A love in verse

Hope +

Performed by

Even the dull eternal afternoon 

Lit dustily by sun on the Eastern side

Our dear old Mafeking gleams with hope.

What’s “hope plus”? Strong faith surely, not

Certainty none can have that, but sun

Strengthening its power on blue and golden doors

Brings me in heart so close to faith’s own heart:

The Father sees us, hears us; loving each other 

Opens the path by which His love comes to us. 


Always and Everywhere

Let me be where your lovely feet are 

On treads of stairs where you pass I’ll be

Among grass blades...

Sonnet: That Evil Elf

Frustration dogs my days. There’s not one thing

That I would do that does not stand in doubt.

As if some grinning demon cast a ring...
