Default Ah! the love of poetry . . .

"We have art so that we shall not die of reality."(Nietzsche)
===================
When I知 a Little Old Lady
Author Unknown.

When I知 a little old lady
Then I値l live with my children and bring them great joy.
To repay all I致e had from each girl and boy.
I shall draw on the walls and scuff up the floor;
Run in and out without closing the door,
I値l hide frogs in the pantry, socks under my bed.
Whenever they scold me, I値l just hang my head.
I値l run and romp, always fritter away
The time to be spent doing chores everyday.
I値l pester my children when they池e on the phone.
As long as they池e busy, I won稚 leave them alone.
Hide candy in closets, rocks in a drawer,
And never pick up my clothes from the floor.
Dash off to the movies and not wash a dish,
I値l plead for allowance whenever I wish.
I値l stuff up the plumbing and deluge the floor,
As soon as they致e mopped it, I値l flood it some more
When they correct me, I値l lie down and cry.
Kicking and screaming, not a tear in my eye,
I値l take all their pencils and flashlight, and then
When they buy new ones, I値l take them again.
I値l spill glasses of milk to complete every meal,
Eat my banana and just drop the peel.
Put toys on the table, spill jam on the floor,
I値l break lots of dishes as though I were four.
What fun I shall have, what a joy it will be,
To live with my children . . . Like they lived with me!
=====================

Default Poem by Hans Christian Andersen

I adore Hans Christian Andersen's work. He's the creator of stories like "The Little Mermaid" (no, it wasn't Disney ), "The Emperor's New Clothes" (again no, it wasn't Disney ), "The Princess and the Pea", "The Ugly Duckly", and many, many more.

I found this today at The Hans Christian Andersen Center. I cried when I read it but thought it was so beautiful. Hans Christian Andersen was an incredibly gifted individual whose talent has yet to be challenged. Have a tissue ready.
-----------------------------------------------------
The Dying Child

By Hans Christian Andersen.
Mother, I'm tired, and I would fain be sleeping;
Let me repose upon thy bosom sick;
But promise me that thou wilt leave off weeping,
Because thy tears fall hot upon my cheek.

Here it is cold: the tempest raveth madly;
But in my dreams all is so wondrous bright;
I see the angel-children smiling gladly,
When from my weary eyes I shut out light.

Mother, one stands beside me now! and, listen!
Dost thou not hear the music's sweet accord?
See how his white wings beautifully glisten?
Surely those wings were given him by the Lord!

Green, gold, and red, are floating all around me;
They are the flowers the angel scattereth.
Should I have also wings while life has bound me?
Or, mother, are they given alone in death?

Why dost thou clasp me as if I were going?
Why dost thou press thy cheek so unto mine?
Thy cheek is hot, and yet thy tears are flowing!
I will, dear mother, will be always thine!

Do not sigh thus it marreth my reposing;
But if thou weep, then I must weep with thee!
Ah, I am tired my weary eyes are closing
Look, mother, look! the angel kisseth me!

A Mother's Prayer by Rush'd Lady, To Be Educated Poem, & Poems about Greeting Cards can all be found at:www.oldfashionedliving.com

Read various versions of the children's prayer here:
"Now I lay me down to sleep"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Now_I_Lay_Me_Down_To_Sleep
=======================
I thought this poem would be good for a framed photo gift for a son or daughter who is into sports. Add a stamped image or two, this poem and a photo of the son or daughter in gear. If this idea inspires you to create, please share a link to the photo of your gift here. Thanks.

An Athlete's Prayer
By Danita Pangel

Lord, please clear my head of all distractions,
And my heart of burdens I may bear,
So I may perform my very best,
Knowing You'll always be there.

Please lift me up before the moment,
So through Your eyes I may see,
And have a clearer understanding,
As the game unfolds before me.

With great courage I will meet this challenge,
As You would have me to,
But keep me humble and remind me,
That my strength comes from knowing You.

Then when all eyes are upon me,
At the end of this big game,
I will turn their eyes to You O' Lord,
And to the the glory of Your name.

