I remember the relish
With which, when preaching, my father
Would name
The blessed God”.

I often heard John Welch
Speak to his God and Father,
But one distinct word I remember:

Twice I have heard Burton Jensen
Enunciate distinctly,
Giving each vowel its value,

If I could leave behind
One distinctive word
Of relationship with God -
That would content me.
