart,
New life will flow within your heart.

Rich Tassinari

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
