advent anthem

Watch for the light
strain for vistas that aren't seen with sight

and keep in step
with all the earth

Call out in sigh
or surrendered sleep
for you are a child equal
to your making

and watch

Watch for sons
who devise plans of rescue
Watch for builders of cites and
soup kitchens
Menders of feathered souls
themselves oiley fringed and

as a seam of warmth threads through
from time and memory
Watch for light
Watch for waiting
Wait for believing in all things new
