As dawn awakes across the land

The sun prepares for her grandstand

Her magic glory wiil be seen

As vision fit for king or queen.

The splendor of  day’s beauty bright

Engenders an unending light

For who will know the value of

God’s benefits and selfless love ?

The sky is grey, the weather’s drear

Last days of summertime are here

The air is heavy, full of scent

I wonder where the sunshine went ?

Let’s sing a song of sweet goodbye

Take a deep breath and heave a sigh

The day’s arrived to pack away

Those remnants of our yesterday

I cannot promise I’ll be here

To celebrate, same time next year !

 

 

TIS JUST THE FIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/08/29

Our world is really in a mess

Growing much worse I must confess

Seems someone, though we don’t know who,

Has played his dirty trick or two

And left us all in one great bind

For some solution we must find.

We’re upside down and downside out

We’ve lost our strength and have no clout

So buckle up and gather strength

We need to go to any length

If we’re to win this bloody war

Tis just the fight we’re ready for !

Now in the distance you can hear

The chapel bells ring loud and clear

The sound it stretches cross the land

Bringing a joy most understand.

With voices raised the choirs sing

Those words of love from God our King

We hear you Lord and will obey

Please keep us safe from day to day !

What is it that we all should learn

When each of us must face our turn,

This world rotates with all about

We’re none excused nor few left out

For who’ll arrive at that sad space

Where in the end all take their place

To meet their Maker, brash or mild

As we’re nought  but our Father’s child ?

I love you Mom, you’ll always be

My whole life through, a part of me.

All that I know and learned from you

Those lessons taught honest and true,

A kindly heart and pleasant way

The smile that starts and ends each day

A will to speak with joy and ease

The need to help, an aim to please.

These are the rules you set in place

I promise you, I will embrace !

 

 

 

 

BLESSED GOODBYE ( 2017 ) 2017/08/25

My heart still bides upon a hill

I’ve never seen nor ever will

My life depends upon each word

Twas spoken that I’ve never heard.

All of my days shall ever be

Based on a man whom I shan’t see

I trust that every single word

Plus all of those I haven’t heard

Twill live with me until I die

Bidding to all blessed goodbye !

Oh silly goose where have you been

What puddles are you waddling in

Can you reduce that honking noise

Perhaps you could acquire more poise ?

Just love your feathers, oh so soft

That make it to my sleeping loft

Your tiny goslings are so sweet

Tis sad to think, one day they’re meat !

Besides your noisy geese chorus

There is much good you’ve brought to us

With tales from famous Mother Goose

Midst spins of twists and turns unloosed !

I’d like to believe that I am strong

That I can handle what comes along

Because my courage is loathe to fail

As I’m not a ship without a sail !

Some lessons in life have taught me well

I’ve tales of my own that I may tell

Please help me dear Lord to stand up tall

Or extend Your arms ere I should fall !

Circuitous is not my style

And never found to be worthwhile

Straight forward is my only choice

That’s where I opt to use my voice

I’ve learned with time that truth still pays

Thank God, it lightens all my days !

Oh how I wish that I might find

A path that’s safe and does not wind

The straightest road without a curve

Is more a choice than I deserve

For narrow as the options be

It is the route that pleases me !

Help me to learn a kinder way

To face the challenge of each day !

 

ICONOCLAST ( 2017 ) 2017/08/19

So many children do not play

So many dreams have gone astray

While many values have been trashed

Too many idols now are bashed.

We live in times too tough to bear

There seems no kindness left to share

Our world is dying bit by bit

And everyone is part of it.

Dark clouds are gathering above

Obscuring all our acts of love

Hold on, hold on, the die is cast

Let’s welcome the iconoclast !

 

 

 

 

WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN ( 2017 ) 2017/08/18

Her mountains rose up from the sea

While sunshine showed her true glory

Her rivers flowed upon this earth

The nation prospered for its worth.

Her people stood there by her side

They lived and fought and too soon died

The grandest place this world has seen

The saddest words “what might have been ” !

 

NOTHING REAL ( 2017 ) 2017/08/17

I hear the sound of marching feet

Parading down lengths of main street

I heard the voice of those who died

With their last breath, they gave us pride.

The earth ran red with their lost blood

The tears they cried were like a flood

One cannot know what they would feel

Or understand there’s nothing real !

The steeple bells ring loud and clear

Another Sunday morning’s here

Let’s raise our voices in a song

To show our Lord we do belong.

The choir sings its chosen hymn

With words of glory lauding Him

Please, God on high, rejoice with us

That we may share the Glorious !

My heart is in the heavens, knocking at His door

I pray that God will hear me as He did before

And when my life is done and I have been set free

I pray that He will find a corner just for me!

I love you Lord, where ere I go

Your fingerprint is bound to show

The fields, the hills, the clouds above

See how the earth displays Your love.

The creatures  that fill all the seas

Like those that form our fantasies

Both in the air and on the ground

Enjoy our earth and its surround,

You are the Maker and the King

Creator of our everything !

 

MORE TO COME ( 2017 ) 2017/08/13

The air is fresh, it smells so sweet

I feel like dancing on my feet

But that’s a little premature

Since I’m unsteady, insecure.

I smile a lot, what should I do

Be grateful when each day is through

Hold on to dreams, we’re not yet done

Let’s pray  there is lots more to come !

 

BECAUSE IT MUST ( 2017 ) 2017/08/12

I’d like to think that life is kind

And prejudice is always blind

That government put to the test

Will always do what is the best

And children all will realise

That strength does not depend on size

Simple beliefs that most can trust

Should happen now because it must !

Oh blessed Lord,  help me to be

Praying that I shall do my best

To follow You and ace the test !

A little love, a little care

A smile or two for all to share

A kindly word, a firm handshake

A promise that we’ll not forsake

An open heart with willing hands

To aid our friends in foreign lands,

Respect for freedom’s rule of law

With truth for all forever more !

I know that God is everywhere

He hears my thoughts and every prayer

I am so glad He’s on my side

From start to finish, He’s my ride

How sweet it is for me to be

A part of His great family !

 

 

IT SKULKS AWAY ( 2017 ) 2017/08/08

I hear a foghorn in the mist

Its throaty call, sandpaper kissed

Swaying branches shiver and shake

You’d think the sky was gonna’ break.

I love the sound of stormy skies

When lightning strikes and crackle flies

The weather comes, it goes astray

It spins about then skulks away !

How much we shall appreciate

WIN, PASS OR LOSS ( 2017 ) 2017/08/06

When I was young and not too wise

I saw the world through clouded eyes

And often made an error in

My judgement to my great chagrin.

It took a lifetime of regret

To change some choices and reset

The values that I knew were right,

Accepted in God’s proper sight.

I’m sorry that I did not see

The terrors that affected me

Oh what a waste of time it was,

The vanity of youth because

Our God knows best He is the boss

And judges all, win, pass or loss !

Remember us dear Lord above

And gift us with unending love !

 

 

COUNT THE COST ( 2017 ) 2017/08/04

I hear a sound, I think it’s rain

It pings against my window pane

Each droplet falling one by one

Like staccato echoes everyone

The drip, drip, dripping that I hear

Sounds like a trumpet on my ear

Crescendo rising to its peak

With no one there who dares to speak

The silence of the night is lost

There’s no one left to count the cost !
