Who Can Argue Miracles Exist

Who Can Argue Miracles Exist?

No man, be he grandiloquent or coarse;
             be he a learned novel or tattered page;
             be he devout in faith or drenched in doubt;
             be he a man replete with shame of sin:
No man (unless an empty man who flaps like cynic’s skin)
             who has watched the early sun come out
	     or heard the song of sparrows spared the cage:
No man in love with his daughters:  No man in love with his universe.

It's about time it got to #1 - it was stuck behind this horribly bleh long winded bohemeth of a write for ages and ages and it was starting to annoy me. LOL I'm kidding I'm kidding, Connie. Happy to hear from ya as always. :)

Great to see this on the top 100 Phillip, I concur completely this site is a little strange rewarding what we feel is not our best work, and what we KNOW to be great, gets little recognition...such is life, but I did enjoy this write!

I liked this Philip. Albert Einstein said, "Either everything is a miracle or nothing is." I'm with the first. Everything good comes from God, and all His works are miracles. If you would like to read a poem or two off of my profile, click on my name. I'm trying to build a network of like poets.
