May you have a quiet evening
and gentle waking when you rise.
May your dreams bring a smile
and the refreshment of dew upon your eyes.
May you have a strong stout place
to keep you from wind and rain.
May you have a good strong life
for your work, and without pain.
May you have provision in your pantry,
and a cook’s necessities upon your shelf.
May you be blessed with great wisdom
and have the good grace to keep it to yourself!
Bless you, ’tis another glorious night of poetry at dVerse Poets Pub, and the man behind the bar, Paul himself, bids “…let us put pen to paper tonight and write a Blessing Poem. May our words create ripples of light and hope in the pond of the world.” So gather near the fire, light up your pipe if you’ve a mind, lift a pint (or what have you), and prepare to bless and be blessed.
