“Mercy’s All”….a poem by Linda Willows

OWOMANFR54591kenp

Come forth, come out you whispered wail,
I hear the heart that pours the tale.
Memories tumble in haunted detail;
They hold, they sting, they cling to the veil.

Yet-“Forward leading, Love preceding…
All brings hope in the dawn of today.
Might receiving, Grace exceeding,
Lord, your yoke is Mercy’s way.”

We suffer the mortal humblings that gain
an entry to the threshold of glory, not pain.
Pray that our hearts be brave, never slain…
and victor of all of Thy Kingdom in Reign.

And-“Forward leading, Love preceding;
All bear the Name that heard His Call.
Mortal Hearts be lifted, gifted…
Suffer no more within Mercy’s All.”

“Heart of Peace”….. a poem by Linda Willows

zf17678269-mdHansPeters

Oh Soul, you surge, you arch in love
in gentle passion’s reach above…

For Heavens’ quest is nearer than
the length of Love, the Heart of Man.

Find me turning, find me Out
The Glory called, my name; Devout.

I hear the thunder of Joys’s rain,
Clouds part asunder, Light to gain.

Oh Soul, you let the every part,
come forward, bow and then depart.

Naked stillness forms the glove
of Godly Peace..given to Love.
