And so it is that what we seek

To calm the poor, the mild, the meek

Are promises we all must keep

Before we to great futures leap !

A gentle man was He who came

To save our lives and heal the lame

He brought us sight and gave us grace

To make this world a better place.

He taught us to be kind and fair

And all His blessings learn to share

But best of all, the larger scope

He brought to all the joy of hope !

 

 

 

TEARS ( 2016 ) 2016/12/29

My tears all tumble down I cannot halt their flow

I’ve tried so very hard they’ve nowhere else to go

I weep for the lost, the forgotten, broken, bruised

Those children who have been discarded or abused

Teardrops like summer rain keep getting in the way

How I wish I could find one tearless sunny day.

I see that times are hard for those upon the road

Though even in that past when God had shared the load

I’m sure He is still there along that rugged trail

All we can do is pray His efforts will not fail !

I’d often thought how great ‘twould be

If all God’s children could feel free

And how improved our lives would seem

With each endowed  to chase their dream

Another chance to reach the goal

Which is the anchor of one’s soul

While God to us His treasures bare

In hopes that all may pleasures share !

 

 

CURTAIN FALL ( 2016 ) 2016/12/27

Seems I don’t know what will  come next

I cannot read the hidden text

Some days I’m sure ’twill be my last

And others when the surge has passed.

I find it most confusing now

When shall I take my closing bow

It’s difficult to get a grip

There are no lessons, how to ship !

Well, God and me are on one page

Though surely not upon the stage

And when I make that final call

I’m ready for His curtain fall !

All those noxious gnats, flies, ticks and fleas

Harmful, quite unlike our bumblebees

They do not help the flowers to grow

Or wild fields about to bloom and show,

Their value is but to birds and frogs

Supplying snacks in vast  marsh and bogs.

Now we’d  be fine if they were inclined

To spread  their germs among their own kind !

 

LOST AND FOUND ( 2007 )

I love the spring I love the fall

I love God’s word above else all,

The mountains that do rise so high

With many that reach for the sky

 

The valleys that engender rain

The hills that stretch across the plain,

The oceans and the seas so deep

These are provisions we need keep

 

A sultry storm, the desert heat

Fields that produce the food we eat,

The forests that protect the home

Where creatures live and breed and roam

 

This is the world we can’t replace

God gifts to us our lives to grace,

Tis strange how oft we lose our way

Yet manage still to greet the day !

 

LOST THIS YEARS AGO, NEVER PUBLISHED BEFORE.
