NOTES:
The wedding feast at Cana is one of the most well known stories in Christian scriptures, where wine serves as a powerful spiritual metaphor.  This story is also the inspiration for To our Lord, upon the Water Made Wine by Richard Crashaw.

Cana
James Freeman Clarke (1810-1888), American writer/theologian
                                                                                       reading of Clarke's Cana
Dear Friend! whose presence in the house,
Whose gracious word benign,
Could once, at Cana's wedding feast,
Change water into wine;

Come, visit us! and when dull work
Grows weary, line on line,
Revive our souls, and let us see
Life's water turned to wine.

Gay mirth shall deepen into joy,
Earth's hopes grow half divine,
When Jesus visits us, to make
Life's water glow as wine.

The social talk, the evening fire,
The homely household shrine,
Grow bright with angel visits, when
The Lord pours out the wine.

For when self-seeking turns to love,
Not knowing mine nor thine,
The miracle again is wrought,
And water turned to wine.


from The World's Best Poetry Volume IV (1904)
