Ronald Chapman Poems
After The Rain
Inside the meaning of ourselves, the poets and songwriters look.
Just the thought of tears makes my spirit hurt!
Always looking, never seeing the words through the rain.
After the dogs of summer stop barking the dreamers breathe,
After the rain of the evening, the poets and songwriters learn.
In the stillness and cool-ness the dreamers rejoice!
All the ghosts have begun humming again.
Beside the river of tears, my mind thinks.
After the rain, sunny memories sing!
What Is Marriage?
Marriage is a Holy covenant,
Not a piece of paper handed to you by the state.
Warm, beautiful commitments,
With God and each other.
Love, love, and faith!
