Best Poem of Sylvia Frances Chan

Inspired By The Lord....

Inspired by The Lord
(Psalm 133: 3)

How pleasant to live in harmony

It feels like the soft breeze upon your brittle cheeks
and the ointment on the head,
caressing down upon the gown,
as the Lord hath shown
over the part of her slender arms
as love just blowing discerning in
and she takes that lovingly
as her blessings fill each looming day

and the gaiety in the hay
oh, cometh what may, cometh what may
each divine day

It is like the dew of Hermon falling on the mountains of Zion
God bestowed upon us ever on and on

Oh, ...

Read the full of Inspired By The Lord....
