Poetry from My Book


Set Us Afire
by Ralph Spaulding Cushman

Set us afire, Lord,
Stir us, we pray!
While the world perishes
We go our way,
Purposeless, passionless,
Day after day.
Set us afire, Lord,
Stir us, we pray!

by Ralph Spaulding Cushman

I have heard it in the mountains,
I have heard it by the sea,
Where the plains are vast, and vaster
I have heard it calling, calling,
Ever calling unto me!
In the nighttime I have heard it
Through the darkness and the gloom,
In the morning when the sunrise
Bursts in splendor through my room.
Oh, what is it that's calling
In the mountains, by the sea,
In the nighttime, in the day time,
Ever calling unto me?
Oh, my soul, and can it be
It is God, and He is calling,
Ever calling, calling, calling,
Ever calling unto me?

The Greatest Prize
for Life's labors isn't
in material possessions
or impressive accomplishments,
but in the progress of personal character.
You labor for your own becoming, this is your richest reward.
Who You Become is your greatest possession,
make it your Masterpiece!

(Changing Your Stripes, 2nd Edition, page 274)

The book, "Changing Your Stripes" presents principles for getting out of

- Matt Moody
