Rope by Timothy Ward Ingersoll


Ropes
“Blest be the ties that bind”
but what’s to bless?


Rough ropes burn hands
That tightly grip
With good intent
But cannot hold


weak knots bind tight
And pull us under
Where only blade
Can life restore


But bonds of beauty
Hold and free


As need and cause demand
A life is saved then saved again


By ties that bless
