Child of God


I’ve seen your glorious exposure
The light glistening from, On High
Your over powering enlightenment
Fate turning truth outside the world known lie
I hear the raging far distance thunder
I feel the fierce wind, I see its stormed sky
The gentle love of your kindness
The calm wink and sure of your eye
To know you is my ultimate greatness
My mind sight is surely blind
Your grace is giving for enjoyment
Patience to aid those, not so high
To be like you is my endeavor
You’re blooming spring and cold inside
To say, to me a name
All others, I don’t hear so high

Poet's Notes about The Poem

My respects to my brother, who is my Lord, my inner desire. I guess one could call it worship. But this is done in the closet. I call this truth.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
