Winter snow, a crisp cold blanket
Covers all in glistening white
Trees bow low with branches heavy
Bathed in yellow morning light

All is silent, sound is smothered
Still the sir, with peaceful calm
Here I walk with careful measure
Captured by the winter charm

Someone else has walked before me
Steps like stains upon the snow
Dark and deep, they mark his passing
On the path, his route they show

I begin to fill his footprints
Treading out to walking his way
Step by step, my pace is stretching
Matching stride I aim to stay

Tall this man with legs extended
In his steps I move so slow
Always striving pushing forward
His, the way I choose to go

Picture this, my walk with Jesus
His own steps I make my own
Onward pressing, forward slowly
As he makes my pathway known

In step with him, always trusting
Faith so small will surely grow
As my walk grows ever closer
Joy complete Iíll come to know

Strong, solid, smooth transition from the literal to the metaphorical.

The path is easier because He's already been there! Great analogy! (and poem! :) )
Marilyn Schnepp 11/25/05
Very moving poetry, that reaches the very inner soul of those who are trying to walk in His footsteps. Well done, His good and faithful servant...Well done!

Beautifully written. Loved the analogy. Well done.
Sandra Petersen 11/26/05
The analogy of struggling to match the footsteps of a tall man to the struggle to walk the path that Christ calls us to walk is good. Excellent rhythm and rhyme. I like the "steps like stains upon the snow" in stanza 3. Nice job!
