"Sometimes our light goes out but is
blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks
to those who have rekindled this light."

Teach your children poetry;
it opens the mind,
lends grace to wisdom
and makes the heroic virtues hereditary.
~ Sir Walter Scott ~

God Moves The Pen

With God's help I will try to write
the dear things of the heart
in effort to give those perplexed
a new and stronger start
He moves the pen when I compose
a verse on faith and hope
I pray that those who chance to read
are washed with healing soap
when I write tender lines of love
God tells me what to say
in order to cement the bonds
and show the righteous way
perhaps you think what I've declared
is just a lofty dream
and that I strive to make this life
a peaceful happy stream
this may be true, but somehow I
believe God moves the pen
for how else could a man like me
send beauty from his den.

~Here And Gone~

Short the seconds linger when
we wish they'd never part
quickly go the hours that
are precious to each heart
so it is with days and weeks
they fade like fleeting dreams
staying but a moment to
fit in with all our schemes
suddenly old months are gone
to make way for the new
and as time runs on its race
it changes me and you
then before we turn about
the years have passed us by
so it is with life itself
it's but a breath and sigh.

~ Ben Burroughs ~
