from Letters and Papers from Prison By Dietrich Bonhoeffer:
“I will write to you in Italy about the Song of Solomon. I would in fact read it as a song about earthly love, and that is probably the best ‘christological’ interpretation.”

Rightly do they love.
They knew and they desired.
They did not shy to know so that they could desire more.
Knowledge came
and the self apart was full as if incorporated.
The hand outstretched
the pull
each aspect of existence.
what is said
to release pains of thought;
to collectively answer.
It is now
and will ever be.
They rightly loved;
they who moved from right to surrender
in ‘christological’ interpretation.
