nourish

at the holidays
the feasting begins in November
and lasts until that second day
of the new year

tempting treats and rich sauces
desserts, candies, breads,
gratins, casseroles, roasts
of turkey, beef and ham

each meal, an event
a fest, a ritual of love abundant,
gifts of indulgence and splendor
on china and gilt edged bowls

we thank our family and friends
nourishing those souls
with love overflowing
from heavy laden tables

Nourish our souls we pray
from Your table
set simply
with Everlasting Love.
