I hope that God won’t turn His back
I hope the Lord leaves just a crack
Where I may slip within His heart
To beg him for a silver cart.

Please…no gilded chariot of old
With creaky wheels of flaking gold
That split and peel along the way
Then hurriedly fly, to run astray.

Grant to me please mithril spokes
So rancid air’s not trapped nor choked
By thoughtless words of those whose trade
Is flipping hearts to darkened spades.

I beseech and beg for happy thoughts
To share with others who’re distraught
A boutonnière to better cope
A broach for pockets. filled with hope.

    I hope the Lord opens up a crack for your wonderful imagination to slip into. The wonderful Mikki is long over due. Love, daver

    Love that "silver cart," and the "mithril" spokes. Choice of words here make harmonious sounds, eye catching, mystic. I remember the word, mithril - is it Tolkien? Been so long since I read the Lord of the Rings, I can't remember just what that magic stuff does. Love, daver
