    Dear Adeline,

    Thank you for all your uniquely thoughtful and kind comments on my poems today. I am a contrary person. If someone says Read in the imperative anything I automatically don't want to do this. I am worse in this way since I retired. But your name is Adeline the same as my maternal great grandmother and amazingly your last name is the maiden name of my paternal grandmother so I have to pay attention. Still, I am contrary, so instead of reading the poems you suggested I meandered over to your poetry well kept and well ordered neighborhood with the vivid flowers and the well ordered (deep green?) elegant fences and read this poem. And wanted to cry because it shows a depth of feeling toward God I cannot help but honor and speaks even of honor itself a word you almost never hear anymore, ANYWHERE. I love this poem. And I intend to read all your poems only, contrary wise, forgive me, when you are least expecting it so it will I hope be a felicitous surprise. I am glad you are a teacher of poetry. You actually know what it is. I have a feeling all your poems are beautiful, beauty in the sense of image and meaning perfectly ordered. Have a wonderful day and thank you again.

    I like how exactly you mention the main things to show the nonsense of not believing in God. Thank you!

    Would be a fake-a senseless fraud;
    Each for himself alone would stand-
    No honor-if there be no God. (Report) Reply

    If there be no God, man would have been king. I think I got the message in your comment now. It is only God who could determine future and the standard of my works. I agreed with you. Great work (Report) Reply

    Adeline, I confess your poetry reminds me somewhat of Ella Wheeler Wilcox, also a magnificent writer. (Report) Reply

    I am so much with you on this, Adeline.
    If there 'd be no God, atomic war would have long terminated our existence.
    There is so much violence and negativity on TV,
    but I notice in the heart of women and men,
    a new kindness is blooming, all around the world. (Report) Reply

    Adeline. Thanks for posting, If There Be No God. The use of two entities, the universe and Man, is very effective.
    After all, The heavens declare the glory of God....; and man is made in God's image. What a clever presentation in so few words! I love it! GBU. Curtis. (Report) Reply
