THE CLARION’S CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/05/31

We shall not run out of values at stake

That is an action that we will not take

For the facts are what this is all about

Either spoken gently or with a shout,

Only time can tell as each day rolls on

There is this thought that we depend upon.

When the winter’s young and the cold is new

We own the courage to make this come true

That as we age and experience mounts

There is the moment when true wisdom counts.

You may do your best making fools of all,

But who will stand at last clarion’s call ?

Hear now the battle marchers’ roar

Sending our children off to war

If not for them who will it be

That gives their life to keep us free ?

With timid breath and frosted heart

Too many wait for life to start !

The heart is full with joy complete

For love of God is ever sweet

There is no reason to complain

Nor purpose needed to explain

Life’s forecast dwells in peace with thee

And basks in God’s divinity !

 

 

NIGHT TIME’S DONE ( 2017 )

I hear the echoes from the street

Of hasty and retreating feet

Some voices carry on the breeze

And filter through the veil of trees.

Those sounds that do survive the night

Will disappear in  morning’s light

The world awakes both old and young

When daybreak comes, the night time’s done !

 

 

 

 

 

DECLINE AND FALL ( 2017 ) 2017/05/26

Tis true that tears are often sweet

That courage rises from defeat,

That wisdom needs to curb its cheek

With all those words that it may speak.

While silence is the calmest way

To channel all our fears away

It’s working hard that is the call

To save us from decline and fall !

 

 

 

 

NOUGHT TO SAY ( 2017 ) 2017/05/25

There was a tree that I had seen

Quite lush and large and oh so green

When I was young and not so tall

The tree had barely grown at all.

I’ve watched it age through all the years

Some good, some bad, some full of fears

But always spreading out each limb

As if in thanks offered to Him.

The tree is old, well I am too

If truth be told, we’ve shared a view

Times are long past, we’ve had our day

So like that tree nought left to say !
