Pleasure Sorrow Poem

Revolworks

Yesterday I was thinking about my entry on yesterday’s blog. My mind drifted to a poem I read recently by William Barkley, the great Bible commentary writer. He was discussing the Beatitudes, and specifically Matthew 5:4. As you recall, this is the reference to, “ Blessed are those who mourn…”

I thought I would share with you:

I walked a mile with Pleasure,

She chattered all the way,

But left me none the wiser

For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow,

And ne’er a word said she,

But oh, the things I learned from her

When Sorrow walked with me!
