“TO-YOU,…CRADLED / CHILDREN!”…

Keeper, of,…the-stable-door;
It was, Joseph’s,…humble-task.
He, guards,…God’s-Treasure, more;
More-than, Solomon,…could-ask!...

Joseph, keeper,…of the, stable-door;
God’s-Porter,…still, today.
See-me-come,…just-as-poor;
Please, don’t turn,…me, away!...

St. Joseph, he,…cradled; Jesus.
Yes!... Within, his gentle arm.
And, while,…Jesus / softly-slumbered;
Did, shelter,…Him / from: harm!...

I wonder, if,…you’ve ever, guessed?..
That, in,…Jesus’ / dreaming-sleep;
He, smiled,…to-think-that, He:
Over, Joseph,…would-vigil / keep!...

Oh’, humble-hearts,…and memories;
Of,…”Loves”,…our / Jesus: loses-not.
Mary’s, lullabies,…soothed / His, rest;
As Jesus,…never-forgot!...

When,…in-Jesus’-Arms;
We sigh, our,…dying-breath.
Remember, Who,…cradled / Jesus’-Birth;
As, He,…now / cradles-us,…at: Death!... Amen.

UNTO-HOME,…YOU / BRING!...

God, might have,…sent,
Legions-of-Angels,…to defend.
Against, Herod’s,…desire,
To destroy,…this / Child!...

Instead, of,…powers-and-thrones,
Who, did,…God, send?...
One,…lowly-soldier,
Weaponless,…and / Mild!...

A,…crooked-staff,
The only,…sword, he-wore.
A scanty,…thread-bare-cloak,
Joseph’s,…only / shield!...

Yet, marched,…he, bravely,
With,…Child / he-bore.
Knowing,…surely, that,
Hell’s-powers,…would / yield!...

Oh’, blessed,…Joseph,
You, became,…that, tower.
Of strength,…for even,
That, newborn,…King!...

Be, soldier,…too,
For me,…with power.
My spirit,…from exile,
(“UNTO-HOME,…YOU / BRING”)!... Amen.

“BRING-THEM,…THERE!”…

Joseph, your ax,…your saw, your plane;
Were not, the burdens,…of-a-slave.
Fatigue-and-toil,…and, sweat-and-pain;
To you, no ache,…of pity: gave!...

For you, recalled,…how, Mary’s-Boy;
Whose trade, from,…you / he-takes.
One day, put-down,…His-Childish-Toys;
And, asked you,…how-a-cross, to: make!...

Joseph, carpenter,…build-me, a house;
A-little-house,…a monk, might own.
Fashion, its beams,…of-twisted-boughs;
Make its floor,…of / Earth: alone!...

Little-house,…yet, rich-indeed;
The, Son-of-God’s,…low-natal-cave.
Rich, the sides,…these huts, of reed;
That, lonely,…Egypt, exile: gave!...

Build me, the lowliest,…that, can be;
For, this-I-know,…as we, look inside.
I think it, fit,…for, any family;
So, (“BRING-THEM,…THERE”): with me, to bide!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“JOSEPH’S,…PRAYER!”…


Little-Jesus,…close, Thy: lids.
In the shade,…of pyramids,
Cuddle to,…Thy-Mother’s-Breast.
Fear-is-fled,…now, calmly-rest!...

Little-Jesus,…Holy-One,
Child, Who art,…my / Foster-Son.
I have led, Thee,…weary-miles,
Saving-Thee,…from, Herod’s: wiles!...

Over the burning,…African sand,
Into Egypt’s,…bondage land.
Where our,…forefather’s-slaved,
And, the,…God-of-Justice: Saved!...

Child-of-Mary,…my, virgin-spouse,
Whom, the humble,…barn: did house.
Lowlier-dwelling,…here, give I;
Mounds-of-sand,…beneath the sky!...

Jesus, must,…it-ever-be,
Pain-and-Poverty,…for, Thee?...
How, my love,…would, rear-a-throne,
Richer than,…the / Pharaoh’s: own!... Amen.

“AN,…EGYPT,…NIGHT!”…


Little-One, I do,…but, dream,
Of things, that,…pleasant, seem.
What, would be,…with, kingly-home,
We, who bid,…are-to-roam?...

What, would we,…with, joys-of-Earth,
We, who-know,…whence, Thou: hast-birth?...
Life, is but,…(“AN,…EGYPT,…NIGHT”).
Where, we yearn,…for, morning’s-light!...

Life, is but,…a-bondage, place,
Till we see,…Thy-Father’s-Face.
Bondage-ah,…but, little-Child,
Thou, hast made,…our bondage: mild!...

Into, bondage,…we’ve-been, led.
We-and-Thee, whom,…believer’s, worship.
But, when comes,…The-Father’s-Command;
Back, we-go,…to our,…Holy-Land!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“AT-THE,…EVEN,…TIDE!”…


Often, the day,…was dreary,
While, his trade,…he plied.
Often, his limbs,…were weary,
(“AT-THE,…EVEN,…TIDE”)!...

Still, his heart,…was cheerful,
In spite of,…toil-and-care.
Life, was,…never fearful,
While, his two,…were there!...

Though, his back,…was breaking,
With the,…lumber’s weight.
Though, his hands,…were aching,
Early hours,…and, late!...

There was balm,…of healing,
In the,…evening, dim.
Gentle hands,…revealing,
All their love,…to, Him!...

What of all,…the striving,
Pain,…and,…weariness?...
Came the,…touch, reviving,
Of, Loved-Ones,…to, bless!...

Work, with,…joy abounding,
So, he,…heard the strain.
Of their,…voices, sounding,
With the,…ax-and-plane!...

Joseph,…joyous worker,
Pray, that I,…may-not-be.
In life’s toil,…a shirker,
But, that,…I-may-see!...

Jesus, Mary,…keeping,
Vigil at,…my side.
Bringing,…Peaceful,…sleeping,
(“AT-LIFE’S,…EVEN-TIDE”)!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“TREE,…OF,…SHAME!”…

Joseph, when you,…felled-a-tree,
Did the driving,…ax, proclaim;
The,…enduring,…prophecy:
Of the, future,…(“TREE,…OF,…SHAME”)?...

Did the sighing,…of-each-leaf,
Sound a canticle,…of pain?...
Did you fathom,…Mary’s-grief,
Visioning her,…Jesus’ / slain?...

Perhaps, you were,…spared-the-woe,
Of,…foreseeing,…Calvary.
Jesus, Mary,…loved, you-so,
Spared, they,…you: this-agony!...

While, me-thinks,…when trees, would fall,
At your, ax’s,…sturdy blows.
You drank, passion,…tears-of-gall,
Knowing, Jesus,…must: suffer-so!... Amen.

Your Friend,

Izzy!...
