    • POEM: The Toys by Coventry Patmore (9/18/2007 11:59:00 AM)

      Symbolism is in the eyes of the beholder. The father in this setting does not represent God any more than the son represents Jesus. What makes this poem live is the sadness in the human condition, that repeats itself ad infinitum. Who has not felt the unexpected wrath of someone they worship? Who has not hurt those whose very existence is intimately connected to his own? Who has not suffered the remorse of having acted hastily, foolishly and even viciously-characteristics so remote from what God is. This is not about life eternal, but about life temporal.
