Bonnie posted a comment asking if the poems were my own. Yes, they are. I'm glad you enjoyed them. I love writing, but don't do it a lot. Here's another.
'Tis easy to look into the distance afore and behind
When on the mountaintop ourself we find.
But, in the valley down deep and low
'Tis only the here and the now we know.
If we but humbly look up to thee
You help us to more clearly see,
This lone vale wherein we stand
'Tis but the hollow of Thy hand.
This one seemed appropriate for our family and friends since we lost a much loved uncle over the weekend. He will be missed by all who knew him.
