June Exams

On my back in the high grass of the hayfield

hilroys and text books at rest

I envy the flock of clouds chasing through the sky,

the red wing black birds flitting noisily in the budding cat-tails,

and ignore the voice in the distance calling

“Take out the potato peels.”


Frank Obrigewitsch, SJ, is pastor of St. Ignatius parish in Winnipeg.
