Best Craig Cornish Poems

+ Fav Poet


St. Augustine wrote then, and now
Those words so old yet new.
Two thousand years have nearly passed
And still its’ truth shines through.
The words, the heart, a sacred vow,
The Latin rings so true.
“Est autem fides credere quod
Nondem vides:
Cuius fidei merces
Est videre quod credis.”
*“Faith is to believe
What you do not see:
Reward of this faith is to see
What you believe.”
As long as love and charity 
Wraps its’ arms around,
These thoughts two thousand
Years from now will always be profound…

*English translation within the poem
