King David's Soliloquy

by Dennis Donald

"The Lord's my Shepherd", catchy line,
It could take off, and given time,
Help folk get rid of needless fears.
Come with me to my boyhood years.

I was a shepherd lad, you see,
My home the hills round Bethany.
Though robbers struck and wolves caused fright
I watched my flock through day and night.

They never scattered, never strayed,
They trusted, followed as I made
Them paths to pasture, water, rest.
It seemed they knew that I knew best.

Those treasured memories I keep.
Now God's my Shepherd, I'm His sheep.
"The Lord's my Shepherd". Catchy line,
It really could take off in time.

This poem was a finalist in the November 2016 poetry contest
