Lady Poverty

Come, Lady Poverty*, as the evening quells the heat,
Your tales of love and giving, kindly we entreat.
How holding on to nothing, yet none a want or need,
For gifting Him your heart, Our Lord, His kingdom cede.
~ D.F.
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
~ Matthew 5:3

*cf St Francis of Assisi and His Lady Poverty
