Wagner, The Flowering Tree (2012, St. Mary’s Church, Iffley)

A man, a river, and a tree
Enamelled with the flowers of May.
Good Friday sky as blue as sea
A hill as green as Easter day.

A tree, a river, and a man
Who hangs from branches thick with flowers.
A love which flowed since time began
Is measured here in three long hours.

A man, a tree, a river flows
Down to a font which leads us in
Towards where man, tree, river shows
That Easter where our lives begin.
