The Evangeliad (26:26-29)


Section 26:26-29 (corresponding to Luke 15:25-28)

The party began, and as they rejoiced
For the homecoming of the younger boy,
In from the fields the older son walked,
But hearing the sound of singing, he stopped.

He asked a servant about all the noise,
Why the whole household was raising its voice.
"Your brother's returned!" the servant replied.
"Your father's arranged a whole party inside!"

Then suddenly struck with anger, he turned
And stood with his back to the party he spurned.
The father, he heard of his son's response
And came out to see him there at that spot.
