The Beggar
By Jeanne D’Orge
 
  A LITTLE piece of your mantle, kind God …
… to cover me….
Out here in the open
The winds of Time blow death.
The world is a fiery sun        5
Beating upon my head.
I faint….
A piece of your mantle …
… a scrap … a single thread
Of the Eternal …        10
… will keep me….
Thank you, kind God!
