A Day At Grandpa's Farm

Poem By Day Williams

After the pump breaks a pipe, you dig a ditch,
And when it's fixed, you start the motor, push
The wheel-line over mud and through the corn,
And start the pump again to water crops.

At Dead Man's Slide, the D-4 tilts a bit,
The harrow kicks up choking dust; you shush
Fears that the yellow CAT will roll without warning
And squish you like ground meat in butcher shops.

Covered with dust from head to toe, you hear
The bell ring from the house, and hurry down
The hill to dine on steak, potatoes, peas,

And corn, corn on the cob, fresh-picked, you smear
The butter on, your brother plays the clown,
And Grandma offers ice cream, if you please.

To Praise The Lord

To praise the Lord is good.
For praise is communion with God.
For praise heals the heart and soul.
For praise is right, for the Lamb of God is worthy of it.

Heaven And Earth

(Genesis 1: 1)

Heaven and earth
God made to start,

God Made The Starts

(Genesis 1: 16)

God spoke, and stars
Lit up the sky:

What Good?

(Mark 8: 36)

What good is it
For man to gain

Whisper

Whisper across the centuries
To men with noble hearts and minds,
Who know the power found in love
To open eyes of men born blind.
