Advent IV

This Advent
as the burden
seems to increase
we must adjust
make do

Like an injury
it reaffirms the necessity
of humdrum
monotonous chores
that have become
so much a part
of our day
that they are
almost forgotten

Be thankful
for remembering them

Be thankful
for the ability
to act

Be thankful
for shoulders

December 1981
