Cupid Dances

Updated on December 4, 2021

By Jerry Robbins

“God just dropped him in my lap,”
She said with a warm smile,
Glancing at her beloved,
Eyes bright with the glow of romance.

It gives one pause, this notion of God.
A Fed-Ex God, who delivers things on earth
I have never read about it in Bible concordances.
Those weighty tomes that want to tell you
All the things for which Mighty God is responsible.
Or, so they say…

And so he gets up from her lap
Turns and gives her a big hug
Which she,
Hardly recovered from the impact of him,
Returns with a fervent embrace

While in heaven, those “cupid angels”
I suppose they are called
Who have never read a concordance
But daily attend God, Who is Love,
Dance with joy at this good blessing
Come to earth.
