keepin’ that poetry coming…

William Blake’s “The Lamb” seemed the right poem to pick in honor of Easter and April’s National Poetry Month. Enjoy!

THE LAMB

Little Lamb, who made thee?

Dost thou know who made thee?

Gave thee life, and bid thee feed,

By the stream and o’er the mead;

Gave thee clothing of delight,

Softest clothing, woolly, bright;

Gave thee such a tender voice,

Making all the vales rejoice?

Little Lamb, who made thee?

Does thou know who made thee?

Little Lamb, I’ll tell thee,

Little Lamb, I’ll tell thee:

He is called by thy name,

For He calls Himself a Lamb.

He is meek, and He is mild;

He became a little child.

I a child, and thou a lamb,

We are called by His name.

Little Lamb, God bless thee!

Little Lamb, God bless thee!

Easter & National Poetry Month are arriving soon…

And because of that ~ I thought I’d share this 17th century poem titled The Call

My blood so red

For thee was  shed,

Come home again ,come home again:

My own sweetheart, come home again!

You’ve gone astray

Out of your way,

Come home again, come home again!

Offense

In these days in which we are living ~ more than ever before ~ Satan is bringing about strife and offense. We need to get to the point where we can trust God to deal with our difficult situations. And our difficult people! Not easy, I know. The Bible says:  ‘Don’t be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.’  We don’t need to vindicate ourselves. Give it to God instead. He’ll take care of it in His time and in His way.

Keeping those poems coming…

Harlem (A Dream Deferred)  Langston Hughes

What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up

like a raisin in the sun?

Or fester like a sore –

And then run?

Does it stink like rotten meat?

Or crust and sugar over-

like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags

like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

You ever notice how the world just loves to put lables on folks? You are or you have:  Alcoholic. Gay. Wife-beater. Bipolar. Manic Depressive. Fibromyalgia. Pervert. Cancer.

Hi. I’m George and I’m an alcoholic. Hi. I’m Cindy and I have fibromyalgia.

Why let the devil TELL us what we are or aren’t. How about: Hi. I’m Beverly and I’m a child of the living God. I struggle with….

See the difference. You don’t have to become what you struggle with. Focus on WHO you are. A child of God. If you’re born-again, you belong to Jesus. The ailments you struggle with are not you! Shake off those labels!

Jesus died to set us FREE!!!

Poetry…poetry…poetry…poetry…poetry…poetry

Dust of Snow, by Robert Frost

The way a crow

Shook down on me

The dust of snow

From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart

A change of mood

And saved some part

Of a day I had rued.

(In honor of April’s National Poetry month ~ I will be posting misc. poetry from time to time. I just can’t help it, ’cause I love poetry!)
