Soft Raiment


Soft raiment can be much desired
silk, velvet, satin oft admired
a shawl with borders of gold thread
and finely fashioned roses spread
delights and many would acquire

My garment is of different weave
no jewels decorate my sleeve
sackcloth of mercy is my gown
repentant ashes grace my crown
since I have come to trust, believe

On bended knee and face supine
I thrill at bright celestial signs
new bottles brimming with new wine
all worldly glories to decline
when clothed with faith in the divine.

am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
