balthasar clerihew

Kim Fabricius and Ben Myers of the theological blog Faith and Theology have been composing clerihews (four-line biographical poem) of modern theologians here and here.  I thought you would like to read their clerihew of Hans Urs von Balthasar:

Hans Urs von Balthasar
Really raised the bar,
From descensus, to drama, to logic – higher and higher –
With a leg-up from Adrienne von Speyr.

See you can rhyme Speyr.

I’ve thought about revising my tagline for vonspeyr.net.  Perhaps it should be: “devoted to getting higher and higher with a leg-up from Adrienne von Speyr.”
