The poem(s) are below...



His body white and rigid
Mouth, a bitter line,
Eyes dark with pain, he sits

As frigid as a statue,
Holds a leather bible
Flat against his chest.

He quickly turns the leaves
And reads a psalm, then murmurs,
Haltingly, a prayer.

"Redeemer of all sins,
As you have taught us to
Forgive, forgive me now!

Please fill my heart with love,
Dear blessed Jesus, stamp
Your imprint on my spirit."

His body thaws, mouth softens,
Eyes regain their light.
Once more a man, slowly

He arises, gently
Puts aside the bible
And, at last, he smiles.

Once again, he's whole,
Sincere repentance is
The cleanser of the soul.
