A GRACE BEFORE WRITING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: This is a sacrament, I think!
Last Line: May none but honest words be penned!
Alternate Author Name(s): Hall, Galway


THIS is a sacrament, I think!
Holding the bottle toward the light,
As blue as lupin gleams the ink;
May Truth be with me as I write!

That small dark cistern may afford
Reunion with some vanished friend, --
And with this ink I have just poured
May none but honest words be penned!
