April 5th Poem - Also



ALSO

“And when he has found it, he lays it upon his shoulders rejoicing.”    St. Luke 15:5

Trembling
when the shepherd found you,
touched you, calmed you,
made your breath like music,
lifting you to his shoulders
you nuzzled his face,
a laugh spurted from him
and he said, “I am glad also.”
