SHE WOULDN’T HELP CARRY IT.

WHEN YOU’RE MARRIED…!

By the Mighty Mumford

My family’s aluminum canoe,

Was something I wanted to do…

But a girl said “no”

She would not go,

Even one wet shirt wouldn’t do!

By myself I couldn’t lift

And maneuver the family gift…

E’en though we’d marry

She refused to carry,

Our canoe o’er a single portage lift!

So, I had to leave it there,

Less chances of mountain lake air…

I’m up a creek

With no canoe of which to speak,

With my cane, forest walking takes care!

–J. 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?.
