Wallace Dean LaBenne

Afflatus

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






The well deserved afflatus
gives flower to the soul.
The well deserved hiatus gives power to the goal.

The well deserved beatitude
gives pleasure to the soul.
The well deserved gratitude gives measure to the goal.

The well deserved deference
gives wonder to the soul.
The well deserved preference gives thunder to the goal.

The well deserved thesauri
gives story to the soul.
The well deserved satori gives glory to the goal.

The well deserved accolade
gives medal to the soul.
The well deserved serenade gives treadle to the goal.

The well deserved eulogy
gives luster to the soul.
The well deserved jubilee gives muster to the goal.
