A poem a day in April from Rutgers English PhD students and friends.

Pattern

Found in Harrison, again, perennially

Our Hymn is obviously a Hymn of Invocation
Of a ritual type
It opens with a refrain in ordinary lyric
And this refrain is repeated
The structure of the Hymn is important
It falls into three parts

First the actual invocation
Then the ritual performed
Next a lamentable gap
