day 182

With upright heart he tended
   and guided them with
         skillful hand.  Psalm 78:72

when they show
up at our doors,
      in duffle coat,
   old hat, and
      battered suitcase
      in hand, may
we not overlook
the tag reading,
'please take care
of this child of mine,
         thank you' as
we welcome them
into our hearts
as you did us.
