For a dollar or two she bought

Him  the works of Sir Walter Scott…

A poetry tome

That needed a home,

So that is what it has got.

He peeked inside with wonder

And who would guess he’d blunder

Upon engraved plates

With very old dates

And captions printed there-under?

“The Lay of the Last Minstrel” bard

Runs six cantos, if a yard…

He skipped to the end

Though he does intend

To read the whole thing, by your “pard.”

The former owner one sees

Was from the eighteen eighties..

Of estate sale swag

His friend bought a bag

And that’s how it came, him to please.

Who thought, in two thousand-eleven,

He’d find English poetry heaven…

Not since his school days

Was he lost in the haze

Of a Master’s creatively leavened!

—-Jonathan E, Caswell

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
