The One With Here Is The Church And Here Is The Steeple.

Dear Lover,

Let's stroll in the fields.
And kneel in the grass.
Hold grasshoppers in our palms.
Be idle.
And blessed.
Be startled by nature.
And say grace before meals.
But also, as Chesterson claims.
Before concerts and operas.
Pantomimes and plays.
Before opening a book.
And walks beneath trees.
Before sketching and painting and swimming and fencing.
Boxing and walking and playing and dancing.

And grace before we dip these pens into ink to write each other's names.
