A narrow fellow in the grass (#1096)


A narrow fellow in the grass
Occasionally rides;
You may have met him—did you not
His notice sudden is,
The grass divides as with a comb,
A spotted shaft is seen,
And then it closes at your feet,
And opens further on.
He likes a boggy acre,
A floor too cool for corn,
But when a boy and barefoot,
I more than once at noon
Have passed, I thought, a whip lash,
Unbraiding in the sun,
When stooping to secure it,
It wrinkled and was gone.
Several of nature’s people
I know, and they know me;
I feel for them a transport
Of cordiality.
But never met this fellow,
Attended or alone,
Without a tighter breathing,
And zero at the bone.

Carson City Week

Shakespeare’s in the Cracker Box
Looking for his lady love
Napoleon eats lunch at Peg’s
Leaves waitresses a glove

Patriots stroll through the Sportsman
To boost their supply of guns
Romans are lounging at the pool
When they hear the approach of the Huns

Mark Twain puffs cigars
Tells tales at the Firkin and Fox
Charlie Chaplin runs through the fountain
Albert Einstein checks the clocks

John Mackay rides the V&T
Down tracks from Virginia City
To dance with Marilyn Monroe
He says her face is pretty

John Wayne rides into town
To have his best and last hurrah
He’ll have one more shootout
In the name of the law

Leonardo lies sideways
Outside the community hall
The Mile High Jazz band
Plays for the Winter Ball

They tore down a gazebo
Judge said it must be so
The tourists are puzzled
About a shaded place to go

A painter teaches kids
How to hold a brush
As they learn to paint a canvas
He has a gentle touch

The drifters and the homeless–
A meal they can’t afford
Bridge Church feeds them for free
While people praise the Lord.

September 1
Holy Bible

Brothers, we
Don’t want you to be ignorant about

The ones who fall asleep, or to lament
Like other men, who have no hope, for we
Believe that Jesus died and rose again

And therefore we believe that God will bring
With Jesus those who fell asleep in him.
~First Thessalonians 4:13−14

Because the Lord himself will come down from
Heaven, with loud command, the archangel’s
Voice, and God’s trumpet call, and then the dead

In Christ will be the first to rise. Then we
Who are alive still and are left will be
Caught up together with them in the clouds

To meet the Lord in air, and so we will
Be with the Lord forever. So you too
Can comfort one another with this news.
~First Thessalonians 4:16−18

I’ll give my two witnesses
Power to prophesy twelve hundred sixty
Days, clothed in sackcloth; these two witnesses

Are the two olive trees and the two lampstands
That stand before the Lord who rules the earth.
If someone tries to harm them, fire bursts from

Their mouths and it devours their enemies.
~Revelation 11:3−5
