Logs of Pine

What cruel Grand Design

with simple logs of pine

could give to the divine

sacrifice of life for mine

a life so full of sinful crime

yet now saved for all of time

by the suffering of David’s line

and blood that once turned water into wine?

I will serve him and so shine

the light of Christ and the divine

to show the world, saved for all of time

what work was done with logs of pine.


About The Lost Poet

I write because I find inspiration. It is my hope that through my writing some connections may be felt. Everything I write comes from my experiences with life, and with the people that I love. I try to remember to see myself in everyone, and everyone in myself.

    well expressed.. the sentiment reminds me of how we cremate the dead here.. on logs of firewood.. its sort of tradition I think..
