“National Poetry Month (II)”: Another new poem

One more bit o’ verse in honor of “National Poetry Month”:

 

21st Century Blessing

 

To a future effulgent:

tall trees and new flowers;

give us our daily bread

and save us from the blight

 

Thine and thy kingdom

withheld from us ’til death;

keep them close, our sons and daughters

and protect us from the blight

 

Have faith in the miraculous

harbingers of grace;

conjure us sweet loaves and fishes

and save us from the blight
