The Morning Reading: "Now we can go"

The Old Man
- Macdonald Harris

We have passed all the tests
We have learned French
We have traveled to Europe
We have seen the pyramid of Cheops
We have written a  book
We have had measles, chicken-pox, and cancer
We have kissed four girls and another has smiled at us
We have forgiven God for all he has done to us
We have asked permission of the lady at the head of the table
Now we can go


(Published in Pearl #16, Fall 1992.)
