'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



Customer Service

The metric gurus
Do not understand
The magic in customer service.
Buying bread in Walmart
I experience again
What I have found
In gun shops and a thousand
Other unspeakable places,
The hunger to please you
As a customer.

For a moment
You are not a datum
But something special
That will wait a week
Travel half a county
To buy a loaf of bread.
Bill Grace



Daily Blessing

I give my blessing to the world daily
Not from Rome but from Paris
Where the Poemhunter server lives
Not from a balcony high above the masses
But here as you read and
I struggle to write on your heart
I give my blessing to you daily.
Bill Grace



A Post William Cullen Bryant Thanatopsis

The throng that came filled the church
The box can only hold a body
A diamond, a life - the box is not the end
It can not hold a soul
Nor the numbers in our church so bold
To declare by their presence that death is not the end.

There is that which lives beyond the frame
It is our spirits that roam the earth for good or ill
It matters not that we are still
For we always live in others.
Bill Grace
