Thus Speaks

My Heart


Thus Speaks My Heart is a collection of 38 poem of  poems written from the heart, and overflowing with emotions of a lifetime of love, joy, loss, sorrow and the peace and love of the Lord.

The author is one of those for whom words must get from her thoughts to paper, and once there, they speak to everyone in some manner. She writes about everyday things, about the highs and lows, but always with hope and love. You will identify with the words and feel that you have made a new friend who understands your very own heart.

Madelyn's personal love of God is reflected in her poetic words. Let them lift you up.

Sample Poem


Seasons come

and seasons go

Some bringing pleasure, others woe.

I now look forward to early spring

In anticipation of

what it will bring.


The brown lawns begin to turn green

Improving greatly the

pre-garden scene.

Here and there a violet

does peek

This is going to be a great week!


The air is quite fresh but I won’t freeze.

At times I can feel a most gentle breeze.

There is a yellow sun up high in the sky.

Did I hear the fluttering of wings go by?


I hear a robin calling to his mate,

“Spring is near - please don’t be late!”

A nest they will build in that tall tree

Soon she will lay eggs - maybe two or three.


The tree’s green leaves will hide the nest

To conceal hatched babies as they rest.

What a beautiful lovely time of year.

Spring is a season I always hold dear.
