28 One can hardly conceive of a more human Christ, or a more material Savior. It is in this sense that Miłosz’s Christ is helpless: nailed to a Cross and kept firmly fixed there by His followers. In the last few lines He raises His punctured hand in explanation to His “vainly calling” Father. In this sense is the unthinkable possible: Christ, or at least the Christ of pious and lazy imagination, “perishes” along with the minds of the people who created him as Deus ex machina, as rationalization, as excuse.
What can I do? / I comprehend neither the beginning nor the goal. The incessant cry: Saviour, / take your real reward from our hands. / Our breaths waft upon you / as we surround you in a line. / Agree. You will be stretched out far above / and wreathed, and holy above all holies. (56-63) The poem ends with fourteen lines—two quatrains and two tercets, a perfect sonnet—in which Miłosz’s odd Christ envisages another Ascension, which in this case sounds most of all like an escape. This Christ thinks of saving no one but Himself: Oh, my heaven!
But it is, for sure. / If we gazed at it, better and more wisely, / we’d see within the garden of the world / more than one new flower, more than one star. (6-9) Yet this is no paradox, but an affirmation of the traditional, western, Christian idea of that second, spiritual plane which cannot be attained Youth and War: 1933-1945 31 during this life, but which still will only be arrived at by virtue of our living this life: Some say, that our eye deceives us, / and that there is no garden, that there only seems to be.
