The Tone of Faith ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

The tone of faith,
rings out loud and clear
for it sings out . . .

The melody of trust,
is sung with joy and glee

Ephesians 5:19

and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing and making melody in your

Attic melancholy – Gabriela M.


In this attic there is no light anymore. Nothing penetrates the small windows from which we used to watch the moon’s rays playing on the chestnut leaves during our first autumn. 

In darkness I sit down and wrap a piece of a burned candle around loves which are born out of pity. How pathetic. 

I hear a whisper: perhaps my old toys locked inside the old Spanish chest.  They still talk among themselves, don’t they? 

You were right. I’ve never was what I appeared to be: a common girl walking in the streets and drinking mocktails in bars.

I used to laugh. Yet you did not drown in my laughter. You vanished inside my melancholy; inside the dead world to which I’ve always aspired. You’ve remained there forbidding my laughter for fear of not forgetting me. 

Oh, that loyalty of yours in the mist of all temptations.   

The night is…

John Cowgill: Stories of the Railroad


New York City, New York is the largest metropolis in the United States of America.  Before air travel, it was the Gateway to North America, and it still somewhat has that status today although people can fly to most cities in the country.  During the American Revolutionary War, General George Washington fought off the British in defense of the city.  Famous places in the region include the famous Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, Coney Island, Central Park, the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower which was built on the site of the World Trade Center Towers that were destroyed on September 11, 2001 with the loss of many lives.  A memorial was built to remember the people and the heroes on that tragic day.  With all these sites in the city, you cannot forget the sites in the suburbs.  In Morristown, you have George Washington’s Headquarters…
