Andrew Phillips


To My Advocator


Thanks for standing
On my behalf,

Considering once
My crippled soul
Sat strapped down
To a wheelchair.

But sense the advocation,
Like on a Benny Hinn program,
I run.

I run and I run
Till I can thank you
Face to glorious face
For giving
(not a crutch) ,

A light
To run to.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
