WE’VE FOUND OUR VOICE ( 2018 ) 2018/03/31

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:37 am

The day is dark, the day is still

There is a cross upon the hill

There’s not a movement to be heard

There is no sound, no not a word.

A simple silence fills the room

The world about is deep in gloom

Both God and man will soon rejoice

Thank you, dear Lord, we’ve found our voice !

Out of the depths of our despair

Rises our determination

For we are nothing if not fair

Pursueing God’s destination !

It’s sad to think the world we know

Is packing up, prepared to go

Where are we going I can’t say

I haven’t heard a word today

I’m hoping that it’s not to Mars

Although I’m not opposed to stars

I’d much prefer old Jupiter

Though it is so much gassier !

Sometimes I believe that raindrops are tears

Falling from angel eyes

Reminding us that angels also have

Dreams not yet realized !

Long time ago, I was a little tot

There was this cartoon that I loved a lot !

Oh, Popeye once you were  a bunch of fun

I laughed at all those silly fights you won

I’d like to know about Miss Olive Oyl

Tell me is she still your favorite girl ?

Popeye, of all the foods you love the best

Does your tin-canned spinach still top the rest ?

What have you done with your old corn cob  pipe

You know the one, that pipe you never light ?

I sure am glad that you have hung around

With all  of that odd salty seaman sound

My dears for all the smiles I say thank you

To Popeye,Wimpy, Bluto, Sweet Pea too !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ENCHANTED MELODIES ( 2018 )

There is a quiet that I can’t explain

It is the muted sound of falling rain

Echoing slowly down the outside drain.

The movements start and stop in spurts and splays

Enchanted melodies each raindrop plays

Upon the mind wherein life’s shadow strays !

 

FRIENDSHIP NEVER ENDS ( 2018 ) 2018/03/25

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:48 am

I hear the sounds reverberate

The noises echo through the hall

Their voices quickly escalate

And laughter rises over all.

It’s great to spend together time

Tis meant for family and friends

I’m loathe to seek another clime

Let’s pray our friendship never ends !

 

OUTCOME IS A DREAM ( 2018 ) 2018/03/24

Today I trudged along the road

While packing quite a bulky load

My spirit crushed by all the stress

My soul in pain, under duress.

I wish I knew what I should do

To help myself and see this through

At times I feel the battle’s lost

Since I can’t count the total cost

I’ll keep on trying to hold fast

This effort will not be my last

Since God and me are like a team

Let’s pray the outcome is a dream !

We are the home of heroes, every color, every size

But who are those now making this effort to minimize ?

It’s been our own courageous patriots who’ve built this land

A place where citizens can work together hand in hand

This homeland where the people have the freedom and the choice

To fly the flag, sing the song, say the pledge or raise their voice !

WINTER WONDERLAND ( 2018 ) 2018/03/22

There is a sight that I can see

It is sheer wonderment to me

With April just around the bend

When will this winter ever end ?

Outside my window by the pane

I see the snow, it’s here again

The barren branches are all white

Three inches higher than last night !

The snow’s been falling to the ground

It doesn’t seem to make a sound

Warm here inside, I’m sure it’s grand

God’s brand new winter wonderland !

 

 

 

UNDERNEATH YOUR SPELL ( 2018 ) 2018/03/21

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:55 am

Oh little bird, oh little bird

Why must the springtime take so long

Oh little bird, oh little bird

I cannot wait to hear your song

The air is crisp, the wind is clean

Your nest is built above the street

Who is the stranger on the scene

For nesting space will you compete ?

Oh little bird of fragile life

And threatened ways that you pursue

Who have you chosen for a wife

And will she be forever true ?

God enjoys you and all you do

Your joyous notes do please him well

Tis true that He’ll take care of you

He’s living  underneath your spell !

Lord, I won’t sing this song once more

It’s not the same as ’twas before

Our innocence has disappeared

Perhaps it’s worse than what I feared !

I do not recognize the score

And don’t know what we’re fighting for

I can’t determine what to do

We need Your help, please send a clue !

