Of Days Like This...

 Days like this always

Pass far too fast

No bastion can fence in

A shadow cast...


Is bittersweet

Soon its fulfillment

Lies ‘neath our feet...

Who among us

Can keep anything?

Time is Supreme

In its winnowing...

Treasure the measure

Of pleasure lent

For soon the flower

Is hour-bent...

Darling, to wish

Is to waste what is

Let’s taste the mercy

Of days like this

This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Ps.118:24

Today in Canada, we are celebrating Thanksgiving Day. Every moment is drenched with mercy-gifts! Thank-you God.
