It's Good To Know There Are Such Folks

Updated on April 25, 2013

It's Good To Know There Are Such Folks

It's good to know there are still folks,

In this world that has gone so wrong.

Still someone who will truly lift you

And give within your heart a song.

Someone who still has the Holy Spirit

To go to the Lord and to intercede.

To leave their petition at the cross

When a friend has a mighty need .

Someone who knows without asking

That a cross often gets hard to bear

And without speaking one single word

Will let you know that they really care.

If this world was full of just such folks

What a great place this earth would be.

Where man and child can safely abide

And all hearts from sin are set free.

A wishful thought! Forever such bliss

In this world will not can not ever be.

Still we know folks where God abides

Make a better world for you and me!

Clara Kish


This is a really a pretty short poem from

a few years ago, it is getting late so I am

just putting this on here for tonight,I will

try to do better tomorrow .or at least I

plan on it but you know plans are not

always a promise , we can not really

make plans day by day sometimes God

will change them for us,and if we want to

live for Him we will always do what He wants !.

      I am glad that you liked this poem ,Tessie. I have so many from years back that I would like to put on here if God gives me the time . If He doesn't then they will die with me ,I guess . I am the only one here that writes my kind of poems, I have a granddaughter that writes very good but they are not poems for God.I pray for a change of heart there. I guess we all have prayers for our loved one going up to God. Love you, bye now,Cherry

      Good message and so true. Short Poems are sometimes the best. It is sometimes hard to hold some people's attention for long as some have short attention spans. Your Poem I love is short but great and has stayed with me throughout the years, "SOMETIMES HE ANSWERS NO." You have many other great ones but this one seems to just

      be for me. I couldn't have said it better myself! You said it just the way I feel! Much love dear Friend, Tessie

      Thank you ,Blossom,

      It's always good to hear from you , I am surprised how well some of these poems are doing , I really wrote the first real poem when my brother was in world War 11 and I never even told him until 1969 when he was dying of cancer, I was a secret poet and I never really thought about being good enough so very few people knew till a few years ago that I had hundreds of them that I had written. back then I guess people thought it was just wasted time to write poetry. Now I am bringing some of them out from years back and people have told me they helped them . Amazing, isn't it ? God surprises us, doesn't He? Love. Clara

      With the exception of the one you wrote for your hubby I think this one is one of the best...

      You can feel the warmth and the love in this one.

      Linda and I really like this one.

      Hello Whonu,

      Thank you for your comment on my poem. Yes, I do have nice neighbors ,The ones next door have one child and they are really good to me ,then one of my neighbors is my son and his wife . We live in the country and on a farm . I get so many comments from Hubbers and I am sure they would make nice neighbors ,too. When I came on here I was surprised to get such nice comments and help from them . I never expected it to be like that on here, if I had known that I would have been on here long ago. come back and visit when you have time. Clara

      I well enjoyed your sweet poem and it clearly shows that you as well as all who have nice friendly neighbors have a blessing, in deed. Our God looks after us all and makes the decisions for us and our lives. Thank you for sharing this fine work. whonu
