The Poetry of Dorothy E. Robbins Kreiss


When Earthly Props Are Gone


When earthly props are gone

And you feel lost and down,

God is your strength:

I know.

When despair wants a room

To make your heart a tomb,

God is there:

I know.

It may look bad outside

And you want to run and hide;

God really cares:

I know.

For in the darkest night

There still shines one light:


I know.

You wish that you could see

What is going to be:

God does:

I know.

Your heart may beat with fear--it will;

But love can live there still--

With God:

I know.

And hope and faith can rout

The deepest fear and doubt

With God:

I know.


" ...we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tried like as we are..."  Hebrews 4:15

I love the poem, very inspiring, and I would say that we poets greatly need more poetry that emphasizes God.  Thanks for the beauty of rhyme.  I am interested in reading more of your poetry.
