I learned from a friend that April 29 is Poem in Your Pocket Day. So, Dennie, here’s a poem for your pocket.
You may listen to me read the poem via the player below.
I need a poem for my pocket One that I can take with me One that turns into a rocket Shoots me up and out and free. One that lifts my eyes to heaven Enables me to see Words that work in me like leaven Or root me like a tree My pocket holds an iPhone Some change and several keys But my pocket needs a poem To put my mind at ease So here’s a poem for your pocket One to take where’er you go A promise in a locket A promise you should know. His word is written in you Is seed a Sower’s sown It spouts and grows within you Till you become a poem That sings His Hallelujah Or weeps in sad lament Leaves speechless in the awe Of the gospel-Word He’s sent Like a poem in the pocket Of His waistcoat near His breast You’re sealed in the locket Of His love, near his heart, and blessed. © Randall Edwards 2021
