Our lives are cast in many ways

With results for all of our days

No one may change what has begun

For history’s been set and done.

We hope and pray we do not fail

And of our strengths we shall avail

So each will do the best he can

To fill that role down to a man !

 

 

TENDERFOOT WINGS ( 2017 ) 2017/03/30

Seems the Lord we love has made it clear

There’s no just cause left for us to fear

We must follow His law and believe

In all the blessings we may receive.

The commandments were written in stone

By His finger for Moses alone

And this is what we’ve been meant to learn

Before our tenderfoot wings are earned !

Can you hear the tumult of the wind

It whines aloud  that it be let in

The shutters tremble, the shingles roar

Can you feel the rattlng of the door ?

The mighty wind blows so fierce and loud

Where it gets caught bullying each cloud

Why won’t it move in a calmer way

And save its power for another day ?

 

 

I CAN’T FORGET ( 2017 ) 2017/03/28

My heart got lost so long ago

How that occured I cannot know

It was that war, I often think

That took our values to the brink

The young, the old, the in-between

Not one of us escaped the scene

It hollowed out each living thing

And in our lives did chaos bring

We took the test and some did win

Although too many were done in

And there were those, ones that I  saw

Who ne’er returned forever more

Oh Lord I wish I could  forget,

I haven’t mastered that trick yet !

A bit of froth

A joyous song

Let’s try today

To all belong !

 

 

FREEDOM’S FIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/03/26

Oh would that we might see beyond

The hills, the plains, the mirrored pond

The mountains, lakes and flowing streams

That are the image of our dreams.

The valleys and the oceans wide

These are the pulse of the pilgrims’ pride

And of this nation which exists

In spite of danger that persists.

While enemies near and afar

Diminish every brilliant star

Hoping to hide the shining light

That has become our freedom’s fight !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHARITY ( 2017 ) 2017/03/25

A little care, a little love

What is it we are dreaming of

A little hope tinged with a smile

Will carry us for quite awhile.

The way is long, the road is steep

We have a rendez-vous to keep

There are those jobs that we must do

With obstacles we need get through.

To aid the lost their strength to find

The weary to seek peace of mind

And help the indigent ensure

A future with their lives secure !
