Sister Carmen Bernos de Gasztold was a Benedictine nun and gifted writer. In her book entitled Prayers from the Ark, the French poet gave voice to God’s creatures who sailed with Noah.
During a season of summer reruns, I am sharing again a sampling of my favorite poems. Enjoy The Prayer of the Little Ducks.

Give us plenty of little slugs
and other luscious things to eat.
Protect all folk who quack
and everyone who knows how to swim!
