Sabbath

Sunday is a day distinct from any other. It is burnished with boyhood scenes Of home, silverware, and Mother. They often superintend my dreams. Mother got us ready for meeting, Scrubbed to shine the night before. None of us was worthy of greeting Unless godly clean at the chapel door. The day yet fosters a feeling unique. I felt it even as an unlearned lad. It gave me pause, it turned me meek. It made me grateful for what I had. Every Sunday morning without fail And throughout the Sabbath hours. The feeling reaches through the veil Lifting me with Christ-borne powers.

Paul,, Stopping by with a nice, sweet Welcome to Poetry Soup. I will get much delight, in reading and in time become familiar with your verse. As for now, I will greet you with the same smile, others passed, when I first join the soup 4 years ago. I wish you the best when it comes to your compositions. I hope you get to meet all the nice poets around here. Starting with me. SKAT :-) Please drop a hello and tell me a little about yourself if you wish. I would like to be your newest poetry soup "FRIEND" Hugs* SKAT

SKAT A: I cannot recall having received a more gracious message. Thank you! I could not be more grateful. I have no doubt you are among the nice poets, very likely in the forefront. I'm honored to be a friend with a 4-year veteran of PS. A little bit about me will be forthcoming. In the meantime, blessings (and thanks again).
