Sonnet of Heavenly Things

I pray you feel the same tug upon your heart as I when I wrote this. May it bless and inspire you. PLEASE TELL ME OF SOMETHING GENTLE, TENDER. PLEASE SPEAK TO ME ABOUT HEAVENLY THINGS. THE SUN OVER MOUNTAIN PLAYS HIDE AND SEEK. AND ANGELS FLOAT AND SERVICES RENDER. I HAVE NEVER BEEN A…
