Marshmallow Child


Friendly Fairy Tales

Small snow man with carrot nose and backstretches stick arms, all dusted with new snow

Another snow day!
Kids rush out to play.
Jump, hop and slide,
roll, tunnel and hide.
In they come, solid white,
stamp, stomp, shake,
drip, drop, gloves flop,
shiny puddles inside.
Layers off, smiles wide.
Hot chocolate and soup,
tired eyelids droop.
But food and giggles revive.
They just need to take five.
Outside boys and girls go,
carrot above, sticks below,
forming something wild,
a marshmallow child.

Note: Another snow day, another day of sledding, careening, snowbank reigning. Winter weather makes for fun. Hope you are warm and happy, wherever you may be.

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?.