Amen.

Twelve Days of Genealogy
Author Unknown.

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas
My true love gave to me.
Twelve census searches,
Eleven printer ribbons,
Ten e-mail contacts,
Nine headstone rubbings,
Eight birth and death dates,
Seven town clerks sighing,
Six-second cousins,
Five coats of arms,
Four GEDCOM files,
Three old wills,
Two CD-ROMS,
And a branch in my family tree.

=========================
Out to Old Aunt Mary's.
By James Whitcomb Riley.

Wasn't it pleasant, O brother mine,
In those old days of the lost sunshine
Of youth -- when the Saturday's chores were through,
And the "Sunday's wood" in the kitchen, too,
And we went visiting, "me and you,"
Out to Old Aunt Mary's?

It all comes back so clear today!
Though I am as bald as you are gray --
Out by the barn-lot, and down the lane,
We patter along in the dust again,
As light as the tips of the drops of the rain,
Out to Old Aunt Mary's!

We cross the pasture, and through the wood
Where the old gray snag of the poplar stood,
Where the hammering red-heads hopped awry,
And the buzzard "raised" in the clearing sky,
And lolled and circled, as we went by,
Out to Old Aunt Mary's.

And then in the dust of the road again'
And the teams we met, and the countrymen;
And the long highway, with sunshine spread
As thick as butter on country bread,
Our cares behind, and our hearts ahead
Out to Old Aunt Mary's.

Why, I see her now in the open door,
Where the little gourds grew up the sides, and o'er
The clapboard roof! - And her face -- ah, me!
Wasn't it good for a boy to see --
And wasn't it good for a boy to be
Out to Old Aunt Mary's?

The jelly -- the jam and the marmalade,
And the cherry and quince "preserves" she made!
And the sweet-sour pickles of peach and pear,
With cinnamon in 'em, and all things rare!
And the more we ate was the more to spare,
Out to Old Aunt Mary's!

And the old spring-house in the cool green gloom
Of the willow-trees, and cooler room
Where the swinging-shelves and the crocks were kept --
Where the cream in a golden languor slept
While the waters gurgled and laughed and wept --
Out to Old Aunt Mary's!

And as many a time have you and I --
Barefoot boys in the days gone by --
Knelt, and in tremulous ecstasies
Dipped our lips into sweets like these --
Memory now is on her knees
Out to Old Aunt Mary's!

And O, my brother, so far away,
This is to tell you she waits today
To welcome us; -- Aunt Mary fell
Asleep this morning, whispering, "Tell
The boys to come!" And all is well
Out to Old Aunt Mary's!

Default How's the Summer Going?

On Father's Day, each dad in our church had to stand up, & the children passed out tiny paper sacks of chocolate kisses with this poem attached to each:


"Fathers have a special role; In each young child's life
To mould and shape them to become: A follower of Christ
To show them the Father's heart: And help them understand
How God's love can be their guide; As they take Him by the hand."

You see, 'tis the season of weddings and my hubbin has a niece getting married this summer and I admit, I'm a hopeless romantic. When I recently heard these songs by Hank Snow, I just had to share.

Marriage Vow.
Sung by Hank Snow.

"Do you take this woman to be your dear wife,
Do you vow to love her the rest of your life,
And will you protect her and honor her name,
Oh, don't cause her heartaches and don't bring her shame,
Share with her in poverty, with her in wealth,
For richer, for poorer, through sickness and health?"
All these things the parson did ask me and then,
I whispered, "I Do, and I'd do it again.

For I really love her, the one I call wife
And I'll go on caring the rest of my life
I'd die to protect her and she'd do the same
I'd cut off my tongue before I'd bring her shame
We may be in poverty, may not have wealth,
But we stick together through sickness and health
I'll always be thankful till my life is done,
That two little words made us both into one."
~ ~ ~ <> @ <> ~ ~ ~
(This is my in-laws song! They were married in 1953. What kind of scrapbook page would you design for this song?)

Honeymoon On a Rocket Ship
Sung by Hank Snow.

