A Cross


A cross is just wood;
It had no real meaning till the day a prefect man
Was nailed to one.
A cross is now the symbol of real love;
It shows how much one is willing to do for others,
So they would not have too.
A cross is the way we see the redemption of the soul,
For Christ put his own life to death on
The third day rose from the grave.
A cross is all we need to see,
To know that one day we too will go
Home to be with The Father in heaven.

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
