St. Stephen’s Circa 1932

In my nest on the pew I snuggle against her

play with her gloved hand stroke her fur scarf

Dark chords from the organ

vibrate my bones

thunder off walls

and roll down the aisle

Slivers of light slant

from tall windows

painting patterns of jewels

on the gray granite floor

As the voice drones unending

I wiggle and fidget

she slips me a secret

wrapped in gold foil

With her arm firm around me

I unwrap my prize

suck its lemony sweetness

- my first taste of God

~ Anita Mewherter from Shells in my Pocket
