A Higher Power Watches


A Higher Power Watches
Who deliberately causes
The innocent to flout
The sweet to become bitter
The peaceful to become upset.

A Higher Power Watches
People who provoke
The good to do evil.
To speak unkind
To deceive to live unclean.

A Higher Power Watches
How the family behaves
How friends are engaged
Or how who ever interrupts
Or encourages a Life.

A Higher Power Watches
Consciously every move.
Inspirations and righteousness
Cleanliness and courage
Ameliorations and aspirations.

A Higher Power Watches
What every insight sees.
Every intellectual knowing
Every attitude existing
What life's breath blows.

A Higher Power Watches
Every humilation
Every honesty and sincerity
Every forgiveness
And every loving thought.

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
