Kneecaps and Marble

[Nothing groundbreaking, I know, but it settled into my head and wouldn’t leave until I typed it out. It’s not based on a true event, in case you were wondering.]

Kneecaps and Marble
Kenneth Burchfiel

Thank you, Father, for this rain.
My child loved it so.
I hope that you will take him, Lord,
Where all good children go.
And Father, please, bless all of those
Who never got to grow.
