Psalter


Take me not out of my way
Allow me to love and touch you this very day.
That our goodness is not separate nor unique
But that you may always find me when you seek.

That I will be gentle and soft as the tides roll in
To take you with me on the journey of no sin.
May we have a portion of each day to love one another
That we will share our talk and feelings as those of a lover.

Our moments to be tender and gentle as in the holy grail
A time to sleep and a time to hoist; the billowing sail.
That when we become weak and lose our strength to keep
May our coming together never cause the other to weep.

To complete our day and have some fun
A swim in the ocean under a summer sun.
Tho I ask for much I ask from thee
As my teacher, my lover; my vision to see.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
