Poetic Pairings: November

Thou Shalt not Steal John Singer Sargent 1918 Imperial War Museum

A Child's Prayer

For Morn, my dome of blue,
For Meadows, green and gay,
And Birds who love the twilight of the leaves,
Let Jesus keep my joyful when I pray.

For the big Bees that hum 
And hide in bells of flowers;
For the winding roads that come
To evening's holy door,
May Jesus bring me grateful to his arms,
And guard my innocence for evermore.

Siegfried Sassoon
