Here I, as still as windless leaves,
I, listen to the inner voice,
Take counsel in the righteous choice,
And mouth the prayer that God receives.
From words upon a page He speaks,
Those I would hear and slowly eat,
To find where God and Christians meet —
These are the ways my spirit seeks.
UPDATE: This work inspired another, a couplet by friend Rick.
