Faith

Just lovely – the following for example…
“…For every fruitful tree, there is a lifeless one,
and every where I look, I lose and find my faith,
but then I turn to ponder how the children of the sun,
can forgive its scorching love, and in its caresses bathe…”

Poems & People

Falls the sweetest apple, from the stem of its laden bough,
like a supple water drop from a dripping finger tip.
To grace the quivering lips, or the tainted wastelands brow?
Shall it hold its mothers hand, or deign to let it slip?
For every fruitful tree, there is a lifeless one,
and every where I look, I lose and find my faith,
but then I turn to ponder how the children of the sun,
can forgive its scorching love, and in its caresses bathe.
Alas! I find my peace, where fireflies come to nest,
inglorious they would be, would they awaken at dawn,
but faith has vouchsafed wings, and to apples sweetest rest,
tomorrow they shall depart, to where those before have gone.
