        @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.

        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.
