Resending Today's Poetry Aloud From The Twelve-Gated City
The Second Gate (the Prodigal Son goes to the far country)
Note: we scheduled this podcast to go out as usual this morning, but have just noticed that it reached only a small number of our paid subscribers. We have no idea why this happened. We hope you will RECEIVE and enjoy this podcast.
This week’s Poetry Aloud is a reading of an excerpt from my book-length poem in progress, The Twelve-Gated City (© Anthony M. Esolen). Today’s selection, “The Second Gate,” is the second of the poem’s twelve verse narratives.
A certain man had two sons: And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living. And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. Luke 15:11-13
