They came from all over
     Bahrain, Turkey, Rome:
A little band of women
     with hope all their own
To learn and to study,
     To become stronger in their faith
To encourage one another
     In the footsteps of the saints.

Life is like the wind
It comes and it goes
You
You have a choice to make
:
How will you live
When life
Is like the wind

Why am I here and not there?

I am HERE because I have been THERE.

Who was she in the Garden, there before
The tree with cherubim and flaming Sword
Was guarded? What true thoughts, not culture's lore,
By grace, and yet by more: first fellowship's
Commune, did her mind hold, and her heart own?

We are equal, this we know, For the Bible tells us so.
Jew and Greek to God belong; Racial barriers are all wrong.

Won’t you walk in the Garden with me,
And see me as Christ would see?
With me loving you and you loving me,
Won’t you walk in the Garden with me?

Veteran of Without:
Beneath notice and befriended by Scarcity.
Known to Empty to Lack,
Who daily dodges Want and sips broth with Silence,
Dared to relinquish meager mite.

When the star in the sky is gone

When the kings and the princes are home

When the shepherds are back with their flocks

The work of Christmas begins

Today, I am a rebel.

I forget about the laundry and dishes.

I turn all my phones to silent

And write.

Look at the stars! look, look up at the skies!
O look at all the fire-folk sitting in the air!
The bright boroughs, the circle-citadels there!
Down in dim woods the diamond delves! the elves'-eyes!
The grey lawns cold where gold, where quickgold lies!
Wind-beat whitebeam! airy abeles set on a flare!
Flake-doves sent floating forth at a farmyard scare!—
Ah well! it is all a purchase, all is a prize.
