Blue Monday: Books

Detail from a mural at the Prescott Public Library, Prescott, Arizona
 


A stack of good books by your bed
Is better than any old med.
So, here’s to your health,
Vim, vigor, and wealth—
Make sure that you get them all read!

On a shady walk
a question goes unanswered
until six o’clock.

Rose of Wisdom

A gnarled tree beside a path at Willow Lake, Prescott, Arizona

 

By the lake a pathway leads
Through the dry and tangled weeds
To a place where no one goes
But the ones who seek The Rose.
 
Holy, holy is the day!
Holy, holy is the way!

 
Rose of wisdom, fair and pure,
May your root and branch endure
In the hearts that hold you fast—
There, O Rose, bloom forth at last.
 
Holy, holy is the day!
Holy, holy is the way!

One by one the stones
drop from the old house’s walls
till nothing remains.

even the blooming thistle
will soon fade away

a mountain in the distance
seems to shrug and shift

Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

Tell the wanderers
that their tears are safe with Me,
