“Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity”⠀

Such majesty, I cannot grasp⠀
I am limited, uncomprehending.⠀
What do I have to offer?⠀
What coin?⠀
What song?⠀
What praise?⠀
On the paten, I gift my nothingness⠀
weakness, rags.⠀

But deep in my pocket lies precious gems.⠀
I offer with Mary,⠀
the Saints,⠀
Choirs of Angels.⠀

What riches,⠀
what gift!⠀
I am a pauper no longer.
