Dear Poverello

Dear Poverello,
who am I
that you in Love
would greet me

with arms
and twinkling eye
in Perfect Joy to meet me

who am I
to look upon
your lovely
lowly face

as warmly you
bid me
enter through
this absolute embrace

I am happy to
leave all behind
and step
inside your door

who am I
Dear Poverello
that you
invite me to be poor?
