AN UPLIFT OFFERING, FINALLY. The poetic inspiration returns, if but in small measure. I’ve gone weeks, yeah, the count may be in the months, without writing poetry. Perhaps this season we can find more inspiration, if not time.
WEIGHT BEHIND THE WORDS
Speak of faith, forgiveness, hope and peace,
Of love and joy, of mercy’s sure increase;
Throw weight behind the words, take wing to heights
That rise above mere woulds and coulds and mights,
To prize one’s duty more than public rights.
From evil bring forth good, from doubting, trust;
Let faith endure beyond the mortal dust.
