Jordan’s Brook

     This one is fitting for a Sunday, I think.

Enjoy, and God Bless,

Jake.

The River Jordan

When I cross sweet Jordan’s Brook

JORDAN’S BROOK

 I have lived inside,

this shell, that’s I,

for decades six, plus more,

and I’ve searched my mind,

but, have yet to find,

any why’s or for’s.

*

 Is there a key,

to why I be,

and where, may it be found?

In open sight,

at day and night,

or like treasure, in the ground?

*

 The answer, to the riddle,

is likely, in the middle,

where I, have yet to look.

Or will it lay,

until Judgment Day,

When I cross, sweet Jordan‘s brook?
