Heaven Is A Resting Place

Heaven Is A Resting Place Cover I reject the mortal fear
Which brings on doctrine-strife,
For I have seen with poet's eyes
The Door twixt Death and Life.
I know not what might lie beyond;
That time is yet to come.
Heaven is a resting-place,
A home to journey from.

The churchmen argue overmuch
On who is out and in,
On how they should be organized,
And how their neighbors sin.
The flag is not the nation;
The whole is more than sum;
Heaven is a resting-place,
A home to journey from.

When God is shrunk to fit a Church,
The Greater Part is lost,
The Holy Ghost too oft gets thrown
When "heathen trash" is tossed.
If God's knocked down to Patriarch,
Full half of God's struck dumb.
Heaven is a resting-place,
A home to journey from.

I shall fear not for my friends,
Nor worry for my kin,
And when I face that bright-lit Door
I'll joyfully go in.
All those dear to me will join
The Feast of Friends to come:
Heaven is a resting-place,
A home to journey from.

Witch Words Poems Of Magic And Mystery

Witch Words Poems Of Magic And Mystery Cover

Book: Witch Words Poems Of Magic And Mystery by Robert Fisher

A Collection of witch poems, spells and charms for everything from curing cramp to Banishing fear. The editor has compiled four other anthologies for children - "Pet Poems", "Ghosts Galore", "Amazing Monsters" and "Funny Folk". Grade 3 Up Enchantment abounds in this rich poetry collection filled with the magic and mystery promised by the book's subtitle. Fisher has chosen a wide variety of verses by authors ranging from Shakespeare to two nine year olds who capture the mood of this genre. Some selections are sinister or gory; others offer scary fun, intriguing riddles, or captivating nonsense. There are several incantations including the one from ``Macbeth.'' ``Witch Nastee Spella's Hallowe'en Stew'' by Wes Magee and ``Recipe'' by Shelagh McGee show the fun involved in using language. Both could easily trigger student attempts at original poetry. Included also are selections by masters such as Walter de la Mare, Robert Herrick, Robert Graves, and Eleanor Farjeon. Old English ballads provide poetic music. Felts' pen-and-ink illustrations come alive on each page, offering humor, wonder, and mystery. These round out an excellent anthology which, like Fisher's earlier collections, Amazing Monsters (1982) , Ghosts Galore (1983) , and Funny Folk (1986, all Faber) , could hook youngsters on poetry.

Another One For Jim Morrison

Another One For Jim Morrison Cover Where did he go, that vision-mad soul?
What did he see on his quest?
Who did he meet at the end of his night?
Why did he fail the test?

The shaman is old, a new must be found,
Take the young ones to a height.
Those who would be a shaman must jump.
The one who survives will be right.

He jumped--the serpent-strength filled his soul.
He jumped--the new lizard king.
He jumped--to the Lady he feared would be there.
He jumped--but rose not to take wing.

And I would now follow that worthy's descent,
would dare Medicine's dive.
For I love the path he blazed for us all,
But I, unlike him, shall survive.

jump--the snakes I feared buoy my soul.
jump--my spirit now sings.
jump--to the Lady I know will be there.
jump--can it be I've grown wings?
