Room for all

This is my submission to Abbey of the Arts latest Poetry Party. The theme: Hospitality.

There is room for all at the fountain of life!

Let come who will to bathe or drink

these playful drops so cool, you think

“how lavish God does pour upon

this water’d life whose life He’s won.”

And though the edge of this lagoon

is busting, full of those who soon

will push and tear and force their way,

yet those who see can laugh, can play.

For wherever all are welcome, there

is space for all, both rough and fair.

God it is who will decide

the ones who choke out love with pride,

instead the pain’d and poor, invite;

together, let us dine tonight.
