The gift

The gift

Words so long unsaid

About these ads

slip from their wrappings.

When they do, we learn

the when, more than the what,

lifts us off our feet.

Touch too long unfelt,

when it comes, at last,

in dulce jubilo,

About these ads

gives us our name and sets us

safely back on earth.
