Treasure Island

Nicanor P. Tiosen

Keep Your Faith Aglow!

Waking up early one morning
I gazed toward the eastern sky;
Framed against a golden canvass
are silhouettes of birds in flight.

They're out to forage, I muttered -
in fields they have not sown;
Frolicking as they flutter, while
pecking seeds they haven't grown.

Beneath the gilded canopy,
spreads of carpet, velvety green -
where white-clad lilies grow and glow
and dewdrops cast a silvery sheen.

Ah! But man ought first to seek
God's kingdom and His righteousness;
Then toiling to the heart's content,
the Lord shall provide the rest.

If God so feeds the fowls on high
and clothes the lilies, too;
Then would He care for you indeed,
if you shall keep your faith aglow!

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
