Give a thought please, He does when I need,

He is the master poet!  I just follow His lead!

Hemmingway, London, a few others I know

Come to the forefront then there is Whittier to show.

Sure, thoughts contrive to come with meaning

But the meaning is weak only just seeming—

In backward, turn backward, oh time in thy flight,

Make me a child again just for one tonight.

With no growing continuity!

Died for us!  What more could He do?

He suffered, I think, with every breath!
