That boy! What’s he doing here
Leaving the sheep to the wilderness?

Where’s the kid off to now?
Seeing the king!

What does the lad look like
Happed up in a real man’s armour!

But look now - that youth is off
To play giant-killer!

See him - a young man against
An experienced man of war!

Here, did you see what my brother
Did to Goliath?

What a man!

1 Samuel 17


  1. The Lord has certainly blessed you with the gift of writing poetry. I hope you keep writing. And thanks for visiting my blog and entering the giveaway.

  2. I love Eliab's conclusion. At first he wonders what David is doing there but soon realizes his brother is born for this giant. I like the way you've written this, beautiful. Thank you.


I'm glad to hear how this strikes you!
