A Harmony Pastor Feedback: NIGHT PRAYER: Monday 5/2


Simply this afternoon, Lord,

    on Sumner Street in Cambridge,

    simply exterior of Harvard Sq.:

I breathed, inhaled and reveled in

    my first actual whiff of spring!


You, my saving sommelier, 

    uncorked this longed-for season 

and poured a glass of springtime

    to quench my thirst for pleasure…


I lifted it to eye it is pure, pale gentle

and savor it is bouquet:

    heady with vernal spirits;

    oaked the way in which I favor chardonnay;

    advanced with hints of rain-moist earth,

        woodsy mulch and dogwood on the bloom…

My soul craves spring’s recent scent, Lord,

I am thirsting for its promise, 

    poured out to fill my coronary heart 

with the intoxicating promise

    of your Spirit and your grace…

For this afternoon’s candy pleasure, Lord,

    I provide you with thanks and reward

and pray this be a classic yr

     for all that spring will deliver…

Shield me, Lord, whereas I am awake

and watch over me whereas I sleep

that awake, I would hold watch with you

and asleep relaxation in your peace…
