and now it is the time

if when the sun at last warms the metal chair
and you can tough the walls without a shiver
your body rejects all pain and does not quiver
in grief or anguish now what seems most fair
is that you've come to understand and care
and know that you can at all times deliver
the warmth that's needed before that last river
you'll have some satisfaction for your share
now for the light to make us all feel blessed
by joyous day to walk without a qualm
would be enough to make the sad rejoice
this has been real it has not been a test
in deepest winter you have brought true balm
the answers were all given in good voice
