christmas with Josep Maria
hank

Josep Maria
 1
carries implications
 2
back to a manger
 3
a hospital bed
 4
 
 
labouring beneath
 5
a reindeer blanket
 6
you have reached your beginning and your end
 7
once a prancer
 8
a donder of vixen grand daughters
 9
parading down streets of spain
 10
 
 
and right to the threshold
 11
always a wise man
 12
labouring beneath history
 13
bringing gifts for 96 years
 14
 
 
Josep Maria
 15
carries implications
 16
back to a manger
 17
and i am there
 18
and though i never knew you
 19
i thank you
 20
for bringing me near your tranquil end
 21
a socratic end for all men to envy
 22
 
 
Josep Maria
 23
carries implications
 24
back to a manger
 25
a final resting place
 26
on christmas eve
 27
and like king david
 28
life of virtue and vice
 29
even in absence
 30
will command christmas day
 31

really nicely done. my only comment is i don't think you need the final line - 32. I think 31 is better ending.

footnote is very good , just get rid of the last line.
