I enjoyed reading this beautiful blank verse poem of faith this evening. It was like reading a devotion or a love poem to God. I loved your music references. I have always been in awe of Beethoven and his compositions. Your poem of Faith is a masterpiece.

Blessings
Janet

This is a good blank verse. I enjoyed the way it sounded to the ear and the fact there is no picture which leads the reader to appreciate the poem more. Thank you for posting this poem.

I love this poem of faith. An awesome blank verse.
Wonderful imagery throughout.
Strong iambic meter and good use of enjambment
keep it flowing smoothly.
God is with us always.

Nice job! I really liked the older style of English used. It really makes it more like something a poet from the 1700s or 1800s would've written. Gives it some atmosphere. And I agree that God is always with us. -Ninja

The elevation of one's spirit rises when reading this poetic, Ray. You do have a way of reaching the stars and perhaps Heaven itself with your words.
Bacchus, subtly fills our cups with wine, and he helps to mellow our moods as he salves the hurts of life away.
I have noticed this before that in some of your poems, you go with Olde English. I know that for many, it is a more exalted way of speaking, but in some cases - it gets in the way of YOUR words, which for the most part are good old plain English, spoken with eloquence. Words like DOTH feel a tad out of place.
I found DOTH in two places:
Beethoven's Ode to Joy doth fill my heart (perhaps:
How Beethoven's Ode to Joy fills my heart

and
e'er shifting, morphing glints that doth enchant.
e'er shifting, morphing glints that so enchant.

Just a thought, my friend. Your poetic is fine just the way it is.
Rose.

    Thanks so much, Rose, for this excellent review and your suggestions. I have edited 'doth enchant' to 'so enchant.' It does indeed read better. Thank you. I like your suggestion for the Beethoven's Ode line, but your suggestion throws off the iambics. I'll give thought to alternatives to 'doth' in that line. As always, Rose, I truly appreciate your keen, supportive reviews. I would give you a thumbs-up, but I've already used my six for the month. :( Thanks again, dear friend, for a great review.

This is an excellent testament of your faith. Even when our attention wanders, God is firmly fixed on us. This is a powerful ending,
each time I breathe fresh air.
I know that I shall never be alone;
my Lord's with me. - This is a brilliant entry for the contest.
Bless you
John

Some of the most profoundly people of faith I have know were two cousins of mine who were severely disabled. Never went to school, they encourage me yet today as I walk in faith with my Lord. I am sure when I enter Heaven these two cousins will be walking toward me with out stretched arms and we will have wonderful embraces. Patricia

Hi, Ray. This is a wonderful, inspiration for all. /What a great poem, my friend:

"I found within my heart
and soul God's love expressed to me through friends
and family. His worldly angels salved
my wounds and wrapped my heart with purest love
each day until my ballast was restored.
And thus I greet"


Sorry I have missed so much of your work...I was hospitalized with pnuemonia for a few days. Home now and on the mend. Good luck in the contest. Bob

    Thanks so much, Bob, for this very generous review. You've picked one of my two favorite verses in this poem. I've been the recipient of earthly angels many times. I'm distressed to hear you've been ill and hope you're on a fast-track of mending and healing. Hang in there!
