SOFP Entry!

Hey everyone! We've got another SOFP guest post! This is by my dear friend Olivia Bell (thanks Livy!!)! I hope you enjoy this beautiful poem as much as I did!

 

The Seasons are changing

The Lord has put the earthly seasons into motion

They come and go with or without emotion

It starts with the coming of winter, the season of snow and ice

When the powder falls it looks very nice

All the excited children run outdoors to play

In the sparkling white of the blustery day

Skiing and snowboarding at daring high speeds

Having enough thrills and excitement to satisfy their needs

The glistening white snow stays only for a short while

Leaving behind nothing but a dirty, brown pile

Everyone is ready for spring to have sprung at last

Planting their gardens when the threat of frost has passed

Colorful flowers sprouting up and blooming

Harvesting time is soon to be looming

Summer has now arrived, swelteringly hot

All the children go swimming, as they have been taught

At the end of the hot day people enjoy cold ice cream

Everyone is so happy this could be a dream

Then all of the trees turn to bright fall colors

Harvesting time comes and everyone helps their mothers

With the canning and preserving of their God-given food

When all the sudden winter has once again ensued

The Seasons keep right on going by fast

None of them ever really seem to last

That’s the way it certainly will be

Forever into eternity

 

Now let's hear from you!

Shout Out to Fellow Poets (SOFP) Entry!

by Grace 10. June 2017 19:50

Hey everyone! Here's the first SOFP submission ever! This poem is by Lizbeth Erazo. (Thanks Lizbeth!) I really enjoyed it, and I hope you do too! Be sure to let her know what you think in the comments!

Old For New

What was torn you mend again
You redesign the tattered thread by thread
You take the broken and destroyed
You rebuild, You make whole


Joy begin to rise
Hope begin to light the dark
Our God exchanges old for new
Dawn has conquered night
Death has lost to life
And now we are exchanging old for new

You turn our flame into a fire
In You we walk in the impossible
We take Your love into the world
We let our light shine, we let it burn


There’s nothing that Your love won’t do
There’s not a mountain faith can’t move
There’s power in the blood
The power of the cross

Now let's hear from you!
