The truth seems to be put aside

Else fears and lies will soon collide

For who can know the depth of this

Its people caught in self-abyss ?

One wonders why deceit is king

When honesty heals everything

How can it be blindness prevails

While all our ships hoist tattered sails ?

 

 

LIBERTY ( 2016 ) 2016/10/30

There was a greenish statue that on an islet stood

When I was but a child too nearby my neighborhood

We did pay small attention, we called her Liberty

She was this grand figure that you couldn’t help but see.

With every place I’ve lived she was always in my sight

You could not escape her glance not morning, noon or night

She’s still there in the harbor exposed for all to see

A symbol of our freedom and still called Liberty !

 

( WHEN I CLOSED MY BLINDS SHE WAS THE FINAL THING I’D SEE )

The more I see the more I think

This world it totters on the brink

Seems no solution has appeared

The final outcome is quite clear

We’re on the eve of some attack

How shall we win our freedom back ?

I hear the sound of our retreat

We need to get back on our feet

Stand up for what you know is right

We can’t afford to lose this fight !

I may wander in the twilight until my life is o’er

And wonder if I understand what hope is really for ?

 

A WASTE OF TIME ( 2016 ) 2016/10/27

When I was young and just a lass

I found a lovely bead of glass

Its color was the purest gold

The shape was bevelled and quite old.

 

I’d often thought from whence it came

And did its owner have a name

How foolish now as I recall

It hid amongst the leaves that fall.

 

But such a girl I was back then

I thought about it not again

For beads of glass without a home

Are objects of  forgotten tome.

 

We cannot find the rest of it

And only have the smallest bit

‘Twould be a waste of time and care

To seek whatever once was there !

 

 

 

ARTHUR PENNDRAGON ( 2016 )

A man who ruled in ancient history

And was a victim of iniquity,

Inspired by heroic deeds galore

You’ve heard the legends and the myths before.

His name still haunts the halls of storyland

With visions bold and virtues deemed so grand

This man of wisdom held his honor high

And strove for justice long before he died !

HAIL ARTHUR AND HIS KNIGHTS !

Tan, orange, yellow, brown and umber too

Fall colors all just waiting there for you

Their happy faces laughing all the while

So full of zest and sporting lots of style

Thank you dear Lord above, how did you know

What treasure  grand these autumn leaves would show ?
