#PoeticThursday . . . . To A Rose

ah….creativity in full flower!

Purplerays

Ah! Beautiful Rose!
To me thy petals oft disclose
The flaming Beauty of the tender rays
That in the Master’s Sun I praise!
.
Beautiful Rose–sweet Rose of tender Truth
That all is Life Forevermore! Oft in my youth
Beside thy ope’ning petals I would lie
Wrapt in the Beauty of thy softness! I
Would gaze upon you as a lover would, and you
Would sweetly, earnestly my raptures view!
.
Ah! Rose! Most Beautiful Rose!
In thee so tender–God’s Repose
Must surely be–so pure, Sweet Rose, art thou!
Dear Rose, accept my humble praises! How
The love of thee remains, Sweet Rose–in absence, too–
For thou art pure, Kind Rose–all pure and true!

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?.
