Battle Of Tours (732 A.D.)

Poem By Day Williams

Come save us, Hammer, from Muslim hordes
So we can serve and worship Christ our Lord

The Arabs pierced the Pyrenees, invaded
The Franks, and pounded north toward Tours, where they'd
Plunder the Abby of St. Martin, rich
And holy shrine-but their plan had a glitch,

For Charles Martel avoided roads, and brought
His army over mountains, the blind spot
For Arabs, who had to defeat this force
To get to Tours, and with their many horses

And stirrups (Franks had none) , the seventh day
They charged uphill at Franks who fought and stayed
And thrust them back, while others circled round,
Took booty and freed slaves, to their renown.

The Muslim host fled from the enemy
And Christian Charles Martel claimed victory.

Come save us, Hammer, from Muslim hordes
So we can serve and worship Christ our Lord

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.
