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
WHEN ONE UNDERSTANDS

 

Love is the call of completion
love is the purpose and plan
love is the picture perfected
the gift to give
when one understands

Love is the way of true wisdom
love is the time and the tide
the direction and dream so driven
to be where the answer abides
Love is the reason remembered
the dawn to wake and be free
the reflection that’s seen in the mirror
the light of a true destiny

Love is peace in the knowledge
in understanding the way of the will
and in giving to gain in the measure
that lives to see it fulfilled
Love is the essence of deep soul and heart
the first thought of creation to know
for God to give in his mercy
the example to see and to show

Love is perfection of power
the direction that’s real and divine
the thought that’s eternal crystal and clear
the taste of life’s sweetest wine
Love is the beauty of being
the truth in all that is seen
the balance to bear in it’s wisdom
to wake in life’s living dream

Love is the call of completion
love is the purpose and plan
love is the picture perfected
the gift to give
when one understands .
