Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
Ordination

Wow! Can you imagine graduation day
just like that! Flames of the Spirit
piercing you, giving you power, authority
Tongues of flames giving tongues to speak
to the people around the world
such an ordination ceremony
was the Pentecost, when the disciples
became the apostles, the teachers,
when the meek gained their mettle
and preachers were born
