April 17th.

The other day I posted a “Taxpayer’s Prayer”, which I found in the Christian Science Monitor, written by Russell Baker.  Apparently it came through so small that it was unreadable, so I’ll try again.  I thought it amusing.

O Mighty Internal Revenue, who turneth the labor of man to ashes, we thank thee for the multitude of thy forms which thou

hast set before us and for the infinite confusion of thy commandments, which muliplieth the fortunes of lawyer and accountant

alike.

Here’s today’s poem:

 

              LARA

      Zhivago’s Love

 

She was a child- –at first,

not innocent, but trusting.

Her world was one of beauty until

it was scarred by the ugliness of killing and intrigue.

Mere protests led to violence;

the man she loved was swallowed up by war.

 

But sometimes in the midst of strife there can be found

a haven of peace, arranged by love.

War cannot kill love, for the strength of a heart’s devotion

survives when all else seems lost.
