A Pilgrim's Prayer

 
T hat hearth and home may
H int of heaven and
A utumn's consummation
N ourish the latent seed of Spring,
K indling a vision of that
S weeter country where
G ermination sinks deeper root and
I ndicates a perennial harvest our
V agrant span is blind to, dead to,
I mparting
N otions of perpetual
G rowth and God.

When working with children years ago, I created many acrostics. Most had the keyword somewhere down the middle of the series of words that was the list of answers to given clues and required a little searching. It always surprised me how immensely popular these were, especially since I found them quite easy to construct. The thing is, there is resolution and satisfaction. So much of that, especially nowadays, is lacking. There is little resolution to our striving and our problems.
