This Poem

This poem is a promise

A promise that says fealty

As much as the annual recitations of the landless to the landed

The foreswearing of commitment

This poem sings your praises

Heaping halleluiahs on the sighs of angels

Listening to the echoes of your bright truth

That you call forth so effortlessly

In stringed communion with these comfortable friends

This poem says we stand together

Guarding each others back

Against the slings and arrows of fortunes outraged

Yet holding fast, at last

This poem walks you home

This poem is a promise and a hope

This poem invites you to stay
