A THANK YOU POEM TO MARK DEACON JOHN'S RETIREMENT

Deacon JOhn

 

DEAR JOHN

 

"Fear not."

As one angelic proclamation

Declared in the mystic annals

Of our beginnings.

This missive comes not from above,

Nor has its roots

In the dreaded declaration

Of a depressingly ensuing diatribe.

 COPIOSA APUD EUM REDEMPTIO

Apologies for Poetic Muse

Who's still inclined to Covid Snooze!

Nonetheless, we wish for you

A Day of Joy, "A Confreres' Do",

Memories, laughter, celebratory drink

(Observed within The Rule - we think!).

But, most of all, recall of Special Day,

When first shone forth incipient ray,

Which changed your life, and ours as well,

With dreams, triumphs and tales to tell.

Renaissance Man - so many parts -

We hold you close within our hearts,

Dear Father Tim!
