To Rochelle Hope Mehr's previous piece To Rochelle Hope Mehr's next piece
Prayer in Time of War Lead me back to the sphere Where Wonder conquers Fear. If I should trip the land mine Or fall prey to a bomb Let it never be said I tiptoed gingerly Or tried to evade the cascade. If I should fall by act of war Let the mortar of battle not crush The memory of how I lived: Pensive but not passive, Receptive yet on the qui vive.
