Sister Mary Faith Schuster, OSB
enough to have this morning's day
The sky swept clean by stars' adventurous light
That garnished earth and gave the animals
Freelancing songs and stillnesses of night.
We share the entire wealth of calendars
That hold the love of earth and happy heaven
Marking our own spot in centuries
Writing our own labors in our own love given.
It's quite a legacy
to have charge of Time
To tick the meaning of the endless ages
Custodians of streets and roads and houses
Spelling our own names on our own pages.
Speaking our deeds and hopes on holy earth
Entrusted to us at our lucky birth.
Mary Faith Schuster, OSB
