A Soldiers’ War Prayer
By Miles A Moody

Hold tight thine own fair lovely.
Breathe deep, pray never let her go,
And gaze on yonder darkness marching;
Declare to me the sky shan’t snow.

Let not the thunder thine heart startle.
Recall how blessed the breeze did blow 
As waves in scented hair of flaxen,
In crimson blush – how skin should glow.

Though banners hail a brother’s dying
Tares felled as before the farmer’s hoe.
Shoulder now the reaper’s turning, 
And kiss the pale cold lips of woe.

Now look beyond the utter darkness falling,
And bind fast thine heart in the coming flow.
That naught numb thee to her fond arrival.
May her gentle touch take thee in tow.

Glory in the Highest

I couldn’t help myself—I know the title isn’t original—but the movie had such a positive impact on me as a child and that title has haunted me in a good way ever since.

God only knows how long that little Fir Tree has clung to this rock escarpment – like a naturally occurring Banzai Tree, I suspect. Only a couple of feet in height, it has probably weathered every kind of storm that mother nature can fling at the side of Grandfather Mountain. I would like to imagine that just now, this stooped and bedraggled little ole lady of a thing is feeling like it has all been worth it. It’s not hard for me to hear the theme song to the ‘Sound of Music’ as the joy of Maria simply springs to life to set the sap flowing anew in this little tree. Like she’s brand new again, she just gazes into the setting sun and smiles inside herself. And maybe she lets out a silent little tree sigh and says to herself, “I reckon I can die now if the Lord sees fit because life can’t possibly hand me anything more grand than this.” ~Miles A Moody
