What is Mercy

Poem By: Lynda Baker

Mercy is a hot cup of java IMG_5349

on a cold winter’s day

And toast fresh from the toaster.

Mercy is a place to get clean clothes

And a bird bath.

Mercy is hot soup and sandwiches.

Mercy is all of these,

But it’s also one of the strongest words in the English language—

It means love.

Above everything else, Mercy is love.
