TO KEEP A TRUE LENT    (Robert Herrick)

 

Is this a Fast, to keep                                                        No: ‘tis a Fast to dole

The harder lean?’                                                             Thy sheaf of wheat

And clean                                                                           And meat

From the fat of veals and sheep?                                Unto the hungry soul.

 

Is to quit the dish                                                                It is to fast from the strife

Of the flesh, yet still                                                           And old debate,

To fill                                                                                      And hate;

The platter high with fish?                                               To circumcise thy life.

 

Is it to fast an hour,                                                            To show a heart gref-rent;

Or ragg’d to go,                                                                To starve thy sin,

Or show                                                                                Not bin;

A down-cast look and sour?                                          And that’s to keep thy Lent.

 

Almsgiving is one of the disciplines of Lent. Putting money in the St. Anthony’s box in the church is one way of giving alms to the poor.
