MY HOPE: A poem by Sr. Frances Smalkowski

December 16, 2017

MY HOPE 

 

Sweet tree --

           

You called out to me

With your many elderly open arms

Being so welcoming.

  

I was overcome!

  

Each day I visited you;

Felt your warm smile

And fierce inner strength.

 

How can I, too,

Be so worn

Yet with an aging beauty

Like yours?
