White Witch Still wishing to be like to good witch that is white, In my own way trying to get things right, At times all may go sadly wrong, The devil seeming, on my tail, to belong, From all deadly sins we are barred, But keeping clear can be so hard, Easy, at times, with self to fail, No one said life would be an easy sail, Like the sea, forbidding and moody can be, Another time beauty in its magic to see, So I still carry on, doing my best, And with others around, I am well blessed, Coventry people so generous all the time, The prayers, the good, upon us all to shine, From the tops of our spires to the ground, We are, in our love and thinking, sound, As in all that has gone on before, To others we are willing to open our door.
