Arcturus,

When I saw this poem ...† It reminded me of the vision that you had.


In Memory of a Happy Day in February
By Anne BrontŽ (1820 - 1849)

Blessed be Thou for all the joy
My soul has felt today!
O let its memory stay with me
And never pass away!

I was alone, for those I loved
Were far away from me,
The sun shone on the withered grass,
The wind blew fresh and free.

Was it the smile of early spring
That made my bosom glow?
'Twas sweet, but neither sun nor wind
Could raise my spirit so.

Was it some feeling of delight,
All vague and undefined?
No, 'twas a rapture deep and strong,
Expanding in the mind!

Was it a sanguine view of life
And all its transient bliss≠
A hope of bright prosperity?
O no, it was not this!

It was a glimpse of truth divine
Unto my spirit given
Illumined by a ray of light
That shone direct from heaven!

I felt there was a God on high
By whom all things were made.
I saw His wisdom and his power
In all his works displayed.

But most throughout the moral world
I saw his glory shine;
I saw His wisdom infinite,
His mercy all divine.

Deep secrets of his providence
In darkness long concealed
Unto the vision of my soul
Were graciously revealed.

Oh Snowfire

....what a beautiful and welcome gift!

You know, there is nothing so sweet to me as pure, genuine, clean,  unaffected kindness.

I see that Anne Bronte lived only 29 years! Oh how sweet her sleep if in her life she knew such beauty!....

...and she will wake to the author of her life and sweet lover of her soul who shone such radiant a prose into her heart set to repose and then to sleep,  her powerful words no more to keep but set on course and into time where she via you would bring her rhyme. 

Snowfire....thank you to the God of beauty that caused you to send that to me.....It brought tears to my eyes at the extraordinary closeness in thinking that is visible in Anneís poem ..........

It appears that both you and Anne know me. Anne for having shared something intimate about herself that is very acquainted to feelings I have not written but have felt and you for recognition of the essence of meaning in beauty beyond the  temporal plane of existence.

Peace to you

Arcturus :)

What beautiful poetry everyone...awesome!!  I use to write a lot of poetry when I was younger but have let it go over the years.  But all of you have inspired me to pick up the pen and try my hand at it again!!  Stay tuned....

In the meantime I wanted to share not a poem but the lyrics to a song I really love:

Lost At Sea

by Jimmy Needham

How could you see what you see
and not totally
Want to discontinue me
for all eternity and then some
It bothers me so that I could be so
Completely unaffected when connected to the holy one
And so I sit here and stare at this page
and wonder at what age
it will become clear to me
So for now I am clueless
to how you do this
And how you move this spirit in me

Chorus:
Iím going Your way
Even though I cannot see in front of me
 Iím going Your way
Even though I feel lost at sea


How could your favor be the flavor I savor
When the fruits of my labor are so unfavorable
And old pages
are setting the stages
for something outrageous
A man who can save all our souls

Ride the wave, wave goodbye, by the way did I mention today
That I donít know the way home
So could you take me by the hand
and lead me to the dryer land
So I can finally breathe again instead of sinking like a stone
And now I will diligently
and not religiously
but affectionately
come before the throne of your grace
in this place and seek your face
For all eternity and then some




{You can listen to the song if you like at this site:

Just click on the song title:  Lost at Sea, underneath the player on the right}

Peace,
Diana

Another song I love...

Face of Time

by Jason Upton


I can remember when I was afraid like you
Not so long ago
Confusion ruled my life wondering what to do
Not so long ago

These are resting waves from a memory
In a hiding place in my mind
But the sweetest taste is a history
When suffering wears the face of time

The pain hurt way too much the water was so cold
Not so long ago
Thatís when light rescued me from darkness I was free
Not so long ago

In the place of suffering
Thereís a God worth worshipping
On these wings of worship we will ride...

Hello Diana

I went to listen to that "Lost as Sea"song. I believe it captures the feeling most of us have when we begin to realise that we are lost in the sea of humanity! Thank you for the link. I couldn't help thinking that the song is also singing out elsewhere perhaps even at the same time in the home of a dear brother or sister here in the Forum!....I think we can all relate to the lyrics before we were blessed to find Bible Truths! :D 

Peace to you

Hello Snowfire

For you. Donít know who wrote itÖ..

Before the body
Before the story
Before the Name
Beyond the mindís attempt to find or explain
Before the breath
Beyond the sense of pleasure or of pain
And after death
And after death I AM

Within the heart
The whole and part
Of everything I see
Behind the eyes
Beyond the skyís
Reflecting Me
At the silent core
And yet before phenomenon began
Oh and after it
And after it  I AM

Many differences separate us on the surface yes
But I cannot find a boundary in consciousness
And when you ask me
Where does awareness begin and does it end?
I have to say
I have to say
I have to sayÖ.Iíve always been.

Within the body
Without the body and not subject to
Changing moods, states of health, points of view.
Without these, before deeds and the monuments of man
Oh and after them
After them I AM

Many differences separate us on the surface yes
But I cannot find a boundary in consciousness
And when you ask me
Where does awareness begin and does it end?
I have to say
I have to say
I have to sayÖ.Iíve always beenÖÖ

At the silent core
And yet before phenomenon began
Oh and after it
After it I AM

...Of The Mind



I can't seem to choose a side
There's this war, deep inside


I'm being pulled from left to right
How much longer must I fight?

I can't seem to understand
On this battlefield I stand

Fought not with physical swords
But with thoughts and with words

How do you defeat an enemy
that you can not even see?

If only I can leave it all behind
for this is all.... of the mind

Arcturus,

I've discovered that the opening stanz "Before the body, before the story, before the name... comes from  a beautiful song entitled ďI AmĒ by poet, songwriter, and guitarist Kirtana (pronounced Keer-tah-na).

Again, thanks for sharing this with me.

Yes that is correct Snowfire

I had lost that information.
If ever you get the chance tolisten to that piece of music it is really worth it! Hope you do! Now I can go and purchase the CD again! Thank you!

Peace to you

Arcturus :)
