Writing in the last few years of his life, Gilbert Shaw continued his long-used style of rhythmic free verse to ponder on scripture and aspects of Christian faith and practice. These prayers embody his hope that they will communicate ‘some moments of intuition as to the meaning of our life’s pilgrimage through time to eternity’.
