dropped summer days

How gauche is it to drop novenas in the middle?
So they sag like a scarf in which you missed a stitch?
To mean to make it but to miss a day?
Asking for a friend (whom I said I'd pray for).

To err is human,
so which is more divine:

To keep on starting over,
like a shy singer at audition?

Or to forge right through—
the show must continue—
trusting dropped notes
can turn to graced ones, too.
