Lawrence of the Resurrection

Saint Lawrence Of The Resurrection
Calm rules the kitchen, yet friars in the hall
cry ‘Past time for supper! That lummox has gall!’
The cook is a good man with spoon, platter, plate.
He will not be rushed for the steam and the heat.
      Though he is a simple man, he always seems to know
            that as it is above, so below.
He hums to his Christ all the hymns he has known
while he picks the fruits he has lovingly grown.
He cares not for chapel bent down on his knees.
He shuns waste of time with vain words and decrees.
      Though he is a simple man, he always seems to know
            that as it is above, so below.
He washes the dishes and praises his Lord.
He fights the good fight with his knife as his sword.
His faith, hopes, and love salts and peppers the food.
He does everything for the glory of God.
      Though he is a simple man, he always seems to know
            that as it is above, so below.