I know somewhere out in the world
There is a gal for me,
I'd like to find and make you mine
How happy we would be,
We wouldn't need a moonlight night to sit outdoors and spoon,
Because I would buy a rocketship and take you to the moon.

Chorus:
We would have a honeymoon on the rocketship
We would fly from star to star on our wedding trip
You could make your wedding gown out of the big moonbeam,
Could sprinkle stardust in your hair, you'd be a birthday dream.

We'd sit on top of the universe with no one else around,
I'd reach right up and pick the stars and make you a pretty crown,
I'd place it on your little head and kiss your smiling lips,
As we glided out through space upon the rocketship.

Then we'd go strolling on & on along the Milky Way,
We would visit every planet on our Wedding Day,
We would laugh and love sweetheart, and you could be my wife,
We would find the land of love out there in paradise.

Final Chorus:
We would have a honeymoon on the rocketship
We would fly from star to star on our wedding trip
I'd take my ole guitar along and we would softy croon
On our journey through the sky and headed for the moon.
~ ~ ~ <> @ <> ~ ~ ~
Married by the Bible, Divorced by Law.
Sung by Hank Snow.

What a strange world we live in,
What a shame, oh, what a shame,
Someone's always quarrelin'
Their marriage don't remain.
Divorces by the thousands
Is this human race insane
I always thought that marriage
Should be a sacred thing.

Chorus:
Married by the Bible, Divorced by the Law,
Every day there's more and more
The worst I ever saw.
Things have changed, they're not the same
As the days of Ma and Pa,
They were married by the Bible
No divorces by the law.

Steps are often taken without thinking twice
And oft times, there's a child or two
Who's left to pay the price.
Those little hearts so innocent
They don't know who's to blame
No mom & dad to love them
What a shame, oh, what a shame.

I also ran across these poems. I can see this poem in relation to a heritage scrapbook. [Photos of babies or "twin" children placed in a tree. Think Anne Geddes].


Apple Buds
~ Author Unknown.


Here are two apple buds growing on a tree,
Curled up very tightly, as buds should be.
Along came the sun one day shining from the sky,
And two little apple buds opened up their eyes.
~~<> @ <> ~~


Here's a poem to accompany photos of children playing in a sandbox.
.
My Sand Box.
By Dick Wilmes.


On sunny days I go to play
In a magic land not far away.
It's filled with sand for castles fair
Or streets that go just everywhere.
And in my truck the sand I load
To fill a hole just down the road.
To find the place is not too hard
It's out the door in my backyard.
~~ <> @ <> ~~
Imagine with me: can't you just see a photo of a little boy, muddy from from head to toe accompanied by this poem on your scrapbook page? *smile*


Dry Dirt, Wet Dirt.
By Dick Wilmes.


Dry dirt, wet dirt,
Oh, what fun,
Sitting in the backyard,
Playing in the sun.
Dry dirt is dusty
Wet dirt is mud.
Drop the wet dirt on the ground
And hear it go thud.
~~ <> @ <> ~~
How many of you attend a fair or carnival each summer? Here's a poem for a Ferris Wheel Photo in your scrapbook!
The Ferris Wheel.
By Dick Wilmes.


The ferris wheel goes up so high,
You think you're going to touch the sky.
And down you come and then around,
Spinning up above the ground.
And when it's over, you are so proud,
To think you almost touched a cloud.
~~ <> @ <> ~~
A girlfriend sent me this. This apron favor poem was computer generated, text centered in the middle of the paper and cut into the shape of an apron. A piece of fabric cut with pinking sheers was sewn to the back. Two bias tape ties was sandwiched between the paper & fabric at the top so it could serve as a napkin ring and later to hang in the kitchen. I typed in 10 pt. font as the original was and stopped where each line ended to make the shape of the apron.


