Ode to My Body

SCOTT PARSONS' 12TH GRADE CLASS

Bless the ear
a gateway for laughter
Bless the eyebrow
bushy with wisdom
Bless the foot
which gives equilibrium
to an unstable world
Bless the wrist
articulate as a spider
Bless the heart
how it beats even when broken
Bless the mouth
and its ocean of words
Bless the chest
the loudest drum of all
Bless the bellybutton
which is the scar of love.
