Willing hands will do
What wilful ones will never
And receive their rest.

– Patrick Lauser

Elderly hands in lap, red robe

Lights alight on noisome Night
And kindle a Fire it cannot fight.

– From a work in progress, which involves the learning of “Bywords” to use to get past Monsters and evil Beasts.

The drowsiness of an afternoon should not be able to overcome the passion of Eternity.

“A learned blockhead is a greater
blockhead than an ignorant one.”

– From Poor Richard’s Almanack by Benjamin Franklin

Who Can Know?

Who has glimpsed the hidden glories of this earth of God’s?
Who can see what caverns spread beneath unsullied night,
Which lie decked with prisms with no light to scatter where
No one has gone or can go, for no man knows to seek?
It lies rich in gloom and greater than the garnished grave
Of the city it might swallow up with every spire.

– Patrick Lauser

“The light, full and smooth, lay like a gold rind over the turf, the furze and yew bushes, the few wind-stunted thorn trees. From the ridge, the light seemed to cover all the slope below, drowsy and still. But down in the grass itself, between the bushes, in that thick forest trodden by the beetle, the spider and the hunting shrew, the moving light was like a wind that danced among them to set them scurrying and weaving. The red rays flickered in and out of the grass stems, flashing minutely on membranous wings, casting long shadows behind the thinnest of filamentary legs, breaking each patch of bare soil into a myriad of individual grains.”

– From Watership Down by Richard Adams

golden sunlight gleaming through grass heads

Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:
Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word:
Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:
Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:
Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:
Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:
Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.

– Psalm 148:7-13

The joy of our Saviour be with you, and have a merry Christmas season!
