Thought

In monastic robes and cloak

Words to inspired he spoke

For those at distance who did plea

He raised a mound for them to see

White dove settled on the saint

Sign - with God to now acquaint


Simple austere his daily bread

No meat but leeks and herbs instead

Oxen yoked he’d not allow

His monks themselves drew the plough

Generations of Cymry him esteemed

And never in his name blasphemed


“Brothers, sisters in joy keep faith

Do the little things I do and saith

As for me I walk along that path

That saintly fathers trod in past “

Parting words for our pilgrim’s way

From David on Saint David’s day


Prayer

Lord of blessed simplicity teach me to offer the small and simple things as humble flower offerings at thy feet. Grant me the insight and compassion to feel even the smallest difficulties and sufferings of others. Fill my life with light to share with others.
