Seed: Where Ask is Have
Many of you know I write mysteries. As a result, I consider it my responsibility to read mysteries. My favorite way is to buy a whole series by the same author, and move into that world for a while. I learn loads, and not even remotely about mysteries.
In the final Adam Dagliesh novel, The Private Patient by P.D. James, there is a bronze plaque in a private chapel inscribed with a poem by 18th century British poet Christopher Smart …
But stronger still, in earth and air,
and in the sea, the man of prayer,
and far beneath the tide;
and in the seat to faith assigned,
where ask is have, where seek is find,
where knock is open wide. (italics mine)
I was arrested into stillness.
Where ask is have. Where is that?
Where seek is find. Where is that?
Where knock is open wide. Where, oh where, is that?
Here, dear one. Here.
