Treasure Island

Roxanne Dubarry

(October 4,1954 / Seattle, Washington)

David's Honor


You're my fortress;
You're my strength.
You're my deliever;
You're my redeemer.

I will never fall, nor
Faulter. You are the
Rock upon which I
Place my stand.

Yes, you will protect,
Preserve, and defend me.
You will deliever me from
My trials and tribulations.

You're so wonderful; so
Grand. My feet need
Never lay in sinking
Sand.

Love in Christ Jesus!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I took words from David's psalms, and composed one of my own.
I frequently took words and phrases from the Bible to help lead, and guide me on my own poetic journey. Maybe you would like to come along?

Wasn't King David really having a very hard time? Maybe you could find the comfort you need in the books of Psalms, and Proverbs.

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
