    @Dakota: I haven’t done a poem in some time, but I’ve recently came up with one now. Name of poem: A Wandering Cardinal.

     

    A cardinal flew the woodlands,

    Red and beloved and dear

    While the children threw hands

    Into the air, straining to hear

    The bird’s song, glidin’ the lands,

    Eyes scanning it quite clear.

     

    With the weather crisp in snowy air,

    The tree’s bark a brownish gray,

    The waters frozen like mirrors,

    The blue, blue sky sent a ray

    Down on the cardinal in the air

    As it flew the snowy day.

     

    Surrounded in pale, pale snow,

    With a large nest in the tree,

    The cardinal all red, bowed

    His kingly red crest in glee,

    And hopped to the air, now,

    Wanderin’ the snowy woodlands.

    @andrew  Very pretty! I like the colorful, bold words you describe the cardinal. Keep going! 🙂

    The Rock and the Sand

    Two foundations on which to build
    In the One inspired wisdom is instilled
    In the other’s stacked humanity inferior ideals
    In the end, which foundations to the floods will yield?

    Will you build on the Lord Jesus Christ
    On the solidest Rock construct the tower you priced?
    Will the dream of your life withstand
    On the Rock of Ages strong among the shifting sands?

    When the torrents of rain break on you-
    When the tempests of wind blow on through-
    When an ocean of waves wash the world away-
    Will the life you’ve build stand intact that day?

    Do you build on man’s philosophies;
    On the sandiest thoughts build your castle of ease?
    Will the dream of your life withstand
    Or in the depths end up sunk, twisted and torn in the sand?

    When the torrents of rain break on you-
    When the tempests of wind blow on through-
    When an ocean of waves wash the world away-
    Will the life you’ve build stand intact that day?

    Will you be like the wise men of old,
    Who on His Word build a legacy of which stories are told?
    Or will you be like the fools of the past?
    In the shifting sands their castle’s remains are cast.

    When the torrents of rain break on you-
    When the tempests of wind blow on through-
    When an ocean of waves wash the world away-
    Will the life you’ve build stand intact that day?

    Psalm 119:11
    Your word I have hidden in my heart,
    That I might not sin against You.

    Okay, I just sort of came up with another poem. I just thought I’d put it here as well with the other one. Name: The Sea Underneath. Here it goes:

     

    The sea underneath,

    Blue, cool, and neat;

    Yet much deeper beneath

    It’s cold, cold beat.

    Fish swim the coral reef,

    Crabs wander sandy ground,

    Sharks seize their breakfast beef,

    The dolphins unbound.

    Whales much very big,

    Turtles and jellyfish

    Enemies very, very big,

    Like many of the sea’s fish.

    Angelfish, clownfish, pufferfish,

    Eels, shrimp, seahorses

    Are only some of the ocean dish;

    Peaceful, odd, violent, hoarse.

    Sea urchins, sand dollars, clams,

    Wandering the golden sand

    Surface as they blindly ram

    Into stones without a helping hand.

    Lionfish, Anglerfish, Stonefish

    Are also a little more

    Of the interesting sea fish;

    Yet there’s always room for more.

    Around the coral reef

    Swim colorful fish of many breeds,

    But sometimes end up the beef

    Of Mr. Shark’s old meal of pure greed.

    Parrotfish eat solid hard corals,

    Swordfish have such gifted blades,

    Goblin sharks often painted in murals,

    And killer whales in dangerous raids.

    Coral reefs, trenches, open waters,

    Seaweed beds and certain grounds

    Are all very great waters

    Of an ocean all way ‘round.

    The sea underneath,

    Is full of danger and adventure,

    But even, you know, beneath

    That is a world full of beauty.
