What Kind of Poem

What Kind of Poem?

I can write a poem
Even make it rhyme
But musical speech
Evades this old mind.

Will what I write have meaning -
Something to make people think?
Will there be time remaining
For them to stand on the brink?

The old writing may sound like preaching,
More natural to me as I go.
For most of this life I was reaching
Trying to reach those needing God so.

Now, in our old age, should we try to change so,
Write frivolous poems just to make people smile
So that none of God’s wisdom from pen should flow?
We can do both and honor God all the while.
