STINKING OF SOLDER AND SWEAT

Stinking of solder and sweat,

He progressed on his train set…

Most feeder lines

Soldered over time,

And most track pieces are set!

He helped the wife with clothes,

Nearly seven loads…

Plus a walk

Opportune to talk,

With the neighbors he knows.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner,

They didn’t get any thinner…

Healthy foods

Keep attitudes,

When tired from growing grimmer!

Liberally with OLD SPICE,

Made his Monday smell nice…

Not like a flower–

He still needs a shower–

But for now it will have to suffice!

–Jonathan 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 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?.
