And it seems to know where it’s going,

Undeterred by some quick snowing,

Trying to just get along…

Singing its Muskrat Song!

Muskrat came from the front duck pond

Trying to find a place in the great beyond

For some quiet! Those birds are a riot!

One thing it’s got is a certain lack

Of feathers…no fowl get-togethers!

And it seems to know where it’s going.

Got to catch some food to keep growing,

Keeps a-waddling along…

Singing that Muskrat Song!

Muskrat going back and forth

From the swamp to his own front porch,

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
