Grace

Grace gives me a day too beautiful
I had thought to stay indoors
and yet washing my dishes
straightening the shelves
finally throwing out the wilted onions
shrunken garlic cloves
I discover
I am happy
to be inside
looking out.
This, I think,
is wealth.
Just this choosing
of how
a beautiful day
is spent.

    I actually thought you had written this last
    night while you were doing the house cleaning for Easter.
