Beware the Leaven of the Pharisees

    “Beware the Leaven of the Pharisees,” Ensign, July 1989, 46

    Beware the Leaven of the Pharisees

    Third Place

    “Without body, parts, or passions,”

    The wise beards sage—

    Over-leavened wisdom,

    Worldly weight the gauge.

    Shunning holy manna

    To gnaw at hollow bones,

    Preaching graven imageless,

    They feed their flock with stones.

    While the child of humble heart

    Who hungers through the night

    Cries, “Feed me, O my Father!”

    And he is fed on Light.
