Revived Spirit: An Original Poem by Warren

This original poem is entitle Revived Spirit.

Poem Background

This original poem is short and sweet. It was written during the 1979-80 school year as part of my Creative Writing class at the University of Winnipeg.

At the time, I enjoyed pulling imagery from The Bible. There was a lot of stuff going on internationally, including the Iran-Iraq war, Jimmy Carter was the US president and the table was being set for the Reagan era.

Revived Spirit

by Warren Wojnowski

The eternal law can never be broken
The great gavel ensures His wrath
Or is it merely token
And is the law within our grasp?

The dove flies high above the water
Salvation is its prize
Yet perchance its wing be broken
Its message can never die
