The Pantomimer’s Pulpit 

by Lawrence J. J.  Leonard,  2003

When your worries make you feel dark,
and thoughts give not a moment’s happiness,
send them away on a breeze. 
Gain ground in the green gap through transformation.

By renewing your mind
each audience will see clearly what we have dubbed
“merry mighty masteries.”   

So, don’t chide or ape or mock anyone else.
Heaven designed sound judgment for quiet action,
so when they are merged,
they shape a shrewd souvenir. 

As with all performing families,
no one functions separately here. 

Whether near or far, let’s pray for each other’s successes,
encourage one another in sparse times,
and conduct flexion feats of force for the distressed.  

There may be sad hearts that can be converted.
We should toil to turn totally tense feelings with acts,
as those skilled at this quiet cause
contract the best!   

Heed the mummers whose mannerisms are bold!
Praiseworthy disciples silently spin
an opus that can’t be spoken.
