Our Masterpoet

To give and gratefully respond
to beauty, love and tenderness,
to lose ourselves, but gain
a truer, purer and, perhaps,
a timeless new identity...

To share in voluntary bond
the precious rhymes and rhythms of life,
the surging tides of joy and pain,
the laughter and the tears,
the bitter and the sweet...

That, my beloved, is why you and I
must read, together, every stanza that
our God, The Masterpoet, wrote
for you and me to read,
to live!

Well said Willem. I know I don't read near enough of the Master Poet's Word. I plan to start soon.

Willem -
Nicely put.  Much inspiration found in the verses God wrote.
