Bon Courage

(for Nancy N.)

They do not really matter

those eternal Naysayers

Or their close cousins

the forswearing betrayers

We live in blessed mezzanines

between such counterfeit layers

Immune to their slanders

as innocent forebearers

As the lithe spirit wanders

for we are but wayfarers

Blithe in our affections

safe in each other’s prayers
