Book Week 22 - in Memoriam







Day is done,
gone the sun,
From the hills,
from the lake,
From the skies.
All is well,
safely rest,
God is nigh.


Go to sleep,
peaceful sleep,
May the soldier
or sailor,
God keep.
On the land
or the deep,
Safe in sleep.


Love, good night,
Must thou go,
When the day,
And the night
Need thee so?
All is well.
Speedeth all
To their rest.



Fades the light;
And afar
Goeth day,
And the stars
Shineth bright,
Fare thee well;
Day has gone,
Night is on.


Thanks and praise,
For our days,
'Neath the sun,
Neath the stars,
'Neath the sky,
As we go,
This we know,
God is nigh.






Freedom's Colors

by Roger Hancock

Red is for Bravery;
blood shed in sacrifice.
Freedom came with lives the price.


White is for Liberty;
freedom's purity.
Life be free from God's decree.


Blue is for Justice;
as vast as the sky.
Over freedom's land to occupy.

  1. I've gotten way behind on my reviews & have 7 books here, read & waiting to review. So, you should see 7 links from me this week. That'll bring me to book 19, so I'm just a little behind in my reading.
