Poetry

Providence

The kids will hear the tales

of their parents and grandparents

down to the point

when history textbooks

make a passing reference

of our current times, a mere sentence,

an allusion,

times we considered perilous

and of times that were

for many,

times not considered good

but times we survived

physically, spiritually, possibly both

and it being

by the grace of God,

times we will remember

and hopefully

learn from,

times of hope when

it seemed hopeless,

a mere sentence,

allusion,

reference,

few words but full of meaning

for them,

for us
