The Spirit of God--By John W. (Bill) Williams--United States

The Spirit of God

Courage walks
in the shadows
of loneliness;
it faces shouts
of self-willed
crowds.  But always
it looks ahead
with hope;
it flies
like the spirit
of an eagle,
trusting the wings
of faith; it moves
ever so steadily
toward higher
mountains, building
its nest in the safety
of God’s
watchful eyes.

John W. (Bill) Williams is a retired language arts and children’s literature educator.  He lives in Martin, GA, where he stays busy with his art and poetry.  He has been published in a variety of venues.
