A Poet 6-18-11


A poet writes no poems
despite a great design,
despite the countless hours,
despite the finest line.

Although we pray and meditate,
although the writing's fun,
although we may be gifted,
we can't write even one.

A poem's written long before
a poet lifts his pen -
and sets on paper solemn thoughts
that's given him from Heaven.

For God sends bits of wisdom,
that sprinkle from above -
as He rains down His blessings
and great, eternal love.

Proverbs 2: 1-10 (NASB)
1 My son, if you will receive my words
And treasure my commandments within you,
2 Make your ear attentive to wisdom,
Incline your heart to understanding;
3 For if you cry for discernment, 
Lift your voice for understanding;
4 If you seek her as silver
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
5 Then you will discern the fear of the LORD
And discover the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
8 Guarding the paths of justice,
And He preserves the way of His godly ones.
9 Then you will discern righteousness and justice
And equity and every good course.
10 For wisdom will enter your heart
And knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;