APRONS
~Author Unknown.
I don't think kids "nowadays"
know what an apron is.
The principal use of Grandma's apron was
to protect the dress underneath, but
along with that, it served as a pot-
holder for removing hot pans from the oven.
It was wonderful for drying children's
tears, and on occasion was even used
for cleaning out dirty ears.
From the chicken coop, the apron was
used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and
sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished
in the warming oven.
When company came, those aprons
were ideal hiding places for shy kids.
And when the weather was cold, grandma wrapped it around her arms.
Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow bent over the hot wood stove.
Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron.
From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas had been shelled, it carried out the hulls.
In the fall, the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees.
When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.
When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.
It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace the "old-time apron" that served so many purposes.
Remember: Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on the window sill to cool.
Her granddaughters set theirs on the window sill to thaw.

I've recently read these books:

Scrapbooking Your Faith: Layouts that Celebrate your Spiritual Beliefs. By Courtney Walsh. 2007. > gives one something new to think about and journal.

The Ultimate Guide to the Perfect Card: Prose, Expressions, Quotes, & Sentiments. Compiled by Linda LaTourelle. 2007.


The Flour Sack
By Colleen B. Hubert.


Long ago time when things were saved,
When roads were graveled and barrels were staved,
When worn-out clothing was used as rags,
And there were no plastic wrap or bags,
And the well and the pump were way out back,
A versatile item, was the flour sack.


Pillsbury's Best! Mother's and Gold Medal, too
Stamped their names proudly in purple and blue,
The string sewn on top was pulled and kept;
The flour emptied and spills were swept,
The bag wwas folded and stored in a sack,
That durable, practical flour sack.


The sack could be filled with feather and down,
For a pillow, or t'would make a sleeping gown.
It could carry a book and be a school bag,
Or become a mail sack slung over a nag.
It made a very convenient pack.
That adaptable, cotton flour sack.

Bleached and sewn, it was dutifully worn
As bibs, diapers, or kerchief adorned.
It was made into skirts, blouses and slips
And mom braided rugs from one hundred strips.
She made ruffled curtains for the house or shack,
From that humble but treasured flour sack!

As a strainer for milk or apple juice,
To wave men in, it was a very good use,
As a sling for a sprained wrist or a break,
To help mother roll up a jelly cake,
As a window shade or to stuff a crack,
We used a sturdy, common flour sack!


As dish towels, embroidered or not,
They covered up dough, helped pass pans so hot,
Tied up dishes for neighbors in need,
And for men out in the field to see
They dried dishes from pan, not rack
That absorbent, handy flour sack!


We polished and cleaned stove and table,
Scoured and scrubbed from cellar to gable,
We dusted the bureau and oak bedpost,
Made costumes for October (a scary ghost)
And a parachute for a cat named Jack,
From that lowly, useful old flour sack!



So now, my friends, when they ask you
As curious youngsters often do,
"Before plastic wrap, Elmer's glue
And paper towels, what did you do?"
Tell them loudly and with pride don't lack,
"Grandmother had that wonderful flour sack!"

You are most welcome! Here's a quote:

A letter is a blessing, a gift. It can turn a private moment into an exalted experience. Unlike the phone, a letter is never an interruption. A letter doesn’t require immediate attention; it can be saved for the appropriate time and place and savored. Whenever I answer the telephone, I am at the mercy of another person’s schedule. A letter, on the other hand, is a treat with no strings attached. (Alexandra Stoddard, Gift of a Letter).

The art of communication can take many forms . . .

Default For Old-Fashioned Grandma's & their Heritage Albums

Grandmother's Day
~ Author Unknown.

Grandmother on a winter's day
Milked the cows and fed them hay
Slopped the hogs, saddled the mule
Got the children off to school.

Did the washing, mopped the floor
Washed the windows and did the chores
Cooked a dish of home-dried fruit
And pressed her husband's Sunday suit.

Swept the parlor, made the bed
Baked a dozen loaves of bread
Split some firewood and lugged it in
Enough to fill the kitchen bin.

Cleaned the lamps and put in oil,
Stewed some apples she thought would spoil.
Churned the butter, baked a cake
Then exclaimed, "For mercy's sake!
The cows got out of their pen!"
Went out and chased them in again.

