Paul F. Ernst

(Cincinnati, Ohio, USA)

From the book Life, Love, Wisdom


When the cornerstones of earth were put in place the
Perfect Nature placed a unique stone, upon the earth Jesus never walked upon the water Nor multiplied the loaves to feed a hungry throng The laws of heaven were not in his dominion Nor the wind that blew across the sea Miracles too were not critical to Jesus
Jesus, stealthily shook the world and moved it round To help us act out the purpose of our existence It was his ideals of Love that passed the tests of time
And moved our Life towards the balance it seeks On Calvary, Jesus Hope the fire of Love
Would rise Life into human love that would blossom,
Someday, into Wisdom Jesus taught nothing new or deep
It was a simple, basic lesson
"Love your neighbors, as you Love yourself"

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
