The Daffodil
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Colan L. Hiatt
Other Poems by Colan L. Hiatt

          "The Daffodil"

It's March again as I survey
Scenes around the old home place
It's been vacant now for several years
Sands of time, have changed it's face

How sad to see how fleeting years
Cause structures to deteriorate
Memory impels me face the fact
Likewise our bodies do relate

Beside the house, still standing there
Something special caught my eye
A yellow daffodil sprang forth
Bathed by sunlight from the sky

Mom planted it some years ago
By God's care, it was not bound
To relinquish life to winters scorn
A touch of spring, made it rebound

If I could be like the daffodil
And arise from what appeared defeat  
I could offer hope for the weary heart
Gloom and dismay would then retreat

So Lord, I'm asking that You would
Empower me with strength and zeal
To sow good seed that would produce
And help some aching heart to heal

About the Poet
I live in N.C., and have been writing poetry for several years. Writing is the greatest "outlet" I have ever experienced to release my inner emotions, and express my stance on spiritual issues. Most compositions, are derived from observing "down-to-earth" events that occur around us. Many offer a personal "mini-story" with a metaphor of spiritual implications that portray God as the ultimate solution to life's problems. My goal is that any and all compositions will present Christ and His sacrifice at Calvary as the solution to problems encountered along our journey.
