skitting, scudding wispiest fleece,
breezy morning's malingering guest,
project the congregant increase,
thronging pews excessively blessed.
silently clanging dinning bell
services to start on the hour,
calling the supplicants, foretell
a time certain, mortals cower.
angry scowls, furiously flying
egregious, determined abhorrence,
is afternoon darkness supplying
messages delivered in torrents.
disgorged, their silent dispersal
cleanses, reinvigorates the day
musing at a matinee's rehearsal
of Destiny's encyclical display.
