Lent 1992

Have you ever been

            in a monastery

at Terce

            the midmorning pause

            from daily labour


when an old monk in a cowl

            brings you

            a generous slice of bread

from a loaf

            he baked himself


& black coffee slowly cooling

            in a tin cap of a cup

the bread

            still warm from the oven

            & not needing butter
