That night the snow came down.

It covered the branches,

But left the bottom brown.

And piled up on limb and twig

Until they looked,

Twice as big

As real life.

It’s “kind-a” funny you know,

What shapes we see,

After a snow.   –eab, 12/’64

Written while working on my Bachelors (in literature) at God’s Bible School, Cincinnati, OH.

…There is no holiness for man unless it is based on the holiness of God.

                – L. D. Wilcox, Profiles in Wesleyan Theology (Salem, OH: Schmul, 1985), 65.

 

There is always in it [act of sin] an attitude of defiance and rejection of authority and the decision to go “one’s own way.

Heather C B Dickinson was born 11/6/1973, in Marion, Ohio the younger daughter of the Edgar A Bryans.  Phillip, as an engagement gift painted (three different size pens, pointillism*) a large portrait of Heather and upon her saying “yes” (in the Black Hills of South Dakota) gave it to her.  They as, I hope you see, are happily married.  103 may sound fantastic but Heather’s paternal grandma is 101 and counting.  SEE HEATHER’S HIGHLIGHTS (Blogroll)

Warm, and cooling in the evening,

Grass dry, and browning,

Wind full, and blowing;

Ah! – Indian Summer.

 

Clouds white, and billowing,

Trees all hues, and bending,

Last rose lone, and fading,

Autumn everywhere.

 

Walnuts and hickories falling,

Little red one-rooms swelling;

Clear-toned bells ringing,

The best is here.

 

Leaves green – now yellowing,

Yellow – now browning,

Red and varying,

Each a color to share.

 

Reaping and harvesting,

Gathering and storing;

Careful and preserving,

Now fields are bare.

 

Once and short lasting,

Each year returning,

Beautiful and heart churning,

Lovely, lovely, Indian Summer.   -eab, 10/1964

O beautiful, beautiful lesser light;

Made by God the rule the night,

I see thee on thy continuous flight,

Showing the clouds, as a furrow plowed.

 

Now vapor has hid the wondrous glow,

The obliqueness of the cloud to show,

But slowly conquer o’er the foe,

And light comes down, from thy crown.

  

So ride thou on through the night sky;                            

May men, like me, always “where and why,”

Thy greatness, as you effortlessly fly.

Thou shining orb, our thoughts absorb.

 

Mysterious, Inspiring, Mobile Sphere.

Solitary, Polished, Sentinel of the Exosphere.   -eab, 4/1966

“Politics, election returns, Associated Press dispatches, questions of reform and many other matters can and will, if we are not careful, become switch-lines to take the Divine electricity out of our souls.”
