    “Patchwork,” Ensign, Sept. 1985, 71

    Patchwork

    Pieces

    colored dark and light—

    Some cut from Joy.

    Some torn from Night.

    Bright blue calico dreams

    right beside

    the deep perplexing plaids.

    But there is order

    in the seams,

    in the pattern

    hidden there.

    I’ve learned

    a lot from contrast

    when lost

    within the square.
