Meditations and Poems
Music, you are my Brother; Art, you are my sister….
(Taken from my Diary @1990)
In this section, I would like to share with the reader “words that strengthen” in times of trial. Here are some of my Best Loved Poems. They befriend me and give that right kind of support when I most need it. I encourage others to commit favorite scripture, poems, passages, and songs to heart. It can be a very personal and quiet comfort during life’s storms. Feel free to take these and make them yours as well, if you wish.
A Good that never satisfies the Mind..
A Psalm of Life
Here is one of favorites that I quote when I need to learn patience.
John Burroughs Poem, “Waiting“
Serene, I fold my hands and wait,
Nor care for wind, nor tide, nor sea;
I rave no more ‘gainst time or fate,
For lo! my own shall come to me.
I stay my haste, I make delays,
For what avails this eager pace?
I stand amid the eternal ways,
And what is mine shall know my face.
Asleep, awake, by night or day,
The friends I seek are seeking me;
No wind can drive my bark astray,
Nor change the tide of destiny.
What matter if I stand alone?
I wait with joy the coming years;
My heart shall reap where it hath sown,
And garner up its fruit of tears.
The waters know their own and draw
The brook that springs in yonder height;
So flows the good with equal law
Unto the soul of pure delight.
The stars come nightly to the sky;
The tidal wave unto the sea;
Nor time, nor space, nor deep, nor high,
Can keep my own away from me.
