The publican has ceased taking tithe of goods
and now gently takes tithe of the genealogy of Christ.
Mark, the lion of the Word, writes about the baptism
and the whole miracle until the Ascension.
The ox of Christ, Luke, the ploughman,
writes about the birth of Christ, his miracles and Ascension.
The angler, having left the deep water below,
now writes about the depth of the higher contemplation.
