I Believe In Miracles.


I believe in Miracles - I've seen the risng Sun
I believe in Miracles - I've seen the cheetah run.
I believe in Miracles - I've seen my baby born
I believe in Miracles - I've glimpst the unicorn.
I believe in Miracles - Man walked on the Moon
I believe in Miracles - They're every day in June.
I believe in Miracles - I've seen a junkie cured
I believe in Miracles - A winos been restored
I believe in Miracles - My firends survive car crashes
I believe in Miracles - When England won the ashes!
I believe in Miracles - We trashed the Berlin Wall
I believe in Miracles - We stood and watched it fall.
I believe in Miracles - The harvest grain is stored
I believe in Miracles - When David Beckham scored!
I believe in Miracles - In every path I've trod
I believe in Miracles - 'Cos I believe in GOD!

    Thanks to your incentive, I have written a poem, PraiseSong, in a similar vein and in a similar form. Very many thanks for your warm encouragement, John! (Report) Reply

    john, I love this.... miracles.... we see them in everyday life. Yet, we do not always appreciate or even acknowledge them.

    What a wonderful way to praise to God, and the rest of us to be thankful and to praise our Lord.

    Thank you! Love it!

    10 and I am posting this on my favs. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
