IN ONE PLACE, SAINT BRIGID

In one place, Saint Brigid at the head of the table,
poets, blacksmiths, healers, dairymaids and cattle herd,
midwives, newborn babies, gaunt, exhausted fugitives
gathered to see a show, a fantastic miracle to behold,
to help weaken the danger and its threats,
to abate the rot of pestilence,
to quell the raging storm of each sea,
to share love and strength and compassion,
to bond diverse thinkers and thoughts with one saintly word,
to withdraw from the grim doom of the impossible.
