Orisons for Our Front-line Workers

By Jeannie E. Roberts

Orisons for Our Front-Line Workers



when days become months
breathe fear and unease / blur amid virus
betray basic needs

pledge prayers of resilience / vitality / rest
repeat orisons / orisons / orisons
that bless


when days bestir doubt
befuddle belief / benumb gumption
bemire in grief

send grace to our nurses
true messengers of light / our doctors
heroes / warriors / knights


when days bewail loss
bemoan death and disease
befall illness / infection / befog inner peace

pledge prayers of resilience / vitality / rest
repeat orisons / orisons / orisons
that bless
