I am just a young black bird,
Waiting high in the tree.
For someone to find me and help me,
A teacher is what I will need.
As I am just a young black bird,
No matter what I will say.
I know nothing of anything,
And a teacher I will obey.
Teach me all that I need,
To survive among the sky and the trees.
I will listen to what I am told,
You're wisdom will put me at ease.
I know that teaching a young bird is difficult,
And this I am very sure.
But I promise to leave stubborn and negativity,
At home, so that I, a black bird can mature.
So please teach me all you know.
Teach me everything you can.
For all I want is to be a good black bird,
One with skills that will help me to stand.
And finally teach me to thank the Lord
For all that I have and do
For blessings from above
Teach me the principle of gratitude.
that a book which has been so long
in the possession of mankind
should contain many truths
as yet undiscovered."
God Be In My Head
by Sarum Primer
God be in my head,
and in my understanding;
God be in mine eyes,
and in my looking;
God be in my mouth,
and in my speaking;
God be in my heart,
and in my thinking;
God be at mine end,
and at my departing.
education in itself."
by John Wesley
"I am a creature of a day.
I am a spirit come from God,
and returning to God.
I want to know one thing:
the way to heaven.
God himself has condescended to
teach me the way.
He has written it down in a book.
Oh, give me that book!
At any price give me the book of God.
Let me be a man of one book.
a plan of God."
This poem discusses the bible and how some people look at it.
More Than A Dead Letter
By Phillips Brooks
The Bible is like a telescope.
If a man looks through his telescope,
Then he sees the worlds beyond;
But if he looks at his telescope,
Then he does not see anything but that.
The Bible is a thing to be looked through,
To see that which is beyond;
But most people only look at it;
And so they see only the dead letter.
which have ever been printed."
This poem reminds us that with the good comes the bad, but our attitude towards it will determine our happiness.
Poet: John McLeod
The wild sea sang,
Speaking of wave and wind and ageless wisdom
And sand blew in my ears
The gull loped low
Dancing a ballet on the heavy sparkling crests
And clouds expressed my fears
A curlew voiced
The cry as lonesome as my need to justify
And sadness showed its tears.
A quiet friend spoke,
To say, "God gave you life, good comes with bad,"
Fate is not quite as strange as it appears!
A Newsletter Ad To Use
Poet: John McLeod, (c)1999
November days. . .and mystic ways. . .towards the days ahead,
Don't doubt the greys, the shadowy maze, or where you feet are led,
Instead, look to the playful sun whose merry dancing gleam
Will lift the heart, and warmth impart to make the shadows seem
Far less intense, toil less immense, and cares a bagatelle
To juggle sweet on nimble feet where laughter's healing spell
Casts its own wondrous net of joy, its shawl of warmth and love
Wrapped all around with Hope profound
From God above.
Go forth to meet the shadowy future, without fear."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
