Poem: The Psalmist reckoned fools were unbelieving

The Psalmist reckoned fools were unbelieving,
but faith, like fashion, leaves to sink or swim.
No God indeed? perhaps as others paint 'him'.
No goddess either? Faith is just a whim?

We look at life and context moulds our seeing,
perceptions swing with every changing wind,
for some hold onto faith that seems unchanging
while others have beliefs securely pinned.


Andrew Pratt (born 1948)
