Old Solomon, he was a king

Who did possess most everything

He was the wisest of all men

None would e’er be alike again.

His instructions came from above

Conerning God and His great love

For forty years he ruled replete

His job, God’s Temple to complete.

This task achieved in seven years

And lauded by both prayer and tears

Oh sad end for King David’s son

He’d lost his way and was undone !

Across the meadows of the sky

The scattered clouds are drifting by

Like puffs of cotton hung in space

All seeming to be out of place

The clouds diminish one by one

Until the skies of day are done !

Oh gentle beast, I see you there

Alone close by your hidden lair

The winter’s been and is half gone

Tis soon the season will march on.

Those little ones who have survived

Must learn right now to keep alive

To run and hide and secret be

Escaping this  hostility.

Oh what a lesson life does teach

To all who would adulthood reach

In fact, we know the truth is cruel

This gift of life’s not meant for fools !

 

 

 

 

CLOSE TO MY HEART ( 2019 ) 2019/02/04

Of recent times I’ve been so ill

With lengthy days and endless nights

That brought my life and mind a chill

And filled my soul with countless frights.

Tis true I am far better now

But need to be secure and smart

I’ll have to figure out just how

To keep God’s Word close to my heart !

 

 

ARE YOU AS TRUE ? ( 2018 ) 2018/10/27

Oh Solomon, where is thy wisdom now

What confidence your heart and you allow

What kindness does it take for you to live

With all that wisdom that is yours to give ?

Oh foolishness beyond your every dream

Are you as true or only that you seem ?

 

OUR LAST SIGHT ( 2018 ) 2018/08/02

In the quiet of the evening

As shades of night begin to fall

And the time of our believing

Gently whispers goodnight to all,

Grasp the moment and remember

The days of old we used to know

Be it May or late December

In sunshine, rain or early snow,

Where we have learned to close our eyes

Each waiting the advent of light

With no assurance of surprise

This is no longer our last sight !

 

 

INFALLIBLE ( 2017 ) 2017/10/28

I sight the sunrise o’er the hill

It’s vision sends my heart a thrill

How wonderful it is to see

A world wrapt in God’s symmetry.

I hear the rustle of the leaves

They whisper in the morning breeze

What is it they all preach to me

Regarding God’s infinity ?

I feel the impact of His power

Increasing with each passing hour

The mark He leaves, indelible

Because He is infallible !
