Burdens

Days grow weary from our burdens
longing
we look for renewed strength, mind and
spirit;
as winds of time toss then tremble
hoping,
yearning for souls to freely yield,
to be
renewed by wings from Heaven;
released,
from earthly things which encumber;
freedom
in the things of God
forever!

“Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall. But those who wait upon the LORD will renew their strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:30-31

I had so much fun with this poetry form earlier this week and thought I would try it again! Waltmarie poetic form was invented by Candace Kubinec.Here are the guidelines for writing the Waltmarie:
• 10 lines
• Even lines are two syllables in length, odd lines are longer (but no specific syllable count)
• Even lines make their own mini-poem if read separately


I must be long winded, because I need 14 lines to complete a thought. So this was a twisted on this form. Remember the even lines created a hidden message on their own, if read separately.

P. Wolf, poet & author of “Jemi’s Noble Quest”
