For John Donovan, my poet son.







Slip and forever
be lost the soul
that always had strength
yet no will to unfold?

Be patient, my child,
I believe in your star,
and I cherish the infant
and man you now are.

Consider the rose budó

When we try to open
the fragile young thing,
the mess we create
is destruction foreseen,


but patience with God
and before our own eyes
the rose will unfold
with a will to survive.

The length and breadth and scope of your faith in God, and your veritable experience of life is awesome..
I loved that definitive line " But Patience with God "....key passage for me...
Having three sons by the Grace of God I can relate, each is different in his own way, but utterly unique before the eyes of God !
Great poem....you are better at these than you realise...:)
