Returning With Thanks

Were there not ten

With my blessing

Leprous one moment, and then,

Sent for the priest’s

Absolution,

Clean and recovered again?

 

Was there but one

Back to thank me?

He, a Samaritan too.

Shameless he bows.

Adoration.

Here at the feet of a Jew.

 

Oh there’s much more

For the thankful.

Those who remember each grace.

They are made whole

From the inside.

They shall discover my face.
