Spring

When the grip of winter yields And the days of spring abide, Rebirth will color fields; As life on earth revives. When springtime finally comes And winter’s run its course, Rebirth is in the sun, When it rises in it’s force. For some the winters will endure, They linger on as one December. Their faith becomes unsure And a ‘hope’ they can’t remember. Know the love of God will rise And spring in you will bloom. God will not despise…

Mothers Are Special

Mothers have a special spot in a son or daughters heart. This special place is like a secret vault; no thief can find, or tear apart, Only love and beautiful memories are allowed in this special place, the memories of all the hugs and kisses, and their loving mothers face. When God created woman, birth was intended to be severe, to create a bond between mother and child, that remains down through the years. In God’s infinite wisdom, along with…

Upon A Lonely Tree

The sound of crying fills my ears I strain to listen, try to hear. The sound I hear is a mother crying, While her son was dying, Upon a lonely tree. He died for you and me you see, He died to set us free. So the lost could find their way again. So the bound could break their chains of sin, As his hands were pierced, they mourned. On his head was a crown of thorns. His back was…

St. Patrick’s Day Poem

Marauding raiders from Ireland captured Patrick in Britain at age sixteen at his parents’ estate, up ’til that time in Patrick’s life, things were just great. He was taken to Ireland and sold to the highest bidder into slavery; a boy on his own was left in the wilderness to tend sheep, with nothing more than his bravery. Patrick survived for six years tending the sheep, continually praying and developing his relationship with God, and even praying in his sleep….

God Listens with a Different Ear

God listens with a different ear; What is said He doesn’t hear; He hears the broken heart’s lament, Listens for the good intent. Tone deaf singers who would sing, Voices off-key, wavering, Do their best to give God praise God hears in many ways. Mistakes and glitches in the chorus Are depressing music for us, but It doesn’t matter what we hear; God listens with a different ear. in grateful prayer Return to our poetry section at: Christian Poets Pen…

Soldier’s Night Before Christmas

‘TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS, HE LIVED ALL ALONE, IN A ONE BEDROOM HOUSE MADE OF PLASTER AND STONE. I HAD COME DOWN THE CHIMNEY WITH PRESENTS TO GIVE, AND TO SEE JUST WHO IN THIS HOME DID LIVE. I LOOKED ALL ABOUT, A STRANGE SIGHT TO SEE, NO TINSEL, NO PRESENTS, NOT EVEN A TREE. NO STOCKING BY MANTLE, JUST BOOTS FILLED WITH SAND, ON THE WALL HUNG PICTURES OF FAR DISTANT LANDS. WITH MEDALS AND BADGES, AWARDS OF…

Therefore, it’s little wonder to discover that fans are putting their love for the…

The World Is Mine

Today upon a bus I saw a maiden with golden hair. I envied her, she seemed so gay. I wished I was as fair. Then suddenly as she rose to leave, I saw her hobble down the aisle. She had one foot and wore a crutch, but as she passed a smile. Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. I have two feet, the world is mine. Then I stopped to buy some sweets. The lad who sold them was…
