What We Miss

When the Lady died,
you cried and cried,
but she was not 
really a saint, though
you treated her so--
and when the true saint
died in time nearby,
there was little weeping
and no pomp and silly
circumstance for her.
But then she was 
quite old and wont 
to love the poor....

And when the Prince
expired alone and 
untethered, you 
wailed and mourned--
but why was your grief?
You did not know him,
he did not know himself.

Why do you seek false gods
to follow and vainly worship,
and not seek out the One 
who made you before time?

    Wonderful poem-meditation. Conscience may hard grow like grass at its time. Vainly you pull and ask it to grow. It has its time. We miss Patience, a giant statue of patience and that incredible wind of hope...The weather as well as the characters seem to be very changeable.
