Because I want to keep clear of copyright infringement, I never quote you a whole poem. This time, however, I long to be able to show you the complete work. It is that wonderful. Please click below to “read the entire poem.”
Another morning and I wake with thirst
for the goodness I do not have. I walk
out to the pond and all the way God has
given us such beautiful lessons. Oh Lord,
I was never a quick scholar but sulked
and hunched over my books past the
hour and the bell; grant me, in your
mercy, a little more time. Love for the
earth and love for you are having such a
long conversation in my heart.
