 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Think of your Creator,

In the days of your youth;

Your officiator,

And holder of the truth.


While the evil days,

Come not nor do the years;

Causing someone that strays,

Without having the fears.


But I have no delight,

Without pleasure in them;

Being done out of spite,

Not feeling to condemn.


While the sun or moon,

Not darkened as the clouds;

Knowing the rain comes soon,

While drenching the crowds.


On the day the keepers,

Of the house shall shiver;

They will be the weepers,

As God will deliver.


The mighty men will bow,

The women who grind cease;

For God will not allow,

The light till there is peace.


The doors at the street close,

As sound from the mill fades;

Just the sound of the crows,

No song comes from the maids.


They are afraid of heights,

And dangers on the street;

Dark without any lights,

The evil you could meet.


The almond tree will bloom,

Grasshoppers lose their spring;

For God still has not doom,

From the chaos they bring.


The dust returns to earth,

As at one time had been;

Allows to bring new birth,

Revitalizing again.


As the spirit returns,

For it is all fruitless;

Vanity that one learns,

A style as useless.
