Poetry Prayer: Stay at Home Reverend Goes Modern

The Stay at Home Reverend also has a handy undergraduate degree in English. So she can get all arty with her prayers. Inspired by e. e. cummings….

i thank You God for this most amazing

day:for the high spirits of my children

and the shrill clear sound of their squeals

for every time (twice today) they say yes

(i who haven’t had enough sleep am awake today,

we laid in a new supply of diet coke; and this is the birth

day of life and caffiene: and of the great

happening illimitable glee of my kiddos)

e.e. cummings was way better at this, God rest his soul…
