Patience is a virtue
A virtue is a grace
Grace is a little girl
who doesn’t wash her face!
Told to me by my ‘Little Grandma’ when I
Was a tiny girl.
Grace or Graceful?
There is grace in a group of flowers,
In the weeping of a Willow tree,
In a Swan sailing slowly on the lake.
In the sweep and swoop of birds on the wing.
In the “other-worldliness” of the Lakes
and the Mountains, here before us
and here after we have gone.
‘As graceful as a Gazelle’, I have heard said,
The Ballerina, balanced on her pointed toes
The girl being presented to the Queen,
curtseying and handing her a bouquet.
The Bride, processing down the Aisle,
The gracefulness of the sleeping infant.
Our gratefulness for grace and Gracefulness.
