St. Augustine of Hippo Comments

    Saint Augustine, Father, Bishop, man, pray for us all, All; pray for that platonic cubist Bride o new Jerusalem, Apostle Pearl spheres at Her Gates; pray party time in Heaven oscillates with double-sung prayers and prates; pray small earthen talk evaporates in Yahwehan Ecstasy; pray arch o'er Angel flight formations wing waggle, sparkle, praise holy sees in holy bees; pray sing Alleluias, Hosannas reverberant to Earths; pray with thy mother Monica, thy Mother Mary, and my mother Margaret; pray for peace and not for war or ware; pray for contemplation's lights, rights, justice and freedoms every where, for every one, for ever, Amen
