A Meditation Upon Jeanne Ruid

the retirement of a mental health colleague

Jeannie, we hardly knew ye.
Now, upon the New Year,
We'll have to do without ye.
Focusing relentlessly on service
With dedicated selflessness,
We'll, in spirit, still have you with us.
Now that you're off scot free,
Having separation hilarity,
Amid your grins, ha has, tee hees,
Please say a prayer for us
And our anxieties.
Upon you we'll meditate.
Thus we'll have some serenity.
We'll be calmer, soon and late,
As we contemplate your Buddha's smile,
Its quiet modesty.
