LDS Poems

As an LDS poet, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, making these LDS poems (“Mormon” poems) available to others was one of my main reasons for creating this poetry site. People frequently asked, “Do you have a poem for this…?”, and it just seemed easier to put them all up on a site where everyone could find exactly what they needed. Feel free to use these LDS poems in talks, lessons, programs or the like, but be sure to include full copyright information on every copy and email a request for permission before using. For internet use, a link back to this site is required. Thanks, and enjoy your visit!

FINDING THE POEM YOU WANT:  As you scroll through this section, simply read each snippet sample (usually the first four lines) to get a feel for the poem. When you find something you like, click “CONTINUE READING” to view the entire poem.

Life’s Weather: Foul and Fair

Life leaves its mark on everyone:
a bruise, a scrape, a scar.
But none of these define us.
There is more to who we are.
We cannot alter circumstance;
God only holds that power.
We cannot stop or start the rain
that falls on every flower.
It is not ours to shift the winds
of fortune, foul or fair.
Nor can we pick the troubles
we find easiest to bear.
