    Hello!

    I enjoy your website very much. I wanted to notify you of an omission in the poem MY GOD, I THANK THEE THOU HAST MADE. The 4th line in the 3rd section should read That thorns remain If you read the poem, it is obvious that there is no proper rhyme in this section without this phrase. Thank you, Skip Morgan

Or place my hand in thine,

A possible future shine,
Wherein thy life could henceforth breathe,
Untouch’d, unshar’d by mine?
If so, at any pain ...
