The Lady of Shabbat


Buckets on a Barefoot Beach

Hung in the golden galaxy

below the starry clusters bright

the moon heard a whisper say

no other care hath she

The Lady of “Shabbat”

Merrily a royal cheer

a skimming song, a carol holy

robed in snowy white

water lilies in starry trailing light

floated down to Camelot

Who is this? and what is here?

like to some of stars we see

by garden wall and gallery

robed in willowy hills and fields

The lady of “Shabbat”

Moving through a mirror clear

in the dazzling crystal river

she has heard a whisper say

” She has a lovely face

God in his mercy lend her grace”

Under tower and balcony of Camelot
the Lady of “Shabbat”


(Found poem from the Lady of Shallot …1842…Alfred Lord Tennyson)

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?.