Gathered the eggs, locked the stable
Back to the house and set the table
Cooked a supper that was delicious
And afterwards washed all the dishes.

Fed the cat, sprinkled the clothes
Mended a basket full of hose
Then opened the organ and began to play,
"When you come to the end of a perfect day."

I'm looking for Veggie Tale Quotes like this one: Larry-Boy, "It's hard to know when cranberries are bad 'cause they always taste like that!"

Default Well, I went digging yesterday and this is what I found . . .

12 Days of Christmas for Students
found at: www.kidzworld.com

On the twelveth day of X-mas my true love gave to me
Twelve college degrees
Eleven students on honor-roll
Ten students studying
Nine school dances
Eight students-a-learning
Seven kids in the office
Six #2 pencils
Five free-dress days
Four sick kids
Three straight A`s
Two pink erasers
And one teacher teaching

The Thirteen Days of Homeschooling
~ Author Unknown.

On the twelfth day of homeschool, my neighbor said to me,
Can they go to college? What about graduation? They'll miss the prom! I could never do this, Why do you do this? Look at what they're missing! How long will you homeschool? YOU ARE SO STRANGE! What about PE? Do you give them tests? Are they socialized? Can you homeschool le-gal-ly?

On the thirteenth day of homeschool, I thoughtfully replied,
Colleges love homeschools. We'll have high school transcripts. Prom is just a party. You could if you wanted. God wants me to do this. They are missing nothing. I'll homeschool forever! WE ARE NOT STRANGE!! We go to the "Y", We do test, They are super kids, and we homeschool le-gal-ly!

An Old Woman of the Roads
by Padraic Colum (1881-1972)

O, to have a little house!
To own the hearth and stool and all!
The heaped up sods upon the fire,
The pile of turf against the wall!

To have a clock with weights and chains
And pendulum swinging up and down!
A dresser filled with shining delph,
Speckled and white and blue and brown!

I could be busy all the day
Clearing and sweeping the hearth and floor,
And fixing on their shelf again
My white and blue and speckled store!

I could be quiet there at night
Beside the fire and by myself,
Sure of a bed and loath to leave
The ticking clock and the shining delph!

Och! but I'm weary of mist and dark
And roads where there's never a house nor bush,
And tired I am of bog and road,
And the crying wind and the lonesome hush!

And I am praying to God on high,
And I am praying Him night and day,
For a little house, a house of my own,
Out of the wind's and the rain's way.

By the way, you don't have to ask my permission to post in this thread. If you want to share a bit of prose, a prayer, or a poem that you have used in your own paper crafts or think it might be of interest to other paper artists here, by all means, please feel free to post. I just began this thread, because I saw a need for an index of poetry here at Splitcoaststampers. And I hope it's been helpful.

I saw several posts asking for appropriate times to send cards (ie. card manners) and I ran across this book at my local library. It's been very informative.

Default Kissing Hand Poem

I found both of these poems from http://www.kinderthemes.com/thekissinghand.html. These poems were inspired by the book "The Kissing Hand".


--------------------------------------------------------------
A piece of me I give to you,
This special heart because
"I love you."
The heart is you, the hand is me,
It shows that we are
A Family.

This poem comes from teacher "Sandie in Seattle"

--------------------------------------------------------------
It's my first day of school
And "The Kissing Hand" is what we read.
It's about a raccoon
Who did just as his parents said.

Like the raccoon's first day at school
I was scared and a little shy.
But because of what you said
I was brave and I got by.

All through the year
I'll make more things for you.
So as I change and as I learn
You can see my growth, too!

~ Lauren

Hi Rushie.... thought I would come in and share my "Light in The Window" poem that I wrote for a painting I did...The painting is of an old home place with a light shining from the window just at break of dawn...
Painted and written in memory of my Mother who passed away in 1973.
Hope you like the poem...
God bless
Nyoka

THe Lighted Window
by Nyoka Smith 2001

In the fast-paced days of my youth
I so often from home would stray,
and be gone till the light had faded
and oft times till the break of day.

In those times my mom would lie reading
and wait and I think sometimes pray
till again all her children were home
and safe in their beds would lay.

