Here beneath Godís canopy
Around me Mother Earth
I ponder on my destiny
On purpose, plans and worth

The sounds of spirits old and new,
Whisper through the trees
Telling tales of others too
That knelt upon their knees

Iíve wandered far from home this day
Beyond my tending sheep
Bringing food of corn and whey
For brotherís health and keep

I know not of Godís plan for me
In warring lands I camp
A far cry from reality
He chooses me to tamp

Tomorrow with the morning light
All things will become clear
Maybe I will choose to fight
Or maybe cringe with fear

For now, my comrades sleep and snore
But I am not alone
Godís presence warms me ever more
With love of hearth and home

Great thoughts on boy David. What a remarkable character. I wasn't sure what the word "tamp" meant though.

Lovely poem. There's this feeling of your closeness to God.

Good poem despite the measure issues.
Val Clark07/25/05
Great work, I didn't read the title but knew it had to be David. Your rhymes work well.

Hi Debra. I'm just popping in very quickly to let you know that your poem was in the semi-finals for the Camping Challenge. So be encouraged - you did very well. With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
