YES! A BOY’S TOWN

High in the hills

Yamagata, Japan.

Christian!  Can you believe it?

I was there!  I can!

.

.

One road up, the same road down!

Sure discourages the traffic!

Protestant mostly, A Catholic Priest I was

Acquainted with both!

.

.

Priest had been there since World War I!

So very pleasant our visit there,

Two rooms, His cottage spotless, clean!

Pleasant that hill everywhere!

.

.

Amazing little difference theologically

Soon a boy entered, bowed low,

Asking permission to take a trip,

Of course, Priest let him go.

.

.

Smiling whimsically, Priest explained

“He saw you enter, was curious,”

I doubt very much planned trip but

If I said no, he would be furious!

.

.

Respected this priest who could see both sides

Yet, not compromise the fact

Jesus crucified, buried, but up from tomb

His Deity, sure, intact!

.

.

Then Protestant family name ‘Nakada’

He only doctor for miles.

She, Daisy, educated Stateside many

Many degrees and her smile!

.

.

About 6 years later, we met again

On Lindsay,  California.

She aware of a Japanese community,

Mutual delight!  I must say!

.

.

Of course we showed her off!  Everywhere

But went alone to the Japanese.

“They still ashamed of their nation’s part

In The War to End…”  The freeze!

.

.

Only war, this boy cared foretell

To end all!  Armageddon, Rev. 16:16,

Before this, though, we will meet one another

In a better land, Heaven!

.

.

Hallelujah!

.

.

just me:  the Sam 01.24.12

(I want to be ready!)
