'When I was just as far as I could walk

From here today,

There was an hour

All still

When leaning with my head again a flower

I heard you talk.

Don't say I didn't, for I heard you say--

You spoke from that flower on the window sill-

Do you remember what it was you said?'

'First tell me what it was you thought you heard.'

'Having found the flower and driven a bee away,

I leaned on my head

And holding by the stalk,

I listened and I thought I caught the word--

What was it?  Did you call me by my name?

Or did you say--

Someone said "Come" -- I heard it as I bowed.'

'I may have thought as much, but not aloud.'

"Well, so I came.'

No official gveornment document by the founding fathers refers to separation of church and stateResearch by David Barton, founder of Wallbuilders, Inc. exposes the alleged separation of church and state for the myth that it really is. The words separation of church and state dont appear in any official gveornment documents authored by the founding fathers. This concept and these particular words were invented by an ACLU attorney named Leo Pfeffer in 1947 in the Supreme Court case of Everson versus Board of Education of Ewing Township. That liberal supreme court imposed it on the nation by a 5 to 4 vote. The ACLU and other anti-Christian organizations and individuals have used it to harass Christians with ever since. It is also used by evolutionists to try to keep a theistic explanation of origins out of the public schools. Many young people today are not aware of the fact that this concept is an ACLU invention, and that it is the extreme opposite of what our founding fathers actually intended. In other words, there is virtually no constitutional support whatsoever for it. Lets examine two of the most common myths about the founding fathers that most public school students are being taught today because of the history revisionists.Myth #1: Jeffersons letter to the Danbury Baptists is the basis for separation of church and stateSome misguided people try to claim that this quote from Thomas Jefferson establishes the separation of church and state that we now have today:Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God; that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship; that the legislative powers of gveornment reach actions only and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should c3a2e282acc593make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,c3a2e282acc29d thus building a wall of separation between Church and State. 1The first problem with that assertion is that this quote is not from an official gveornment document. The second is that it was Jeffersons original intent that this meant that the church was to be protected from the gveornment, not the reverse (which is the case today). x x

Dear Sacoyia, i've included that Poem/Song Take Me Away' in my pages, under Take Me Where??' i plan to eximane (as far as my skill will allow) the ideas behind Theism as it is expressed in this Prayer/Poem/Song which is very much an appeal to the Spirit which exists in a light unapproachable, and is as Near as it is Far Away . x x

But come back before it’s dark and don’t go to the lake, it is too windy.'But after the talk,I went otdusie and I went past the school,And I walked by the churchAnd down near the wall,Up past the shop,And straight past the park,Then I went to the lake,Mum said don’t go,But I didn’t listen, then suddenly,A gust of wind came and knocked over a boat and down came a sail,It made the waves grow bigger,And all the flags flapped and flutted,And it started to rain,Back home I went I saw a fallen down tree that was in the way ,But I din’t stop to think I climbed over it and carried on,It was 5’oclock so I ran faster THEN!!!Well done, Ellie! You have stuck to JF's style really well. I hope you do listen to mum! Mrs R.

The poem, \"The Telephone\" has a philosophical tone. He finds a flower as the medium of communication between God and himself.
Telephone is a device that establishes contact with persons at distant places. It is done easily and quickly the flower
with its cup and stalk looks like a telephone receiver. Through that flower-telephone the poet receives the message of God.
The poem highlights the significance of nature. Once, at the end of his routine life, the poet came in close contact with
a Mower it suggests that a person can develop love for nature only when he is out of his ordinary life. The Mower was in
a vase kept on the window sill It was a silent hour In a silent atmosphere only communion with nature can he established.
Suddenly he heard the voice of Clod from that flower-
When leaning with my head against a flower
I heard you talk.\"
The poet talks directly to God. He is not very sure of the exact word of God. The situation is made dramatic when the poet
asks God to repeal what he said to him over the flower-telephone:
\"Do you remember what it was you said? The poet fails to recall the exact word of God. In doubt he asks God if he called
out his name He tries to think of something else as the \'word of God. At last he recollects He says that God asked him to
come. He bowed down his head to that call of God.
But God clarifies that he has not uttered any word to him. It might have been his silent desire to call him. God is so
powerful that his silent wishes are also carried out-
\"I may have thought as much, but not aloud.\"
The poet feels happy and grateful that he has come there in obedience to the silent indication of God
Thus the, poem develops God-man relationship. It points to God\'s loving remembrance and care for His creation. It is a
typical poem of Frost, because an ordinary experience of life is turned into extraordinary. The poem is in the form of
a conversation between the poet and God.
Simplicity is the main charm of this poem. Every word counts. Each word somehow is made to add to the mood of the poem In
Frost\'s hand poetry is really brought into harmony with the spoken word.
