 A Poem on Tom's First Anniversary, by Padraig J. Daly O.S.A.
 Lured by a light
 Discerned distantly.
 He trekked across the rolling ocean.
 It might have been
 The random glitter of a fish
 That drew him.
 Phosphorescence of plankton
 Or a far planet
 Reflected on the water.
 The seas grew rough
 As he travelled:
 Sky and ocean together turned grey:
 But he kept faith still
 With that single silver gleam.
