When I was a boy …

When I was a boy at the Loreto
school, the children said: there
is a grotto in the gully but you
can get lost in there and never
come out. And in Santa Fe they
say there is a spiral staircase
at “Loretto” there which rises
heavenward miraculously.
Stories for nuns and boys not
men today; but there is a boy
who never did come out I say
and climbs to Heaven’s joy.
