If I could tell you of the tales

That in my life have been regaled

Of witches, clones and flying things

Like bats and other strange beings

Or zombies who take walks at night,

Like voodoo magic by firelight.

I know this all sounds rather queer

Especially this time of year

But Halloween is on its way

In fact, my dears, it is today !

If there were something I could give

That helped you heal and made you live

I’m sure you know I would have tried

With all my power from deep inside.

For I am far too old you see

And have half filled my destiny

Your turn was next, without a doubt

Why did I fail and had no clout ?

I am sorry, you had to lose

No other exit one could choose

I’m trying hard, I can’t forget

Now left in tears with deep regret !

 

 

YOU WILL NOT DROWN ( 2018 ) 2018/10/29

This morning as I took a peek

Outside my window pane to seek

A better view of God and sky

Wild wonderment was passing by !

He could not know the peace I found,

I watched him forage all around

As in and out he made his way

So quiet, not a leaf did sway.

It was a message shown to me

By Mourning Dove in neighbor’s tree

E’en though life’s storm comes pelting down

Just trust your wings, you will not drown !

I hear the chapel bells they ring

While songs of praise to God they sing

With sounds of joy aloud they shout

Their Hallelujahs reaching out !

Today is one more Holy Day

O’er which belief defends their way

And helps them on this steady path

With all the faith their passion hath.

These blessings keep them channeled in

To constancy and lack of sin

They do the job the best they can

To share God’s love with every man !

Oh Solomon, where is thy wisdom now

What confidence your heart and you allow

What kindness does it take for you to live

With all that wisdom that is yours to give ?

Oh foolishness beyond your every dream

Are you as true or only that you seem ?

 

KEEP UP YOUR GUARD ( 2018 ) 2018/10/26

Tis true, tis true, all heaven knows

There is a feeling, grows and grows

We need You Lord, the night blows bold

Tis sad to think,  but youth gets old.

They too must trod this selfsame road

Perhaps bearing a greater load

Remember that each breath we take

Has many varied paths at stake.

Make sure each step is firmly gripped

Without a chance, footings have slipped

Take care secure one true regard

Think safety and keep  up your guard !

How can we live our lives complete

Without the taste of some defeat ?
