'Arise go forth and conquer.' - Tennyson
The poster said with young duckling pictured and quoting big T
I can still celebrate that spirit though old
But know that for duckling to grow to duck
Wise eyes must guide to keep brother hawk from lunch.

Puppy's Arrival Theology

The puppy coming in from afar is good theology
With seal broken and water provided
The cats with magi caution approach his crate
Not a sound is made.
The Vet is our next stop
To comply with guarantee requirements.
He sleeps.
A new creature to be loved
Who will with time alert us to the presence
Of others we can not see or sense,
The challenge to make the arrival
Less trauma filled than it was for Jesus.
Bill Grace



Refraction Off An Interview With Wendy Whelan (Charlie Rose Show)

Madame, in Moscow we saw
The Bolshoi perform Giselle.
But Charley's cut of your work
Helped me to understand your husband's comment
That on stage and armed you are not
Back stage or even breakfast companion.

Proportion has been a gift
Compared to the beauty of your movement's grace
That defies this small thing called gravity
And makes this pen salute both your vision and your power.

*Wendy Whelan is the principal dancer of the New York City Ballet.

The Daily Doggerel - Reading Mary Oliver

Every evening I try to read her
five poems by Mary Oliver
five poems - no more - no less.

They free me to be still
they help me to be quiet
I - for five poems - do not apologize
to the world for who I am
that I exist
that I write bad poetry.

They give me strength
with which I go after reading
and help clean the cat box.
Bill Grace
