I explore some of these themes in my own poetry - "Sarah Laughed", "A Gloss on Sarah's Laughter" and "Martha," which are all in my first book of poems, Annunciations: Poems out of Scripture
and also available in the sidebar of this blog, at least for the run of the course. I also include in the sidebar some of my "Bethany Poems" - a work in progress so not necessarily ready for publication but relevant to our work in the class.
