'It Takes A Village To Raise A Child'

My red neck friends disdain her
Or hold her in open contempt
But she has given us a truth in a land of cities
It takes a village to raise a child.
So who were: Daisy and Pappy Millet? Don and Esther Urquhart? Ken Gardner and Jean Thompson? Sphen and Danny Loman? Jo Strain, George VanClef and Madeline Maurie?
Who were these people and others who raised me?
(The names that are not enshrined here)
You do not have to even know all their stories
To know their truth
It takes a village or at the very least
A church of great heart to help raise a child.
Bill Grace



Compass Poem #1

Love your life
Even if you must search to find it
Richard Bach owned an airplane
Even when he was broke.

The issue is neither sex nor money
They are the great static
On the television screens of our lives
The things that will destroy us
If we focus upon them too much.

There is a deeper chord
That will see you through
There is no safe harbor
Only a relative freedom where you can see
The fin of the shark approaching.

If you are to love your life
You must love what you do
Richard Bolles can help
But the burden is yours
To live in or climb from purgatory
Even as a baby’s diaper stinks.
Bill Grace



A Country Christmas Eve (1976 chapbook)

On a solitary vigil so cold and fair
The air took feeling from my face
And gave a glowing in its place,
I saw snow glistening upon the fields
And heard the ringing silence of the night.

Not a breath of wind stirred the snow to dance
As a renegade star put the moon to shame
A distant silver fire that lit the blue night sky.
