THEY WHO SANG THE SONG


They who sang the song loved the singer
Not his song, telling the story of eternity
Making fathers proud, mothers weep
As the music played on whispered by the wind
Endless with lilting serenade and pace
Joyous in depth of scale and gentle beat
Making trees bend and sway before the melody
Seas to churn, wave tossed giving homage
Nature knowing the sweetness of the singing
With Sun, Moon, and stars in chorus
Singing tribute to God's creation
And the sacrifice of his Son made for us
Who taught of truth and understanding
Preaching of a Universe of love supreme.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
