Franciscan Poetry: by Dan Volpe, SFO

  • ~~~~~~~~~
  • +++CHASTITY+++
  • I'm married. Can I be chaste?
  • Desire for my spouse erased?
  • Love should move.
  • But faithfulness will prove
  • That lust by love is replaced.
  • ~~~~~~~~~
  • +++HUMILITY+++
  • Is humility lying down flat
  • On the floor by the door, like a mat?
  • I'm flawed, not floored
  • In the eyes of the Lord.
  • And He loves me in spite of that.
  • ~~~~~~~~~
  • +++ POVERTY+++
  • Should I go and buy more?
  • Pray, and ask, "What for?"
  • If reason be vain, then perhaps refrain.
  • If good, head out to the store.
