(As the registrar said)

For life -
No remissions or paroles
As if the judge had said,
“In this case, Life means Life”.

For life -
Not the mereness of existence,
Lichen on rock,
But vivacity
Pinioned on the high winds
Of love.

For life -
That, through God’s grace,
And by His discipline,
In His ways
Another generation
Should shoulder staves for Him.

For life -
Heirs together,
Smiths together, tasters together
Of the grace
Of life.