 

LOVE UNBURDENSOME ( 2018 ) 2018/03/19

Oh curly top, oh curly top

I wish that I could truly stop

The thoughts that roll around my head

About the moments aft we’re dead.

I’d like to think that we all sleep

Until the hour tis time to reap

The future that each one deserves

Depending on how well we’ve served.

I’m sure God loves us one and all

As we who answer to His call

There will be space for all who come

To share in love unburdensome !

The sky is clear, the air is calm

Our springtime thoughts are like a balm

All cozy soft, a tender touch

This reaching out or feeling much

The spring returns once winter’s passed

Not even frost forever lasts !

Oh blessed Lord, please hear my plea

And whisk this pain away from me

To all of those who cannot cope

I beg you fill their hearts with hope,

And for the lost, please light the way

So they may seek a brighter day.

To those alone help them find peace

And from despair grant all release,

Come fill our souls with freedom’s ring

And to our God, His praises sing !

My dearest child what can I say

To get you through your darkest day,

Which words of peace may I impart

To help you ease your aching heart ?

With all the love time mayhaps bring

Like joyous songs we learn to sing,

The word of God is what we’ve got

To keep us safe, no matter what !

 

CLOSE SIDE BY SIDE ( 2018 ) 2018/03/15

Tags: , , , , ,

Now through it all, the thick and thin

You’ve always known to count me in

I stand with God, I always will

Until this heart of mine lies still !

There is  a thought that comes to mind,

Beyond this place what shall I find

A world that’s known to God alone

Where all our sins have been atoned,

One path that leads to peace at last

Our worldliness is in the past

Here gentle lamb and lion lay

Close side by side, day after day !

 

 

 

LOVE AND CHARITY ( 2018 ) 2018/03/14

Ler’s close the door and move on up

Tis time to taste another cup

We need to give peace one more try

And take a chance before goodbye.

Like all the options we have had

To choose between the good and bad

Let’s opt for dreams that might come true

And grant to all a better view

Of what God wants our lives to be

Full of both love and charity !

Oh can you hear the constant sound

Of weather rageing all around

We’re in the middle of a storm

That’s taken such an ugly form.

I’m glad that I am not outside

The wind might take me for a ride

Although perhaps that could be fun

If only we’d a bit of sun !

 

 

TO BE WITH FRIENDS ( 2018 ) 2018/03/12

The shadows fall upon the eaves

To mingle in the evening breeze

The dwindling light now flickers slow

Soon tis the hour for light to go.

The sun is fading neath the hill

Before too long the wind is still

I hear a voice reach out to me

It’s searching for some sympathy.

The day’s been long and soon will end

The time has come to be with friends !

 

 

HIS LARGE FAMILY ( 2018 ) 2018/03/11

I’ve seen the ravages of time

And watched the world we know decline

Observed the truth just melt away

And begged our Lord to help us stay

As faithful as we all may be,

A part of His large family !

 

JUDGEMENT CALL ( 2018 ) 2018/03/10

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

It seems that I am often caught

Among the ethics I have taught

The nuances we have displayed

Or values by which life is made

The causes that are pro or con

The themes we’ve based our lives upon

The book of rules that guides our choice

The feelings that command our voice

Our God is there to share it all

It is His final judgement call !

 

EARLY MORNING ROUNDS ( 2018 ) 2018/03/09

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:17 am

A glow of orange floods each room

To banish all life’s doom and gloom

The sun’s rays bouncing off the cots

If they are filled or they are not.

The morning stirs, the day begins

We cannot know who’ll lose, who wins,

The halls are quiet like a mouse

There are few sounds about the house.

I hear tip-toes along the hall

A squeaky wheel, a pregnant stall

The silence drowns my every thought

Too sad this spot where some are brought !

 

ICE CREAM DELIGHT ( 2018 ) 2018/03/08

The veil of white now settles down

It covers everything around

The falling flakes make not a sound

They simply float down to the ground.

There’s not a spot that isn’t white

The sky is filled with dazzling light.

The glistening snow shines ever bright

Resembling an ice cream delight !
