In Honor of the Olympics - Prayer of the Risk Taker

Woman performing a "swallow dive", 1937

Prayer of the Risk Taker

I believe as surely
as I dive
into the waters below,
You, O Lord,
Will grant me
The buoyancy
to emerge
from the depths
to dive again!
My body
shimmering, wet,
Thy risk taker
in mid air
You're there!
