On this day










On this day when thoughts of good and well and right

infuse themselves in stomachs bursting full,

one needs pause to see the irrelevance of might

and from our best, our bright, our love, to cull

all memory, satiated with fear of less

and stop to ponder on this day

what better ways we might glean to redress

the empty mouths and lives of those without say.

For this once year time we’re given time

for smiles of loved ones, lives of laughter’d ranks.

Then through the eyes of gratitude we’ll climb

to rest in God’s full bosom, hearts ripe with thanks.