Now I wish I could once more see
her sweet face as she lay there
sometimes lightly sleeping
with her hands folded as if in prayer.

To once again find her waiting
it would mean the world, you know
to once more be led homeward
by her light shining from the window.

Thirty Days Hath September

All the rest have thirty-one,
But February has twenty-eight alone,
Except in leap year, that痴 the time
When February痴 days are twenty-nine.

A Smile

It grows in a wreath
All around the front teeth-
Thus preserving the face from congealing.

Forever In Your Heart
Author Unknown.


Although you池e not their mother
You care for them each day.
You cuddle, sing and read to them
And watch them as they play.
You see each new accomplishment
You help them grow and learn.
You understand their language,
You listen with concern.
They come to you for comfort,
And you kiss away their tears.
They proudly show their work to you,
You give the loudest cheers!
No, you are not their mother,
But your role is just as strong.
You nurture them and keep them safe,
Though maybe not for long.
You know someday the time will come,
When you will have to part.
But you know each child you cared for,
Is forever in your heart!

.A CHILDCARE PROVIDER.
By Author Unknown.


A willing partner for working moms,
She comforts, pampers, soothes and calms.
With all the love she has to share,
She痴 great to have when mommy can稚 be there.


She loves to rock a fussy child,
Corrects the one that gets too wild.
She hears her share of tearful pleas,
And comforts those with skinned up knees.


With little children she plays games of peek,
For bigger ones it痴 hide and seek.
She is an expert at each game,
But somehow loses just the same.


She helps them learn the alphabet,
And gives them hugs when they池e upset.
She gently tucks them in their beds,
With dreamland tales for sleepyheads.


She is a true and trusted friend,
Who helps them learn and play pretend.
Although she痴 paid, it痴 plain to see,
She serves them with a love that痴 free.

Preschool Graduation Poem
Author Unknown.


I致e worked with your flower and helped it to grow
I知 returning it now but, I want you to know,
This flower is precious as dear as can be.
Love it, take care of it, and you will see a bright bloom with everyday.
It grows and blossoms in a wonderful way.
In August-a bud, mid-term a bloom,
Now a lovely blossom-I知 returning in June.
Remember this flower as dear as can be,
Though rightfully yours, part belongs to me

Bus Driver Poem
by Carolyn Henry.


He is a special person, I知 sure you値l all agree
He痴 the kind of person, I wanted him to be.


He is very responsible, in caring for your child
He won稚 let them be rowdy, and they can稚 be wild.


He drives the bus they ride on, each and every day
He makes sure they are careful, on the bus when they play.


He does your job for you, when you send them out the door
They are his to care, Until they are home once more.

Do you ever think about him, and the job he does for you
Do you ever say Thank you, for watching all this crew.


He痴 not in it for the pay, there痴 not enough for that,
He wants to take care of them, and that is where its at.


Do you put yourself in his place, as you send them out the door
Do you know he worries, until they池e home once more?


That is your most precious possession, he is holding in his hand.
He knows this and wishes, someone would understand.


He is your School Bus Driver but don稚 you sell him short
He is caring for your children, and he痴 doing it from his heart.

Images of Thanksgiving Dinner

Some people see the turkey
Roasted to a golden brown.
Some people think of families

Some remember fondly
That there痴 no school for the day,

2. We bless the cold turkey sandwiches, sloshy cranberry sauce, and hard rolls.
3. We praise the turkey pie and vintage mixed veggies.
4. We thank the pilgrims for not serving bison that first time, or we壇 be celebrating Thanksgiving until April.
5. We gobble up cubed bird casserole and pray for a glimpse of a naked turkey carcass.
6. We show gratitude (sort of) to the creative cook who slings cashews at the turkey and calls it Oriental.
7. We forgive our forefathers and pass the turkey-nugget pizza.
8. The word 砺egetarian keeps popping into our heads.
9. We check our hair to make sure we池e not beginning to sprout feathers.
10. We hope that the wing meat kabobs catch fire under the broiler.
11. We smile over the creamed gizzard because the thigh bones are in sight.
12. We apologize for running out of turkey leftovers.

