Miracle of the Geese

The Catholic school children gather
obedient to the bell, silent, waiting
for morning prayers 
to begin another day,

when geese 
race suddenly above
tight formation crossing the 
playground, stroking high air, shattering 
our discipline with lusty 
call, savage 

And the children, 
raising their arms to heaven, 
shout in praise 
at the wonder and glory, 
the holy presence, 
 the miracle of the geese!
