How warm the sun upon my face
The morning beauty fills my sight;
With creative, expressive grace
Coloured blue,yellow green and white.
                    A solstice June
                    Mid-summer tune
Fills heart and mind with pure delight.
Look there,do you see the wall of red brick
          each upon the other:
            leans with great care.

One joined evenly next to the other
           bonded together in

Participating in their purposes
          combining ,each their strengths
          the load to share:

Weathered with the storms of life on its face
           enduring through
Why oh why did our sweet love die:
                   My dearest heart
Has another fancy come nigh:
                   To take my part?
Did good looks,fine words turn your head:
                   On rebounds hook
Then to another,he so quickly sped:
                   And thee forsook
Will words of love and this gold ring:
                   Now make you mine
With promises,to make bells ring:
                   This troth is thine.
Each day remember not,forgive my sin
                     My Lord,within
In worship as I praise
to You my hands I raise;
and know you as You are,
close up,not from afar

Each day remember not,forgive my sin
                     My Lord,within
Help me to stop and wait
for guidance,to relate
when on my knees ,I pray
hear better,what You say

Each day remember not,forgive my sin
                     My Lord,within
If ever words fall on deaf EARS
If ever FACE is washed with tears
If ever VOICE is expressing fears
Let now my EARS,my FACE,my VOICE
         still make Jesus their choice.
Listen to me recite these poems of homage after the style of George Herbert on
my  youtube videos under name ichthyschiro.

    You know Brian I don't think I had ever even heard his name? I'm glad you enjoyed my reading, I guess it was plain how much I loved that man :). Thanks for reading my verses. Light & Love
