ambrose (2013)

a poem found in Ambrose Breslin's Requiem Mass booklet

ambrose of sea and sky
you watch as the evening
casting its shadows
takes this day

ambrose of stone and flame
you are waiting
and on this morning
there is nothing fresh and green
- the air is silent

ambrose of night and wind
you hear us
- near restful waters
and if you should speak
(of a wedding day in '57?)
you will hold, you will give

ambrose of cloud and sleep
you are made of time
- light to them always (no bounds through snow and rain)
and warming the earth below
(most welcome, thanks be to)
you will go
