Answered Prayers 2: Another Collection of Angelic Poetry
Thanks to everyone who have visited, shared and commented on my angel poetry hubs since this spring. It meant the world to me. Even more so, since my grandfather’s birthday is this month and my late mother’s birthday is next month. I have more poetry collections to post in the coming months next year. I hope you enjoy this set of twelve poems from my Answered Prayers poetry book.
Answered Prayers Made Happen by Angels.
Folded Wings and Eternal Light Reflections
An angel round us, her heart entwines and clings,
When she have no scorn of common things,
She listens for the harp-playing angels sings,
Patiently, the angel has folded wings.
That’s when she treads the humble paths of earth,
Though she seem of other birth,
That being in patrol for you has worth,
To make sure evil doesn’t cross your turf.
Angel thought #20: “She Folds Her Wings—
She hath no scorn of common things,
And, though she seem of other birth,
Round us her heart entwines and clings,
And patiently she folds her wings
To tread the humble paths of earth.”—James Russell Lowell
Eternal Light Reflections
Angels are intelligent reflections of light,
From cherubs up to the guardian angels,
That original light, which has no beginning,
And has no middle or an ending too.
For its light shine and flow, they can illuminate,
Never dim, forever, luster into the darkness,
Angels don’t need tongues or even ears,
And Father Time knows, that silence is golden.
For they can communicate without speech, in thought,
Watching and observing people on our earth,
Fluttering their wings in flight in the sky,
And passing a message to God on good and evil.
Angel quote #47: “Reflections of Light—
Angels are intelligent reflections of light,
that original light which has no beginning.
They can illuminate. They do not need tongues
or ears, for they can communicate without speech,
in thought.”—Joan of Damascus
In Good Company and Ethereal Love
In Good Company
If we are to live in good company with the holy angels,
In order to live with them, be prepared by living in eternity,
In Heaven, we are surrounded by angels, spirits, saints and God,
We start out as strangers, but will soon befriend each other.
How many of us give adequate thought,
To our guardian angels with all on earth, and in the sky?
Or any of those glorious beings who watch over everyone,
Always behold the face of God, when we see the angels?
Angel quote #49: “If we are to live in the company of the
holy angels hereafter, we must prepare for it by living in it
here. How many of us give anything like adequate thought
to our guardian angels, or any of those glorious beings who
always behold the face of God?”
The difference between being loved and loving is simple,
It’s a matter of character, and in your own element,
To love, for the sake of being loved is human,
Since it’s only natural to feel that way.
But to love for the sake of loving is angelic,
It’s a different realm of loving someone,
You’ll feel the warmth from all from Heaven,
And feel completely different with God’s love.
Angel quote #39: “To love for the sake of being loved is human,
but to love for the sake of loving is angelic.”—Alphonse De LaMartine
Angels-in-Training and Becoming Angels
When God has a new group of arrivals in Heaven,
All experienced angels help God in the training,
They’re taught how to fly, sing and play music,
They wear their halos and gowns so well.
They also learn how to write Greek, Hebrew and Latin,
They also know how to speak and translate the language,
For He shall give His angels-in-training charge over His people,
To keep all His angels in all the ways.
Angel quote: “For he shall give his angels charge over thee
to keep thee in all thy ways.”—Psalms 91:11.
In order to descend to Heavens,
There’s many things you can do,
Learn the Bible, go to church, stay away from sin,
These virtuous things from the Lord is so true.
You don’t need book, research, or learn the languages,
Just to be your true self and gain the power,
You don’t have to study to become an angel—just wing it!
Knowledge is key to get you even closer and higher.
Angel thought: “You don’t have to study to become an angel—
just wing it!”—Nicole Beale
Angels Will Deliver Your Messages to God
Earthly Bound and Heavenly Spirits
Angels mean to us as messengers and ministers,
They have many duties and tasks to all of us,
Each of them have a specific function to perform,
From up in Heaven or down in earth, they’re bound to it.
Their function is to execute the plan,
And that is always of divine providence,
Even if it’s on earthly things like humans,
They’re always be earthly bound to God.
Angel thought #32: “Angels mean messengers and ministers.
Their function is to execute the plan of divine providence,
even in earthly things.”—Thomas Aquinas.
Angels are heavenly spirits in the universe,
But it’s not because they’re spirits that they’re angels,
They’re the spiritual souls from the dead to join God,
And become angels when they’re sent to Heaven.
They gain wisdom, direct knowledge and contemplation,
May it be of thoughts, principles, dreams, wishes and ideas,
For the name angel refers to their celestial office,
And it’s not even in their nature for even doing so.
They turn to God, penetrate warmth, underly all phenomena,
And you may ask the name of this nature, which it’s spirit,
They fly with wings, sleep on clouds, and play music,
And they also sing songs, and wear flowing robes with slippers.
You ask of its office; it’s that of an angel in Heaven,
Which they’re all messengers for God to you,
They’re concerned with human affairs, and oversee nations,
They watch over individuals and know God through creation.
They’re also the furthest from His direct kingdom,
They appear to individuals on momentous occasions,
Angels have the gift to see and know God in the galaxy,
And they also share wisdom with an outpouring of wisdom.
Angel thought #23: “Angels are spirits, but it is not because they are
spirits that they are angels. They become angels when they are sent.
For the name angel refers to their office, not their nature. You ask
the name of this nature, it is spirit; you ask its office, it is that of an
angel, which is a messenger.”—Augustine
Earthly Angels and Love Like An Angel
To wish to act like His angels in Heaven,
You have to be good, compassionate, and have a good heart,
You’ve got to be a true believer in God,
That would give you a great head start.
While we’re still in this atmospheric world,
We have to wait until it’s our due time,
Wishing to act like angels in nothing but folly,
Whether our life is cut short, or due to crime.
Angel quote #13: “To wish to act like angels while we are still
in this world is nothing but folly.”—Teresa of Avila
Love Like an Angel
When we keep on loving each other as brothers,
Don’t forget to entertain fellow strangers,
We show compassion to a person in need,
Especially the poor, suffering and the homeless.
For by doing so in their neighborhood,
People have entertained angels without knowing it,
We’ll have the love like an angel,
As we love the neighbor, peace will be at hand.
Angel quote: “Keep on loving each other as brothers.
Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing
some people have entertained angels without knowing it.”—Hebrews 13:1, 2.
Common Ground and Splendid Dominions
The angels may have wider spheres of action,
But we’re even more alike them with common ground,
They also have nobler forms of duty than ourselves,
But our spiritual side have never been lost, but found.
Humans and angels have truth and right to them,
Our souls are pure and carefree from sin,
Even to us are one and the same thing,
As we’ll be virtuous, and never let evil win.
Angel thought: “The angels may have wider spheres
of action and nobler forms of duty than ourselves,
but truth and right to them and to us are one and
the same thing.”—Edwin Hubbell Chapin
Wings of feathers propel them into flight and travel,
Halos of golden light portray their innocence,
White gowns to wear and sleep in, to do their duty,
Clouds to ascend them to earth for long distance.
Musical instruments played with angelic choir voices heard,
Inscribing in foreign language for Annunciation Day,
Opening the gates to Heaven of pearly iridescence,
God made the angels to show Him splendour.
Angel quote: “God made the angels to show him splendour.”—Robert Bolt
