“THE MIRACLE (OR MURMUR) OF YOU[R VOICE]!”๐ŸŒผ

“THE MIRACLE (OR MURMUR) OF YOU[R VOICE]!” a poem written after singing: “Like the Murmur of the Dove’s Song,” p. 285, Presbyterian Hymnal! a.k.a.: “Like The Murmur Of The Dove’s (I Mean) Pheasant’s Song, Since I Couldn’t Get A Good Rhyme For DOVE, Except: Above, Love, Glove, Shove And Of! Sorry!” Sunday (01/20/19)

{“The Holy Spirit”* evidently provides both GIFTS & FRUITS! Miracles are, I think, considered “gifts!” When asked to specify a gift in his life, one young disciple replied: “ME;” another said: “Petting my dogs,” and a third: “Being able to open doors for people who can’t! Or – is that a FRUIT?” A better “trinity” of answers, I can not imagine!!}

One-gift-of-The(HOLY)Spirit – is a miracle!
“Do-you-do-miracles?”** “Well, I’m lyrical,
For, when a few nice words escape my lips,
It-seems-like-a-miracle – and words can launch ships,
And stay executions – and make children laugh,
And ENDEAR ME – to- my-BETTER-HALF!
My-body is a miracle; it HOUSES my voice!”
EVERYONE’S A MIRACLE – just-like-a-Rolls-Royce,
Which-is-a-miracle-to-behold, with its nifty horn!
It’s always a miracle, when a vehicle is born!
Every-voice-is-a-miracle, declaring:-“HE- I S-(the)-LORD!”
By The Holy Spirit,
salvation’s-always-poured,
Just like water – turning to wine;
Ev-er-y VOICE (pause) can-be so DIVINE;
IT-doesn’t-always-please – all-the-people-present,
Just-like-a-dead – or-dis-eased pheasant!!
But you can take the damaged pheasant home,
And, maybe, heal it – with – a healing poem,
And, if you can save the sweet bird’s life,
It might sing so beautifully – and-become your wife!
It’ll be A MIRACLE — if-(a charge of)-sodomy-you-can-avoid,
With your beautiful bird! Has The Spirit – toyed,
With-miracles (transformations) to-make all things “right?!”
SLEEP! WITH-YOUR-PHEASANT – EV-ER-Y NIGHT;
Whisper in-her-beak, with your (miraculous) voice, so soft,
And-by-a-miracle-she’ll-soon-join-you – in-The-Choir-Loft!
You-both-will-sing!-with-pretty-voice(s), as-she-is-now-a-(pretty)-dame,
But, of-course-to-GOD – it’s really all the same!
FOR GOD MANAGES TO-DO-MIRACLES -EVEN-WITH VOICES THAT HOWL!
So, it’s-really-not-a-big-thing – to-marry-you-off- to-a-beautiful-fowl!
