Accomplishment enough

This has been a summer of arriving late to church on a fairly regular basis.  We usually arrive before the Gospel, which I read somewhere makes the service count.  Of course this means we sit in the back under the choir loft.  Today we actually arrived in time to hear the opening sentence before taking our seat.  

We arrived in time
To hear the opening sentence
From the back;
Slipped in the pew
Second from the front
Before the procession
was halfway down the aisle.
Sometimes such things
Count as accomplishment enough
On a chilly July day:
Three people out the door
In enough time
To hear the opening sentence.
