our little hour whistled by a bird
kept within a year a promise in a pocket
a stone we turn worrying its corners
into rounds we lean forward to each week
and look backward upon for strength
Friends gathered around a certain fire
the spark of love that cannot be contained
stills and refreshes with its lulling refrain
