This garden

This garden defies the late frost to produce colorfully, abundantly
This woman reaches for her best and it turns out well
This man helps a tattered youth find his meaning in life
It may happen for us

This war-child rescued from her mother’s lifeless arms
This starving immigrant family welcomed into our
community and cared for open-heartedly
This city hall engages, listens to, its citizens
It may happen for us

This family becomes curious about each other
These people who must work together want to
These neighbors become community
It may happen for us
