A very short poem

A very short poem today because I have been working hard and am inclined to settle into a comfy chair with a novel I am anxious to finish. This is the only writing I have ever read with the same verb repeated three times in a row. It makes one read it slowly and think rather hard.

It is called Prayer, by Galway Kennell

Whatever happens. Whatever

what is is is what

I want. Only that. But that.

Makes quite an impression on me when he uses three verbs in a row -- quite an emphasis. -- barbara
