Sonnet: The Tempter Always Tempts All Men


When Adam, Eve, first parents did not heed
To God’s Command to not ingest one fruit,
At that instance was sown in man, the seed
Of sin, and temptations galore took root!

The Tempter knows the heart of man is weak;
His body loves to do all earthly things;
In battered life, his mind and heart grow meek;
He opens them to devil, who woe brings!

Our Savior Lord Christ Jesus, Son of God,
Was born on earth and died upon the cross,
To spare all sinners punishments –just rod,
Through resurrection and life-blood loss!

But man can overcome each temptation
Like Christ, avoiding hell’s fire-damnation!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
