Holy Thursday (II)

Standard

I wash their little feet
in a simple white tub
where the water is warm
and they want to stay forever.

Lavender and frankincense
rise with the steam
where love is taught
and patience comes with service.

The towel is soft,
the lotion soothes,
and now their eyes
shine with stars,

unbroken light from
the ages, how it shines
brilliant in my eyes,
washing away all our mistakes.
