    conference with Gordon B. Hinckley

    apprehensively hushed

    everyone sits.

    ours is the eager silence

    of expectancy

    and i imbibe freely

    of the Spirit

    that is passed around.

    then

    the moment comes

    and in enters the man.

    a man with understanding in his eyes

    power in his voice

    compassion in his face

    and our quiet changes

    to the grateful stillness

    of fulfillment.
