Clarisse

Clarisse believed the word of God was love,
Knew little of the Bible, lived the Golden Rule
Would often recite to Sunday school children
When winter’s snow had turned to ice

Thought that Jesus preached the truth,
Which was love man as you would love God
Follow God as you lead a small child
Was buried by the shore of a crystalline lake
Blue flowers blossomed through the ice

1987
