Poems for Reflection and Discussion

Sunrise on Nature

h o p e

By Josie Whitehead


Hope’s the fiery, dancing light

     Which beams across the mind.

It’s there to lift us when depressed -

      God’s gift to humankind.


Hope sharpens our assumptions

     And hope lifts the human heart.

It illuminates the road ahead

     When it’s time to make that start.


When storms bombard our human lives

     And the future seems unclear,

It’s hope that sees us safely through

     And drives away our fear.


It’s the truest friend you’ll ever have

     When moving to your goal

And hope, like love, was given by God,

      To bless our human soul.
