Sonnet: The Righteous


The righteous need not fear a thing on earth;
Their war against evil is fought by God;
In all the crosses, life in time may bring,
The Maker stands by righteous flock as Lord!

The righteous are the sheep that Christ shepherds;
The Good Shepherd takes care of His own flock;
They do not mingle among alien herds;
They eat good grass without a single rock!

God loves the righteous immensely by heart;
They listen faithfully to His commands;
The Shepherd knows the meadow’s every part;
Lost ones are found and safe in Shepherd’s hands!

The righteous are the Shepherd’s precious wealth;
He monitors their movements and their health!

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
