From the January 1992 issue of The Christian Science Journal

is like
a game of catch—
the easy back-and-forth
of an unscored ball.
No points counted.
No cups / medals won.

Even God
who is wondrous Love, Himself
giver of all love,
receives our love in
praise / obedience / thanksgiving.

And every father / mother
catching ball from
small beloved child
knows this is
the only way child
can be free to
receive again.

Love returned with love
is quite enough
to keep the game going.
