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 !

 

CIRCA 1200 BCE ( 2018 ) 2018/01/30

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 !

 

MY CHOICE ( 2018 ) 2018/01/27

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 !

 

 

I FEEL LOST ( 2018 ) 2018/01/24

Well there it is, seems miles away

I’m not sure that I want to stay

It’s too much trouble to keep track

I’d like to have my courage back.

My life is slipping from my hand

I’ve lost control, I lack command

It seems there’s no one left to hear

Solutions have become unclear.

My world grows smaller day by day

I pray and hope I’ll find my way !

 

THE CONTEST ( 2018 ) 2018/01/23

The wind and trees communing near

Share a language that we can’t hear

The rustling leaves stand on their toes

Assured which way each breeze now blows

The tenure of the branches sway

Sending its message to clear the way

The smallest lift aft day is done

Displays to all a contest won !

 

 

DIVINITY ( 2018 ) 2018/01/22

I’ve heard the stories told by men

Of events took place way back when

Catastrophes of world wide note

About which men of science wrote

Sagas of danger we have heard

Chock full of facts in every word.

They spin tales of this our Lord’s  earth

In detail and for all its worth

Assured that God creates it all

Through summer, winter, spring or fall

I find in this no mystery

Just part of His Divinity !

 

 

 

THE FINAL DEAL ( 2018 ) 2018/01/21

As we age there’s much greater fears

Sometimes our days begin  with tears

Not from the aches we used to know

When we were fresh and game to go

Teardrops may fall with passing time

Searching for the end of our climb

Ask  fates that be to tell us why

At this late stage it’s norm to cry

The growing process is too real

While we await God’s final deal !

 

THE BIRTH OF SPRING ( 2018 ) 2018/01/20

Oh Mother Earth where is your charm

That beauty we’re depending on

Falling snow and icicle balm

Creating scenes to wish upon.

While winter frost that melts in spring

Uncovers nature’s blossoming

So like a dream meandering

Will hear the forests gossiping !

I love the pictures of the snow

Where e’er you look, where e’er you go

The skies are polka-dotted too

With snowflakes drifting over you

While here and there no space is bare

The snow’s piling up everywhere !

 

 

A PRAYER OR TWO ( 2018 ) 2018/01/18

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:59 am
Tags: , , , , ,

The storms of winter blow wet and wild

Enough to threaten both man and child

With the fury of weather’s power

Enough to caution both day and hour.

God’s creatures must hide or run away

As these conditions seem here to stay

There appears to be little to do

But sit back and say a prayer or two !

 

INHUMANITY ( 2018 ) 2018/01/17

There is a place beyond our dreams

Where life is  peaceful so it seems

But nature never is at rest

It struggles long to keep abreast

We cannot claim we do not know

It follows all where ere we go.

The world itself can make no change

Without man’s aid to rearrange

The complications that we see

Placed there by inhumanity !

 

ACCEPT DEFEAT ( 2018 ) 2018/01/16

This world we know is dying fast

It seems that  peace will never last

In truth it cannot ever win

There is no way we can begin.

The die was cast too long ago

There’s no route left to touch or grow

How sad that we have come this far

To barely reach or touch the bar.

We’ll bow our heads in feigned surprise

Since we have caused our own demise !

 

 

WHISPER GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/01/15

How often I have wished that I

Could spread my wings and learn to fly

O’er mountain peaks there rising high

Across the meadows whisking by

The waters stretched to touch the sky

While gravity on earth denies.

Along the ridges wide and dry

Where eaglets nest and flight imply

I hear the mighty oceans sigh

And whisper to  this world goodbye !

 

GOD BLESS HIS WORLD  !

 

TO SUCCEED ( 2018 ) 2018/01/14

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:02 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is one joy each day may bring

Your choice to laugh or dance and sing

To smile, enjoy or to correct

Some error made  or to expect

Perhaps a chance to walk with God

And tread the path our forebears trod.

To share a bit of helping hand

Pick up the pieces or expand

Then comprehend the value of

Undaunted courage laced with love

A time to aid when there is need

Or teach another to succeed !

 

 

 

 

WORDS OF LOVE ( 2018 ) 2018/01/13

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:41 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Across the miles of earth and sky

The days of man are flashing by

How long before this age has passed

And we receive its final  blast ?

Seems there’s no voice now reaching out

Explaining what it’s all about

We need a word, some sort of sign

Assuring us there still is time

A book of rules, instructions too

From experts on what we must do

To cover each iota of

God’s wisdom and His words of love !

A child is but the whisper of

The troth between a man and maid

And proof of their eternal love

Created with God’s help and aid !

 

FACTS ( 2018 ) 2018/01/10

The thoughts that gather round my brain

I struggle hard to keep contained

Because I wish to use the best

To help me try to ace God’s test.

I see how this world writhes in pain

Without some effort, there’s no gain

If God inspires our every act

Perhaps we’ll learn to honor fact !

 

DEDICATION ( 2018 ) 2018/01/09

My heart goes out to those I love

And those that I think highly of

To all who honor glory and

Work hard to help and heal the land.

Our youth and those who dedicate

Their lives to save this world from hate

Like those who rise most every day

That keep us safe from evil’s sway.

To all who’ve sacrificed their limbs

And those who wind up war’s victims

But most of all to those who gave

Their everything some peace to save !

 

 

 

PART OF THE FLOCK ( 2018 ) 2018/01/08

This earth is full of mirth and joy

That visits every girl and boy

Who’ve known about the treasures of

Our Lord’s unfettered vows of love.

We are His children who’ve been taught

To follow in the path He’s wrought

He won’t desert or leave us cold

We are included in His fold !

 

 

 

THE BEST ( 2018 ) 2018/01/07

Tags: , , , , ,

This dream of the young, our burden to bear

The weight of the pain, too heavy to share

As life comes and goes

The burden it shows.

The sadness we carry fades in dawn’s light

Like the leftover shadows of the night

Let’s pass the true test

And pray for the best !

 

GOD BLESS US ALL !

 

MY OWN ( 2018 ) 2018/01/06

The love I knew when I was small

With hugs and squeezes by the score

That was the best that I recall

Along with being kissed galore !

I never thought that as I grew

All those moments would stay with me

And add to all the joys I knew

To be my favorite memory.

It’s long ago, the times now past

I wonder where the years have flown

I’ve never found a love to last

Or one that I could call my own !

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE LOVE OF PEACE ( 2018 ) 2018/01/05

Oh how I wish our dreams might be

Converted to reality

Then we could ask for something more

And bring an end to ugly war.

There’s so much work we need to do

To help this fantasy come true

But first comes faith and our intent

With love of peace that’s honest meant !

 

WITHIN GOD’S REACH ( 2018 ) 2018/01/04

There is a place that waits for each

So very far beyond our reach

This special place no cause impeach

Where heaven’s sky meets God’s great beach !
