Monsters!

O how they creep upon you, their tiny hands and feet!
All toothy grin and laughing, the world, a wondrous treat.
For now the bedroom, sleeping, at last, the day, retreat,
My love, these little munchkins! Angels and monsters meet.😃

Child

There he grew before us, a child before our eyes,
Once a tiny sapling, now his, the roving skies.
Whither goes his journey, what promise holds his prize,
Now his wings doth take him, sweet angel in disguise.

World apart it seems, who can reach him there?
Others trawl the earth, while his thoughts leap through the air.
Up where the treetops touching, the feet of He who cares,
Apart but never lonely, with God, he makes a pair.

Restore

Restore

Scattered, lay her children, upon the cold wet floor,
Rain and wind had stolen them, at her arms, they tore.
Who will console this mother, her young return once more?
Gently, the Saviour gathers, her pride of leaves restore.
~ D.F.

Tiptoe

Tiptoe

Spirit quite unbridled, he’s shorter than he seems,
Slow is the world around him, quick ahead he steams.
Ideas none too bold for him; his mind, no prison holds,
Reaching the moon, so easy a task! My boy simply stands tiptoe.

Have you found again that treasure,
All forsaking, to possess?
Feel quiet embers fan back to life,
Become like a child again.
