Snow White

Snow White

She looked so fragile, pale, colour softly drain,
Fragrance of her breath, the cold find ever faint.
Blood warm upon the snow, earth, this mortal stain,
Awake to that promised hour, soul in glass restrain.
~ D.F.

Gems

Gems

String of hearts so woven, pledge of love and care,
Precious gems to cherish, which other bids compare?
Blessing from the Almighty, whose very nature share,
Man, what joy fulfilling! His wife and children fair.

River Bend

Bend

Come round the bend with me, where hope as carpet grows,
Waters catching light, life, as the river flows.
Come round the bend with me, your hand so soft to hold,
Day at last, its resting, by night, our story told.
~ D.F.

Fireworks

Fireworks

Swift the year passing by, fleeting clouds, darkening skies,
Echoes lost in whispered time, rolling days, the seasons die.
Next to me, come sweet desire, treasure laden to the nigh,
Velvet night, see fireworks fly! Joyful shouts, the teardrops dry.
~ D.F.

Follow Me

Follow

Show me the One whom I can follow,
Whose path is sure, the thorns and sorrow.
Show me the One whom I can follow,
Bread that fills, hearts empty and hollow.
Show me the One whom I can follow,
Spirit breathing, earth, flower and swallow.
Show me the One whom I can follow,
Gentle Name, so reviled yet hallowed.
~ D.F.

*************
“Follow me..”
~ Mark 1:17

Jacob’s Ladder

Jacob's Ladder

O lead me on to heaven, sweet celestial stairs,
Steps both broad and firm, my weary gait to bear.
His voice so gently coaxing, my load, the angels share,
Now stars within my reaching, beyond the hurt and care.
~ D.F.

*************
“A stairway rested on the ground, with its top reaching to the heavens; and God’s angels were going up and down on it.”
~ Genesis 28:12
