A little bird conversed with me

And offered me sweet sympathy

I’m sure he was a cheeky bird

Who whistled many happy words.

I couldn’t understand a one

But listening brought me such fun

He tweeted high, he tweeted low

His messages did stop and go.

Now he and I are on one page

We seem to share the self-same stage

It would be nice if we two could

Speak the same language as most should !

 

 

 

 

 

GOD’S FRONT DOOR ( 2017 ) 2017/02/27

My heart has wandered ever long

To find out where it does belong

I’ve followed every path I knew

To search for love and comfort too

Alas I found no haven there

Just emptiness and sad despair.

I guess I’ll have to try again

My problem is I don’t know when

Perhaps tomorrow I’ll have luck

The trouble is I think I’m stuck

Between a rock and some hard place

Dear Lord, help me my fears to face.

So let’s not waste a minute more

It’s time to knock on God’s front door !

It looks like spring may soon be here

Is this good time for us to cheer

Do you think we should wait a bit

Until we’re sure that this is it ?

Perhaps we’ll take another day

Ere we pack our woolens away

Another job for us to do,

Remember get some mothballs too.

I do so hate motheaten holes

In sweaters, scarves or worsted hose

At least there’s this great joy in sight

Goodbye to every frosty night !

 

UP IN THE SKY ( 2017 ) 2017/02/25

Please look outside, what do you see

Small groups of birds in every tree

That seem to be in ecstasy

Their happy sounds bring joy to me !

If only I could learn to fly

Like all these friendly passers-by

I’d  join them on their branch so high

And praise the Lord up in the sky !

 

 

BOSS OF YOU AND ME ( 2017 ) 2017/02/24

I hear the wind so wild and cold

It shares a chill quite brash and bold

And struts its sound beyond the storm

Oh how I wish I could get warm.

I’d guess the forests need to sleep

While gusty winds do clean and sweep

It is a job of giant length

And needs to work at high pitch strength

For God owns all the powers that be

And is the boss of you and me !

 

 

 

ALREADY SAILED ( 2017 ) 2017/02/23

I do believe man’s lost control

And in this life now plays scant role

No matter what he’ll do or say

I do not think he’ll have his way

He’s handed all of our defense

To those who are devoid of sense.

Just look around what do you see

Blank faces lacking industry

They cannot spell or cursive write

They’re neither smart nor oh so bright

It makes me sad since I’m unsure

How can I help us be secure.

Who ever thought there’d come a day

When all our dreams were flushed away

And we are left alone to grieve

For all those joys we shan’t receive

Oh foolish people weak and frail

Too bad that ship’s already sailed !

The colors of the rainbow are

As glorious as evening star

That’s ringed by comets from afar

And shares their beauty near and far !
