manna not from heaven

note: from wherever it is in the Bible that Moses and the Israelites find manna in the desert. always such a moving episode. ~acb

Manna not from heaven, but from the road beneath;

wandered in the wilderness, sought for what was meet

in the vengeful eyes of god. Who could have sought

such sugar, blended sour with the sweet,

gave glory to the one most high

and terrible, to keep

such a people as his sheep?
