When things so bad do happen, what to do?
All things do teach us something real and good.
Do nothing e’re to fret, and naught to rue.
Lift up affect, do laugh a bit, raise mood.
This day will pass into oblivion sure.
Find gift to praise, for gift the day doth have.
O’r mood so low is but a chance, a lure,
A time cocoon inside, apply a salve.
“This too shall pass,” they do all say so oft.
‘Tis time to turn to Maker dear, o’r God.
His way is good and true, all strong, n’er soft.
A time of generations long, not mod’.
When we do turn to God when times are hard,
We benefit from chastening and the rod.
