    today there was not enough light

    to light the morning sky
    before I got to work

    to help my student see
    the error of his ways

    to last till the end of the afternoon
    for me to get home before dark

    to burn away the clouds
    of grief that cover our house

    so we sat together on the couch
    surrounded by schnauzers

    and watched the little tree lights
    do their best to shine
