Message of Departure

I will watch their winged endurance, on the crest of autumn's eve, without knowing where or distance, but in faith they must believe As the harsh breath sounds of winter are calling geese to leave I will hear songs of assurance, gliding low against the breeze I can hear inherent partings, as they form into a V And they soothe my doubtful worry, as they fly the crimson sea Lifting eyes, I follow upward, as they cluster into line With necks stretched long and southbound, departing with a sigh With constant proof, year after year, their calling fills my ears Sent here by the grace of God, in a race against my fear While their promised songs may sadden me, and tears to eyes will bring Their steadfast return assures my heart, to believe tomorrow's spring "Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith."

    Dear Carrie - Such a wonderful line: 'I can hear inherent partings, as they form into a V' Such a wonderful poem, full of sadness, hope, renewal. I want to tell you. Your comment to Debbie's Mother's Bookmark was one of most moving I've read about the emotionally starved child. Personal experience, yes - poetry a strange theme in it all. Thank y ou. love, Kathy
