A Heavenly Robe

Upon the sea of lustrous cloths,
I cast an eager eye.
Which of these goods so wonderful
Will be the one Iíd buy?

Perhaps the pearly pink will do,
Or maybe lightest blue,
And even seafoam green is nice.
I like the purple, too.

Should I select a soft cashmere,
Or shiniest sateen,
The silk that is so swishy,
Or richest velveteen?

As for the trim, might I like lace
Or dainty eyelet white?
The bright gold trim all braided up
Is quite a pretty sight.

And then there are the patterns bold
And varied as can be.
The long, the short, or the mid-length--
Which would be right for me?

And next Iíll need to get some thread
In colors that will please,
And buttons of some fancy shapes
As my accessories.

And last of all Iíll want to find
A seamstress whoíll be sewing
A robe most beautiful to wear
In heaven where Iím going.



Then I awake from deepest dreams
And shopping heavenly.
To know for sure God will supply
The perfect robe for me.

Verna, you know how to put words together like ingredients in the most luscious of dishes. When I read writing such as yours, I feel like I'm savoring each word for all the flavor it contains and relishing the experience. Yum! And, that's just the word-experience. The summary ending is simply perfect for your message. You are one of my favorite writers, friend!
