• Bible poetry?

    Have you ever thought about what the bible is? Yes of course, some believe it is God's word but to others it is just a collection of short stories. However, how many books will have poems written about them? Try searching for bible poems and you will come across pages which include something like:

    The Anvil of God's Word Last eve I paused beside the blacksmith's door,
       And heard the anvil ring the vesper chime;
    Then looking in, I saw upon the floor,
       Old hammers worn with beating years of time.

    "How many anvils have you had," said I,
       "To wear and batter all these hammers so?"
    "Just one," said he, and then with twinkling eye,
       "The anvil wears the hammers out, you know."

    "And so," I thought, "The Anvil of God's Word
       For ages skeptic blows have beat upon,
    Yet, though the noise of falling blows was heard,
       The Anvil is unharmed, the hammers gone."
                            —John Clifford, D.D.
