Poetry by Tricia Richards

Many of our songs start out as poems that Tricia writes. Noel comes up with a melody and then our songs begin to take shape. However, there are some poems that will remain just as they are and we will post some of them here for you to enjoy. Please feel free to download and use as you wish.

General Poetry

Born Still

Tricia Richards & Caroline Bonnett

The journey of life usually prepares us for the inevitable, that we do not live forever. I cannot imagine the pain that comes with the loss of a child. I believe that children represent our future and therefore to lose a child at birth must be one of the hardest things to endure . All the hopes and dreams, plans and expectations never to be realised. This poem is for those parents whose children live only in their dreams and memories.

This free download includes a PDF of the text for the poem.

The Artist

Tricia Richards

Whatever our belief about the creation of the cosmos, be it the Big Bang theory, Evolution or the existence of a heavenly being; I think we can all agree that this beautiful world is incredible.

As someone who does believe in God I see Him most clearly in the natural wonders of this planet.

A forever evolving creation.

Humanity Paused

Tricia Richards
