Poem: “Magnificat”

Magnificat

By Patrick T. Reardon

My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. — Luke 1: 46-55

I am God’s magnifying glass.
My heart thrills.

I am a worm and no man, but blessed.

God of might, God of holiness, God of mercy.
The proud scattered.
The high brought low, sent empty away.

The poor on the cliff at the chasm, looking down into the flames.
The poor,
fed.

    Hello Patrick,

    When you are reviewing books again, would you be interested in reviewing my book, Devil Out Of Texas ?

    https://www.amazon.com/Devil-Out-Texas-Roger-Raffee-ebook/dp/B01L6O9X8I/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1472555961&sr=1-1&keywords=devil+out+of+texas

    I just posted it for sale as an ebook in Amazon. Please let me know what I need to do or send you in order to have it reviewed. It’s 449 pages.

    Here is the brief synopsis I posted with the book:

    In the summer of 1973, a fourteen year old kid spends time with his grandfather and his friends, George Burns, Jack Benny, Georgie Jessel, and others, as they play cards at the Hillcrest Country Club near Beverly Hills, California. He later sits down to listen as his grandfather tells him the action-packed tale of his great-grandfather, the first Jewish Texas Ranger, and how his grandfather came to Hollywood to become one of the pioneers of the movie industry.
    The young man learns about how his grandfather came to be friends with the early stars of the silver screen, like Tom Mix, William S. Hart, Lionel Barrymore, and Doug Fairbanks, and his grandfather’s association with the great Mexican revolutionary leader Pancho Villa, the famous lawman Wyatt Earp, and other fascinating characters.

    Thank you,

    -Roger Raffee
