Baptism blessing

Today we celebrate the Baptism of Jesus, when we are invited not only to reflect on this momentous event in Jesus' life, but also to recall and give thanks for the blessing of our own baptisms, and for the moments of call and affirmation we have each received. My social media feeds have contained several striking images and reflections, but this poem, posted by Jamberoo Abbey, stood out in particular. There's a mystery about it: who is, or could be, speaking the words? - and to whom are they addressed?
