A love in verse

Sonnet: I Will Remember You

Performed by

I will remember you, you orange sky

West from the window of the train I watch

Amazed that in this latter age the touch

Of sun to earth unheeded passes by.

As we all sit moronic reading trash

A steeple silhouetted stark against

Magnificence stabs upward. Glory paints. 

Why do we scorn a scene which in a flash

Passes in time and space and then is lost? 

I’d sat in half despair until I saw

This glory, lifting me in joy and awe,

And said, the boundary to hope is crossed

And when I later saw your lovely face

It was the same reminder of God’s grace. 


Thanks to God

With Allie singing round the place

Gracing the stairs as I say my prayers

Letting the sun start from her face...

Day’s Reprieve

The garden settles in for the evening

The sun’s gone down behind the trees

The still light sky won't let the night bring...
