On a summer eve you can see heat rise

It shimmers and floats there before your eyes

The steaming waves seem to reach for the skies

Before morning dew greets the fog’s demise !

I have seen from the top of the mountains

Into the depths of each valley below

The lush beauty that covers our woodlands

As ocean to ocean great rivers flow !

This life is mine, from my God a gift

With a book of rules, I’m set adrift

And I must learn long before I die

Which rules I shall observe or defy.

Our God is kind, loving and giving

He requires prayer to earn forgiving

For in the end when there’s no strength left

Who is there to blame for our life’s theft ?

We own the clock in this human race

But none knows where is the other place

So I’ll wait in line with all the rest

To say my prayers and to give my best !

Here’s to the Statue of Liberty

And to this place called land of the free

Despite the crack in Liberty’s bell,

Honor the tale historians tell

Of Revere and his steed’s late night ride

Through this great land of the Pilgrim’s pride,

To patriots who fought in the wars

And gave their lives for this country’s cause

To the young, the feeble and the old

The quick and dead, the brave and the bold

And to our Lord who resides above

For His constant care, enduring love !

This beauty that is God’s to share

Displayed to us from everywhere

Shines brightly like a diadem

Its brilliance sparkly as a gem

For all to see and know who’s king

Of earth and air and everything !

 

B – I – B – L – E ( 2015 )

I think I have become too old to be

A Disney fan or Star Trekkie

I much prefer the music of

The B G’s or Burt Bacharach’s stuff.

There is no jewelry that I wear

I’ve no desire to color my hair

In the heat or cold, I shun a hat

I guess I’m boring, I can see that.

I’m afraid my books do cover all

The tables, chairs and bench in the hall

I’d rather read than watch the T V

My favorite is B – I – B – L – E !

Patriotism is never out of style for me

This is my life, my nature, my identity !

 

THE ALTERNATIVE ( 2015 )

I’ve often thought that people care

Too much about the clothes they wear

And worry over foolish things

Like perfume, body art and rings

While others take great time to choose

Whose signature is on their shoes.

Now when it comes to pick a car

Some folks take things a bit too far

A car’s a chassis on four wheels

In custom color that appeals

It takes us where we want to go

And really must not steal the show.

Tis better far that we agree

The gifts of God to all are free

It matters not how we are clad

But if our hearts are just and glad

To know at last each choice we make

Will please our God is no mistake !

 

WHO’S ALONE ( 2015 ) 2015/07/01

At times I think I’m petrified

My arms all limp, my legs seem tied

I cannot move, I feel like stone

How shall I manage all alone ?

But who’s alone, we live with hope

And learn to seek God’s broader scope

For He is present every hour

And shares with us His awesome power !
