Forty Bits of Verse

An idea to my mind was sent
for Lent
To share heaven’s Light
I’ll write
Some might be long, others terse
forty bits of verse
Some might be great, some are worse
There are days it’s hard to write at all
Other days out words just fall
For Lent I’ll write forty bits of verse

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. “Some are great, some are worse…” I am curious as to which of your poems you adore, whether because they were fun/cathartic to write or because you liked how they turned out, and which ones you’d rather try again. I’d be interested in reading them.

    • Okay, so here are some of my favorites of my own poems:
      Darkness to Light – I like this because it was the first I wrote that really showed how God had found me in my depression.
      Before the Throne – I like this one because it is so reverent and beautiful. It often runs through my head as I fall asleep at night.
      Cerulean Sky – Because it was cathartic to write.

      Ones I think need work include:
      The Spiritual Legacy of C.S. Lewis – Because I didn’t give it as much thought as I should have. I just kind of threw it together.
      Some of What I Know – This one just really doesn’t work for me, not sure why.
      Out of Words – This one is just silly. It filled the need to write a poem every day for NaPoWriMo, but that’s about it.
      And some of my older acrostic poems I don’t really like as much. They seem to forced.
      Anyway, I could add a lot more on both lists, but this is a good start. 🙂
