Tinker Posted January 1, 2019 Share Posted January 1, 2019 The Night the Bears Roamed Dad sat on the front porch of the vacation cabin, a baseball bat across his lap to ward off the bears, Mamma sat on the lower bunk in the kids dorm with her arm around my sobbing friend, and taught us a Psalm. "Yeah though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil." The bears were looming, we listened, "Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me,” A baseball bat made a pretty good rod against imaginary bears. "Surely goodness and mercy will follow me", "And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever." We believed, we were safe, the bears were gone. To this day when afraid I remember that night and the bears go away. ~~Judi Van GorderNotes: ▼ Quote ~~ © ~~ Poems by Judi Van Gorder ~~ For permission to use this work you can write to Tinker1111@icloud.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
