    A beautiful poem and the meanings are also praiseworthy. The events of life and family and god's grace all are inter connected and made it into a meaningful poem. I liked it. (Report) Reply

    The poem has good solid quatrains, but uses mannerisms like morn and Tis that are a pseudo-poetical style. If you
    read modern poetry from Burnside or Hughes or Heaney you won`t find this A good poem, but the reader notices it is a first one. (Report) Reply

    A good beginning. The very first stanza is the best. Others don't quite live up to that. When you write a poem, listen to yourself. You should sound (a) as you do when you talk naturally, not put-on and, yet, at the same time, (b) have a slightly heightened tone in your words. Stanza #1 does exactly that; each of the others has just a bit of a false sound. Listen for it. Keep working on it. Sometimes you have to write it over and over again. That's OK. I'll be looking for more from you. (Report) Reply

    If all our fleeting moments could be
    As beautiful as such an early morn
    What a life would it then be
    Singing praises of the Lord! (Report) Reply

    great poem, nothing like the first few hours of the day when the world is stirring to life and new promises and challenges, a time to take a deep breathand enjoy. (Report) Reply

    That still in the early, And the middle of morn. Forget for one moment, Life's trials and its scorn.
    Morning shall soon pass, As I linger and yearn.Praying my God of Thee, For this moment's return.
    Those two stanzas moved me the most because they are true. Everyonce in a while I get in these happy moods where I am worry-free. A moment of temporary joy that just never seems to hang around long enough. (Report) Reply
