A Posy of Flowers – 6: Alan Jacobs

FORGET-ME-NOT

Pretty petulant petals of brightest blue,
Petty adornment gracing gardens of love,
Emblem of Adoration to our Great God above,
For Remembering Him is right worship true;
Prayer will bring Him ever closer to you,
As Noah’s praise, when he saw a snow white dove,
That showed the end of the flood, which drove
Righteousness from Earth, except for a few.

When man falls into a dark ditch too low,
God in his mercy sends His messenger down,
To lift up the level in country and town.
Thus we’ll never forget Him, even more so,
Remain loyal as His flock, in order to show
Salvation; when we gain Enlightenment’ s crown.
