Twelve Going On Forever (An Anniversary Poem So Obviously Written By A Homeschooling Mom)

Twelve plus twelve is twenty-four
Just one plus five plus twenty more
The sum a hearty five score:
but just a blink with him I adore.

The secrets are ours
all whispered in ears
from One who loves in power
Who speaks to those who hear

A cord of just two, no matter how twisted,
the fate of that cord is unsure and unlisted
But a cord of three strands is not easily broken,
The Third Strand so very much more than a token.

Lisa is a grateful, born-again follower of Jesus Christ who has spent her adult life on the Gospel in several global contexts. She is the wife of one wonderful, jungle-gym of a man, who is to her the single most ravishing piece of flesh on planet earth (stolen good-heartedly from Christine Caine). She is a dedicated home educator to their four beautiful children, ages 6 to 12, whom she would be happy to gush over any time. She is an avid reader and a storyteller, an aspiring writer, a missionary to the nations and a singer of His praises, a loyal friend, an obsessive-compulsive Googler, and comedienne extraordinaire on her best days. She would also like to think that she is a loyal and loving, truth-telling friend.

  4. Mom, I’m not sure how to answer that…What exactly has you stumped?? The math itself or what it’s doing in a poem? 🙂
