People Are For Lovin'

Birds sin unpremediated art
On this warm gray winter's day
People are for lovin'; things are for use
Sing birds sing, broadcast it; don't dismay

Birds sing morn's verse, do you hear their song
Tell this new generation
Things are for use; people are for lovin'
Not to be used but for admiration

Birds sing unsung lovely melody
Unrehearsed tune in time sing
People are for lovin'; things are for use
Listen hear the sound as they upswing

Birds sing back and forth to each other
When will humans ever learn
Things are for use; people are for lovin'
Maybe today is the day of turn  

Finis.Till we meet again..Sara

When I was going to Bible College
about 20 years ago, I had a teacher
that said one evening, "Things are for
use and people are to be loved"..
His name was Dr. I. W. Bowen..
The statement was made not directed
at the class for them to learn but he
was just walking around the room..
That has stuck with me all these years.
Sometimes we get it all wrong don't we..

    Great lesson, sweetheart. It serves as a reminder that God created us to love and be loved by Him. Free will clouded the issue and we really get it wrong at times. Thanks for writing this one..... Jake

    I agree with you, but people often forget that and love things more than anything else. Great poem!
