Invocation

Prior to placement of pen, O muse, love,

grant grace, words by your touch imbued.

Used precisely as scalpel in surgeon’s hand,

Like Milton, “to justify the ways of God to man.”

Or Ghandi, “to be the change I wish to see…”

Let me speak without hypocrisy.

I lay upon your altar these simple words

so by you I speak, and by you I am heard.
