Poems: Wild Flower; Lonesome Star

by James Collins (author's profile)


[sunflower print out.]
Wild Flower!
You are a piece of work
As delightful as an old tree
Beautiful as one of His wild flowers
You are like a ripple on the water
Always on the move
God's grace is good to you
You are His light upon a hill
His speaker in desolation
A comfort to women's labor pains
A friend to all that know you
Thanks for being God's piece of work.

—James Collins

[loosely laced star.]
Lonesome Star!
Maple leaves dance the twist and twirl
Upon the ground they go...
Ending up where the wind goes!
Coverings for some to bed
The moon whispers
To all creeping things
Play, my children, within the night
Celebrate and follow the lonesome star
That shines in the sky
Wanderers have followed in days of old
Finding a baby's manager

—James Collins
