Comfort of God

A man riding a red horse
     at night in a hollow,
Stopped and stood among
     white-flowering trees
          growing there.
The Angel of the Lord.

Other horses, colored
     red, sorrel and white,
Stood just behind, sent
     to walk the earth
          without fear.
Defenders of the Word.

The time for mercy
     has come again.
A surveyor's string
     is stretched out
          across the land.
The Measure of His Rod.

His holy house
     will be re-built.
He will once more
     sit upon His
            earthly throne.
The Comfort of God.

Zechariah 1:7-17

    Included in the Parade of
Prophets Zechariah collection.
