Godfrey Speaks - Poem by Godfrey Morris

Godfrey speaks truth
of world's daily loss
dreaming desires hidden in souls
freed from the depths of sighs
rendered from the heart of minds
eluded dreams of pure mankind
yearning for a thought for share
seeking most soothing ears
promoting a verse to bear
earning grace's golden tear
at a lonesome heavy price
keeping life's true rejoice
surely now I speak

    grace's golden tear. My favorite line of the poem. And oh, how our grace in life is worth as much, or more, than the golden tear. Especially when we make a lasting impression. (Report) Reply
