Sanctus Est

“Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God.” - G.W. Carver

Poetry corner!

Hi! Well I thought I would share my
recent poems. There are 4 here so happy
reading! The first two are a pair.
If you can, let me know what you think
and take your time.

Morning Star (1/06/06)

Her eyes glimmer with hope,
Her sweetness reveals a light,
Her heart is filled with love
And her wisdom shines pure light.

O mysterious beauty,
O beautiful mystery,
The sun and moon adornes
Thou House of gold and roses

The Sun

His eyes shine with fire,
His heart is ever expanding,
His good judgement is fair,
He loves beyond understanding.

O wonderful mystery,
O mysterious wonder,
You are pure majesty,
Your grace is in me forever

I hope to love

I wish to love thee
Like the others before me.
I wish to kiss thee
Like the heavenly light.

But alas! I have not the strenghth,
I have not te means to guideth
Only you can provideth
Only your grace and love can.

An ancient home (22/07/06)

Remnants of a fire roasting...
The flames skip in the dead of night,
The daubed wattle hides the lights of the sky,
Only seen through small gaps, peek a boo.

Laughter and songs ring in the air,
The shields and swords reflect those times -
Hung in glory,
A glory of a people.
Lives held precious,
Times held dear.

The glitter of the torques and daily pans,
The glitter in the eyes shared young and old
For a time.

Long ago people lived
To the crackling sound of fire and life.

A home.
