And I see you where you stand
With you life held in your hand
As a rosary of days
And your thoughts in calm arrays,
And your innocent prayers are told
On your rosary of days.
And the young days and the old
With their quiet prayers did meet
When the chaplet was complete.
Alice Meynell: Soeur Monique:
a Rondeau by Couperin. (19th century)
