    God as the ultimate Poet, imagining/seeding all creation as if always in front of a blank sheet? (Report)Reply

    Gorgeous words that just call to the reader to come and wallow in them, to inhale them with gratitude. He was a master poet, his poetry pieces of magnificence. (Report)Reply

    This poem has special meaning to me! It is a beautiful poem. With what I have been thru this poem meant the world to me. How it came about is a long story! I guess some would say I'm blessed some would say I'm dammed it a matter of opinion I guess. If it even matters anymore! (Report)Reply

    Do you know, there is so much still to learn
    So much still to understand?
    So much knowledge still to earn,
    So many places still to stand.
    Does this one have anything to do with soul?
    You may be Captain of your soul
    But still the slave of your heart
