AFTER THE STYLE A recited

Written by: Brian Strand

AMERGIN
FIRST AND LAST
I am a tear:in tragedy's fear
I am the hope:when power cannot cope
I bring forth life: from the world's strife
I am the peace:that will never cease
I am the fire:in love's desire
I am the light: in blindness sight
I am the grace: in repentance face
I am  friend:  who but I
Sees the beginning from the end
AMERICAN DOUBLETS
THOUGHTS BEHIND A BURIAL CORTEGE 
We,like annual flowers,fade,then die
As clouds evaporate up in the sky.
ALONG THE GARDEN PATH
I brush a tall primrose in early bloom
On the evening breeze a yellow perfume
O PRAY	
O pray that we like Jesaus B
That others wonder Y
His Peace,His Joy,His love, they C
Flow out from U and I
