Down yonder in the large-leafed kudzu patch Where it is thick, silky, and very green Clinging to gullied hills it tries to catch Where young lovers tucked away, won't be seen That is, if it is during mid-summer And a couple can hide in the vines But do you want to meet him with murmurs Running around, that will be some grand lines Is that a memory you want to face? When you are old, worn, gray facing the judge It is good that Jesus gives His grace For through His grace, He erases every smudge The summer kudzu patch is a nice green Jesus in His grace is an awesome King

It makes you wonder "Is that a memory you want to face? When you are old, worn, gray facing the judge" And it made me smile.

Well penned, Kudzu creeps massively throughout the land; still, it's a beautiful view in some places. Enjoyed.

Sara, I enjoyed this poem. What an inspiration. I'd never heard of Mummer's Leaves. I'll have to look that up. Blessings in the New Year. Debra