Default Children Bedrooms Scrapbook Poems

Do you have a photo of your girl child's bedroom? Here's a poem to go with it in your scrapbook!


Confusing
By Sara Holbrook


Confusing
is the story told
by the bureau
of a ten-year-old.
A baseball glove, a music box,
a china lamb, a couple socks,
Teen magazine and candy wraps,
and old stuffed dogs, a gun with caps,
bracelets, comb, pink nail polish,
a Barbie doll, a dirty dish,
nearby a chair is nearly dressed
with jeans and shorts
and Sunday best.
Above it all, a stickered mirror
reflects the kid who痴 growing here.
~~ <> @ <> ~~
For a boy's room!


Messy Room.
By Shel Silverstein.


Whosoever room this is should be ashamed!
His underwear is hanging on the lamp,
His raincoat is there in the overstuffed chair,
And the chair is becoming quite mucky and damp.
His workbook is wedged in the window,
His sweater's been thrown on the floor,
His scarf and one ski are beneath the TV,
And his pants have been carelessly hung on the door.
His books are all jammed in the closet,
His vest has been left in the hall,
A lizard named Ed is asleep in his bed,
And his smelly old sock has been stuck to the wall.
Whosoever room this is should be ashamed!
Donald or Robert or Willie or --
Huh? You say it's mine? Oh dear,
I knew it looked familiar!

Bless This House
By Helen Taylor. (Joshua 24:15)


Bless this house, O Lord we pray,
Make it safe by night and day;
Bless these walls, so firm and stout,
Keeping want and trouble out.


Bless this roof and chimneys tall,
Let Thy peace lie over all;
Bless this door, that it may prove
Ever open to joy and love.


Bless these windows shining bright,
Letting in God's heav'nly light;
Bless the hearth ablazing there,
With smoke ascending like a prayer.


Bless the people who dwell within,
Keep them pure and free from sin;
Bless us all that we may be
Fit, O Lord, to dwell with Thee.


Bless us all that one day we may dwell,
O Lord, with Thee.

I am hoping someone here can help me out. I am looking for a poem about a Christmas tree. It tells of a dream. When she wakes up, the white tree in the snow has a big red bow on top, with streamers, to remind us of Jesus blood. Best I can remember....I had it and must have ate it because now I can't find it! Anyway, thanks in advance for any help.

Is this it?

I had a dream one wintry night
As the moon was full and bright
The snow fell softly on a tree
That stood alone just like me
Then I saw Jesus walking by
His caring look caught my eye
He put a bow upon that tree
A symbol of His love for me
I woke up thinking of what I'd dreamed
Amazed at just how real it seemed
Then through my window I saw the bow
Crimson red on the pure white snow
with the ribbons flowing down the tree
Just like His blood He shed for me
I was in awe of the beautiful bow
Then I saw His
Footprints in the Snow

I saw the request and thought I've read that poem somewhere before, now where did I see it last? Angels helped me out! Thanks!

Definitions
By June Friend.

How would one define this three-letter word - art?
It's really quite difficult to start.

One usually thinks of something quite pretty;
Like a beautiful painting of people, landscape or a city.

Is art always done on canvas or paper?
Or can art include glass, pottery, wood or something else to savor?

Gee, this decision can really be tough.
It's most thought provoking and all of that stuff.

Whatever it is, it all comes from the heart;
Now isn't that a great place to start?

This poem would be great to use on a fall scrapbook page, using the colors mentioned within the poem.

Sweet Autumn
By Adelaide Dyson.

Sunlight
through the window
warms my neck,
belies the chill
in the air.

Autumn is here:
leaves turning
and falling ~
in the quiet
I can hear them fall,
Orange and red,
a carpet of gold.

Three yellow apples
still upon the tree.
Autumn, Sweet
Autumn
I love thee best.

There is a "Creative Faith" Bible study available from www.ChristianBibleStudies.com. One of the chapters is about poetry.
