For POETS UNITED ~ Midweek Motif ~ 7

Seven Sleepers of The Cave
Seven faithful believers....

If Love and peace would prevail
in this world full of beating hearts
warm feelings filling the eyes
with tenderness pouring from the skies
who would ever think of committing
a sin,
not one nor two nor seven,
All would be in
for Heaven-

Seven Sleepers of The Cave
Seven faithful believers-

The Earth grows green gold
sweet honey abounds
even if we eat it all still
there is more and more
till the winter and the Fall
So let not anger envy or pride
make us greedy slow and hide
all good behind lust
for dust we are and
shall return to dust
So all these sins seven
can be conquered by eleven-

Let us remember
That which will raise our score
The Laws of The Almighty,
Words of Our Dear Guide-
‘Listen, Pray,  Go and sin no more’


  1. The Earth grows green gold
    sweet honey abounds

    Love these lines!

  2. Wonderful! Let the sins sleep. Go forth and sin no more. Your images are vivid, the cadance in this poem dances.

  3. My fave lines are the same as Rosemary's. Plus I love "seven sleepers of the cave".

    1. Thank you Sherry your words and kind thoughts encourage me much

  4. If only we could resist! Practice may not make perfect but certainly improves us...very thoughtful piece
