This land is mine, for you and me

With mountains high from sea to sea

Her waterfalls and rivers wide

High fields above, deep caves inside

Border to border, edge to edge

Yosemite to Pikes Peak’s ledge !

This vision of our nation’s health

Or beauty of her splendor’s wealth

Is ours, the gift of God above

That teaches us the proof of love

While we in turn are thankful for

His benefits that lie in store !

 

AMEN !

Who was it launched a thousand ships

To save his love from foreign lips

And tried so hard to capture  Troy

The ones who stole his pride and joy ?

This man of honor fought to save

His loved one from that reckless knave

Now Paris was his given name

His battles brought to him great fame.

But ten years on, their fight did end

That Trojan Horse was just pretend

It did the trick to win the  day

All thought the Spartans went away.

Homer told this tale we all know

Going back, oh so long ago

By now it’s part of history

A true intrigueing mystery !

Who hears the sound of running feet

Our world reverberates defeat

While strangers view the failing trend

When will this anger ever end ?

How tired have we all become

With vision clear to only some ?

My passion washes down the drain

Promising no, not e’er again

The silence closes in once more

Too soon our Lord may bar the door !

 

INTERMISSION ( 2018 ) 2018/01/28

I feel somehow a pending urge

As all my fears and passions merge

The path  to seek a higher road

Henceforth to carry life’s great load

And find a place where each may rest

Before attempting life’s contest !

I love You Lord, that’s without end

Because You are my bestest Friend

Through thick and thin, You’re on my side

To You alone I can confide.

I need to laugh and bide with joy

You’ve helped me Lord my faith employ

Whatever You will ask of me

So quickly Lord, I do agree.

And if dear Lord we never meet

The thought of You is still as sweet

Whatever else that You may choose

I’m confident, I cannot lose !

 

 

THE LAST GOODNIGHT ( 2018 ) 2018/01/26

Well here I am alone at last

Safe from the power of times long past

Wherein my search I’ve tried my  best

To comprehend what is the  quest.

The answer softly doth resound

With all the love that each has found

And thus it is we seek respite

While gentle speaks  the last goodnight !

 

LITTLE THINGS ( 2018 ) 2018/01/25

My life’s reduced to little things

Like pleasant sounds of pigeon’s wings

The fluttering of window blinds

When misty rain and wind combines,

A fog that clouds my every thought

And questions all that I’ve been taught.

Seems nothing’s left to salve my heart

Before my journey gets a start !
