Topic: Green (10/22/09)

TITLE: He Helped Me with Green

Roses are red, and violets are blue,
The topic is green, and I havenít a clue.
With pleas for His mercy, and a heart full of hope,
I sit at the keyboard, and look like a dope.

I wonít write without You! My hopes can all fall,
I wonít write without You! Iíll write nothing at all.
I wonít write without You! The deadline draws neigh,
Would it impress You my Father if I started to cry?
He gave me no answer. No answer at all,
But I sensed He was smiling,
Which made me feel small.

I thought I should ask Him; I thought I should pray,
I thought I should ask Him; and hereís what Iíd say.

Should I write about frogs? Or crickets that sing?
Or moss covered logs or the jealousy thing?
Or green leaves and blind men receiving their sight?
O Lord I am straining; Iím trying to fight
The loss of Your inputómy heartfelt delight.

I closed the computer and said with deep sigh,
The Lord is my Sovereign, I gave it a try.

But laughter came quickly from somewhere unseen,
He thought I was funny; Heíd help me with green.
But loosen and lighten and laugh at yourself,
I AM your Sovereign,
You need nothing else.

Congratulations on placing first with this fun and entertaining poem. So much truth in those lines. Flow and rhyme were excellent as well as the message tucked in this entry.
