Round Robin from the Vicar

Lily’s trips abroad
Henry’s job in The States
baby photos —

oh.  There’s your wife.
The same now-you-listen-to-me expression.
She’s ‘helping’ with the choir.

It’s you I want to hear about.
How you stayed with her,
why you became a priest.

Do you remember the day
your eyes softened
and you held me close?
