Sing Sweet the Song

Sing Sweet the Song

©2012 Susan Noyes Anderson


Humble yourself as a little child

and crawl into the nest.


With barren head and unshod feet

draw peace into your breast.


Come reverently, and shed your burden

like a pair of shoes.


Leave sin and sorrow to the One

who nurtures and renews.


Bow deeply, then arise on wings

of grace and glory born.


Remember Him. Sing sweet the song

of Resurrection Morn.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAVE!
I love you.

Lovely poem, and I read some of your earlier posts too. Like the one about finding the roll of money, and the end of pbjs.
I am your new follower.

and crawl into the nest."
How pure is that.

you are such a talented writer

Karen Mortensen said...

That really gave me goosebumps. Almost cried too.

Darlene said...

Another wonderful piece of poetry, Sue. It is beautiful and I will treasure this .

Also Happy B/D to Dave. I know he will get our late card, but in case you haven't told him, mention that we were thinking about him all day. I know he doesn't read you post. Unlike Dick, who reads everything I write. Of course I am not as prolific as you are, or he might quit reading my stuff too.

I'm also happy to read that I am not the only one that thinks your poetry is amazing.

Absolutely lovely, Sue! And thank you for turning the focus from eggs, bunnies and candy back to where it belongs. XO

Hope Dave had a splendid birthday. Did you guys celebrate it in Maui, or was that trip just for your son's graduation? Has Todd heard anything about his test? How goes the show prep for Sunday?

I feel this should be sung by a choir! Lovely poem.

Christine said...

amazing, how wonderful our thoughts reflect during this time

Pondside said...

So often, after reading one of your poems I have no words. I feel so awkward - and awed - and grateful that you've shared your gift.
What you've done from a picture - beautiful.

The plea for Providence's help and blessings can never see an end. Beautiful verse, Sue!

Thanks for your kind visits Ma'am!
