FAITH 13 September 2008

I found this poem by the American poet John B. Tabb in a book of poetry published in 1926:

FAITH
John B. Tabb (18451909)

In every seed to breathe the flower,
In every drop of dew
To reverence a cloistered star
Within the distant blue;
To wait the promise of the of the bow
Despite the cloud between,
Is Faith the fervid evidence
Of loveliness unseen.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
