HYMN TO LOVE!


Not being religious
but being a believer

only in
Love

I try to remember
how my childhood rosary goes:

“Thou, O Lord
shall open my lips
&
my tongue shall
announce thy praise! ”

That
(at least)

was the gist
of it.

And now I sing
of us & how

your kisses
open my voice

And I sing.

I sing!

This hymn
to Love!
