"Oh, really, Cleophas, now you believe
For He has shown Himself along the way?
No longer was I trying to deceive,
Hallucinating angel words today?
I am your wife and so I must be glad
That such a grace was given to a male,
Yet as your wife I'm right to be still mad
You thought the Risen Christ a woman's tale.
So let's agree on this, God will repay us:
I won't tell you of any resurrections,
And, Darling, when you're going to Emmaus,
Please always ask a Stranger for directions."
All this he heard without words, packed within
A tapping foot, and eyebrow-arching grin.
