Egg Nog - Poem by John Wieners

The quality of mercy

is not strained

It lieth along the center road

It falleth from the nude sky

as gentle earth rained

over green pastures He maketh
it to abide by Misted Q lanes

whosoever can tell what kiss
brings forward HIS peace

The quality of mercy is not strained
It falleth from the gentle earth like heaven.
