GIVING THANKS

When we have some white wine that we can bite into

We’d like green olives on the side:

A bit of bread, a violinist

A cobbled street besides –

Near tourists and a pigeon or two

Hearts in tumult, waiting

For a message from above:

Promises of the Word – a sign, a sighting!

Thanking him for breath and life

For food and drink, for sound and sight;

Sunday in ancient Covent Garden

Is where my body fades but my soul takes flight.
