Treasure Island

Seeing Through A Glass Darkly


To continue forever in time and space,
This we cannot imagine or know.
For only briefly are we here in this place
Before we find that its time to go.
Of what we never can conceive
Help us Lord to just believe.

How vast are the heavens when compared to me
But even lilies you don’t forget.
Has only Earth got life in this galaxy?
Why would you make a barren planet?
If doubts come and calm does leave
Help us Lord to just believe.

How incredibly varied is life on Earth
Whether on land, in sea or in sky
Reptiles and birds lay eggs, animals give birth.
None are immortal and all must die.
Young arrive but old must leave.
What sense if we don’t believe?

Why should some people suffer in pain through life?
And why should some die before they’re old
With illness and disease, or in wars or strife?
It seems unjust, has His love grown cold?
Give Job’s faith to those who grieve.
Like him Lord we do believe.

We rush around madly at work or cleaning
Our lives so full with the present tense.
Can advance in science give our lives meaning?
Will we improve in wealth or in sense?
All things – we cannot achieve,
Only God can we believe!

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
