The Pond

Comfy in this little pad, no cares to burden me,
All around, sweet harmony, the frog, the flow’rs and bees.
With crystal waters gleaming, the sun, its goodness, kiss,
The days of blissful living, in Eden, leave me be.
~ D.F.

Chosen

IMG_5934.JPG
O raise your heads, the poor and maimed,
The LORD now calls, it’s you, He claims!
Salvation, grace, His wage and fame,
Speckled.
Spotted.
Chosen.
Named.
~ D.F.

“The spotted and speckled among the goats: of such shall be my wages.”

Surrender

IMG_4528.JPG
The lightness of His touch, the healing by His hand,
The wounded takes to wing, as warmth revives the land.
Soaring, oh so free, my fainting senses mend,
Then one at peace with Him.
And all that love demands.
~ D.F.

Simple Life

IMG_7644.JPG
A walk into the country side, where fields and flowers grow,
Air, so ever wholesome, feel the earth between our toes.
Rolling back to distant times, when life moved oh so slow,
Where simple virtues were extolled, and hearts, a quiet glow.
~ D.F.

Neverland

Well, I’ll be off to Neverland, young, eternal, free,
There its open meadows, for a run, inviting me.
The wind, so cheerful, dancing, my friends, those handsome trees,
Underneath the brilliant sky, a child, now home with Thee.
~ D.F.
