Beautiful poem. I love the imagery, especially in the first few stanzas, and the message.

"Running over, running over,
My cup is full and running over.
Since the Lord saved me,
I'm as happy as can be.
My cup is full and running over."

I don't know if you remember this Sunday School song, but your poem reminded me of it.

Good work.

Charming and uplifting.
I like the way you introduced us to the Source of Joy so prophetically and poetically.

I also like the consistency in your rhyme and meter. Well done.

The same song Lynda mentioned came "bubbling" over when I read your poem. You have the gift of writing lovely poems.

When I first started reading this the song sung by Perry Como "Catch a falling star and put it in your pockets...." started running through my mind, but the further I read, I knew I was being blessed by an even more important lesson. Indeed he fills the broken cup and it does runneth over.
Wonderful work!

This immediately drew me in:
The smile had fallen from her lips;
I stooped to pick it up.

and these words from the Master made me want to weep with joy:
ďMy child, Iíll fill it up.
And even run it over
Though it is a broken cup.Ē

The ending stanza is perfect happiness. Wonderful!

Elizabeth, congratulations on your well-earned placement. It is simply a beautiful poem. Since you're on a farm, do you get some of your inspirations while riding your horse? I know I do.
