Don't limit my words to 14 lines!
What if I offer 40 whines?
What if my heart stirs 80 times?
Will you limit me to lesser rhymes?
But I digress, to make the best
of fourteen lines, to pass the test
A Shakespeare clone I cannot be
for nonsensical words fly 'round in me
and make no sense, and so I must
count to fourteen and then to trust
that I come out even, lest I find
that I've lost the urge to sonnet rhyme
and gosh-o-gee I'm out of time
to stay with thee, paeon sublime!
Grace - GOD'S Power!
"Of the merciful kindness by which God, exerting his holy influence upon souls, turns them to Christ, keeps, strengthens, increases them in Christian faith, knowledge, affection, and kindles them to the exercise of the Christian virtues."
