Getting Through the Day

Getting Through the Day


“Courage,” says the bookshelf

Shouldering its heavy load of



“Courage,” says the rocking chair

Offering a pillow and a blanket


“Courage,” says the wood stove

Waiting patiently to be filled


“Courage,” caw the ravens, both

Upside down and right side up


“I hold you in my heart,” says

The window seat, looking outward


“I hear you breathing,” says the

Armchair, bearing its load

Without complaining


“Spirit of the wind, carry me home,”

Sings the woman on horseback


“Courage,” whispers Little Bear

Holding my hand
