wait civilly

Effective post —
I take it to be a Skill to wait civilly
which is a bore,

Time duly passed

a prayer,
a little hit or miss

I am still
burning with desire
to know the cause,
But 'tis a special grace
to enjoy mercy

. . . . . . . .

The OED word of the day for the erasure poem | commentary is 'effectual,' which is delightfully ironic. This is only about the third time I've picked a 'story' and forced the text into it, but had to commemorate the arrival today of this postcard (Kerala backwaters, south India), which I mailed to myself in Mumbai on 27 november.
