OLD MILL (OUR POETRY CORNER, DECEMBER 5, 2011)

OLD MILL A-BUILDING

By

Jonathan Caswell

It was once called Hayward-Schuster

And in its day it “use-ter”

Make fabric from bales

Of  wool for sales

Its mill whistle a regular rooster.

But it’s been for sale quite a while

As recycled fabric lost style…

Security’s kept

Its watch as time crept

A-waiting for fortune to smile.

Then yesterday, driving by,

The latest rumor to fly

May becoming true

For out of the blue

There were MEN removing things from up high!

Local maker of envelopes

Is expanding and raising hopes

That the mill so forlorn

May be reborn

Avoiding that slippery down-slope.

Though whistles no longer command

A mill worker’s day close at hand,

It will be nice to view

This old building living too,

Prosperity here will take a stand.

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 strength...to 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 it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
