TBT: Pleasance (2004)

I was wondering what God
Would say to me
If I asked him why
Children were so content-

With such devotion
I had looked for answers
Within my memories
Within my heart
But found none
That could be clever-

So I scanned the skies
And out loud I cried
God, give me a vision-

And in my thoughts
Came my resolve-

Children spend their time
Looking for joy-

Not for heaven

Dedicated to Emily Dickinson
