With the whim of a little girls
thought of God and angels
I entered, with anticipation
of things not known.

The postulants brown leatherish stockings
looking uncomfortable
and formidable, gave me pause.

With a heavenly choir of novices
singing their nightly office
soothed a little girl
at ten o'clock, into saying
'I'm safe'.
