Benison or Blessing

Liturgical Verse

Benison or Blessing from the Latin -benediction, is exactly as the word implies, a call for God's grace to be bestowed upon someone or something. As a poetic genre, the poem may be written in any verse form at the discretion of the poet.

I have to include this Traditional Irish blessing, not only as an example of the poetic genre but as my wish for all who venture here.

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be ever at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall softly on your fields
And until we meet again, May God hold
you in the hollow of his hand.
