When Alexander Graham Bell
invented communication
by talking into a little box,
he created quite a sensation!

It probably started out
like any brand new thing,
with people, everywhere, curious
to hear that little ring.

I remember the days of party lines
where several families shared
one telephone line, and of their business,
my family was quite aware!

It's amazing how the telephone
can dictate your whole day!
You wake up, planning who you'll call
and what you're going to say.

Or, if you wait for an incoming buzz
you try to remain free,
or, have your cell phone handy
whereever you happen to be.

One great thing about the phone
is how it helps you share
some good news and encouragement
to friends everywhere!

Sharing joys and sharing sorrows,
praying for each other,
Spreading the Good News
of Jesus Christ
to all our sisters and brothers.

I issue you a challenge, now.
Can you be ready for "the call"?
When our sweet Lord Jesus
calls our name,
will we rise, or will we fall?

When our Savior calls us,
He will not need a phone!
God knows all our numbers
and Eternal ring tones!

This poem has a great message that flows nicely.

I did stumble over the rhythm in several places.

Very nice.

I like this, especially this last part:

God knows all our numbers
and Eternal ring tones!

Your rhyme is good, but your rhythm is off. Try to make the coordinating lines have the same number of beats.

I like the message of this. Thank you for writing it.

You have done a great job of covering a variety of thoughts related to the topic. I especially like the final two stanzas.
