Saint Ludwina, patron saint of skaters
Saint Lidwina, hear my prayer.
It's Sunday night, and Monday's there
just the other side of sleep -
the starting line of another week.
I spent the day in preparation
and making lists of veneration.
I've oiled the wheels and mapped the race.
Don't let me fall flat on my face!
And, Lidwina, keep my laces tight.
Give me balance, give me right
of way as I pick up speed;
I've never learned to stop, you see.
Lidwina is the patron saint of ice skaters and roller skaters.
