A recent school assignment required some sort of paraphrase or interpretation of Acts 3:1-10. Not being a poet by nature, a poem was the route I chose. Go figure.
A lifetime of misfortune begs at temple's beuatiful gate.Go here to see the NASB version. It is much better.
A man's relief desired,
But heaven's prayer required,
Peter and John of mercy do lay all straight.
Mid afternoon time this all awaits.
By their faith riches not embraced.
Yet intensely caring,
By Jesus the Nazarene this matter graced.
His guiding hand on this was traced.
Amazement blooms by all human measure.
Leaping praise and wonder,
All bonds of misery asunder,
Thoughts of joy at one man's pleasure.
Prized sweetly on earth is heaven's treasure.
