Test your skills as a poet.Write one poem per day throughout the month of April each year.
Have a thought, that you would like
to rhyme, and say with rhythm's best?
We have a month for you to strike
out, vanquishing each poet's test.

But if the rhyming, rhythm thing is not the way, that you would go,
then strike out on your own,
making words your tools to serve your own behest.

haikus speak of life
nature growing where it may
bloom in peace right now

We end with hymns of praise
to God, Who paid Salvation's fee.
We end these earthly days
a-leaning on the arms of He.

Amazing Grace of Greatest Friend, And Can it truly Be?
Unclouded Days He'll always send in Love He Lifted Me.

Diverted best when with my Lord,
I find secluded bliss
for in His hopeful, daily Word,
I feel the Savior's kiss.
