SONGS OF A GIRL
Within the little house
Of my great love for you,
This safe and happy house,
I sit and sing, while all the world goes by,
Within the house that is my love for you
No harm can come, nor any thought of fear;
There is no danger that can cross the threshold.
You did not build this house
But God the Carpenter ---
-- Mary Carolyn Davies
Unusual, but I have always liked this since finding it years ago in a a very old literature textbook. Of course we realize that true security is found only in God and His love, but human love is a gift from Him as well. I think the poem is acknowledging that fact in the last few lines.
