A Little Bird

A Little Bird" (Refer to= Matthew 10:29,31) One of the first things that I hear As dawn breaks in the eastern sky Is a cheerful song, of a little bird Another bleak night, it does defy God instilled in it, the simple fact That life and hope, still remain A ray of sunshine, can be seen Amid our sorrow, and our pain The night before, the screen displayed A clenched fist and angry eyes As turmoil raged within the heart Of those who voiced their battle cries Although darkness may rule the heart Of those who rebel against the light In the end, victory will be sweet We'll rejoice, that our choice was right He who attends the funeral of a sparrow Will not our needs forsake When evil would engulf our land A way of escape, He will make I have faith that amid our trials His love, He will always show He'll guide us when the night is dark "A little bird told me so" Colan L Hiatt = 06-27-13 © All Rights Reserved

Colan, I like birds, and I really like this poem and the little bird references. This poem has lots to say and speaks the truth. A very good one. Lanette Kissel

Hi, Colan, How true what you write about God's love will always be there for us. I see you wrote this is June of 2013. What have you written recently beside the other 4 poems you have posted here on poetry soup? I hope you will be sharing more with us here. Blessings, Darlene

Darlene: Thanks for your comment. I have been writing quiet a bit the last several months. I plan to post several in the future. I just posted another, ("A Servant's Heart") that was also written in 2013. Thanks again, and "stay-tuned." In Christ = Colan
