The Poetry of John Syrmis
Maleny Queensland Australia

THE RHYME OF REBIRTH
WHEN ONE UNDERSTANDS
THE POETRY OF POWER
ANTHEM
WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE
THE DREAM CREATION
OF WHAT MEANS SO MUCH
TO SING THE SAME SIMPLE SONG
ON A TUESDAY AFTERNOON
IN THE COUNTRY OR THE TOWN
TO COUNT CREATION
FAITH
THE FIRE FOREVER BURNS
THAT ALL MAY BE ATTONED

THE FIRE FOREVER BURNS

Persistence pays , the wise man said
seek and you shall find
that life is one when giving brings
a pure and perfect mind
In view of vision sought and seen
in light of love the lesson’s learned
to know the truth is to know yourself
the fire forever burns

And endurance earned , the wise man said
will pay it’s just rewards
for nothing good comes easy
to catch and climb on board
The peace trains source and destiny
for the fare that’s given good reprieve
for justice now and the way of will
to fill the greater need

Persistence pays the wise man said
let truth tell you the tale
let the spirit rise in true belief
the force that will not fail
Let compassion bring it’s count to cost
let salvation sing the song
and just like magic , the wise man said
mankind will sing along

And the riches gained will be given free
and all will understand
that God is great in the word above
to make a better man
In view of vision sought and seen
in the light of lessons learned
to know the truth is to know yourself
the fire forever burns .
