There’s ne’er a sound upon the street

Not e’en the thump of running feet

One cannot hear the music beat

From cruising cars most indiscreet.

No blaring horns, no clacking sound

There’s only silence all around

I wonder why most city folk

Think country living is some joke ?

 

 

TIS WINTER ONCE AGAIN ( 2018 ) 2018/11/29

I see the frost upon the bough

I know the weather’s colder now

It seems the winter has appeared

Clad in its ever bright white gear!

The clock that’s on my kitchen wall

Marks time through winter, spring and fall

While summer days may melt away

To leave behind each yesterday

With warmth to hasten any claim

To love or joy or hope or fame !

 

 

ONE LESS LOSS ( 2018 ) 2018/11/28

The shards of light sift through the blind

And leave too many threads to find

That weave along life’s weary road

For those who strive with burdened load.

The way is coarse and over done

At times it’s o’er before begun

If we could seek just one more toss

With God, we’ll strike up one less loss !

 

I WISH THAT I COULD BE ( 2018 ) 2018/11/27

Oh Lord, oh Lord, I wish that I could be

A little star upon the Christmas tree

That would glow brightly there night after night

From dusk till early morning light.

I’d like to be a crystal ball that spins

And for each time it stops somebody wins

Or if not that a sturdy knight of old

Who rescues damsels in his suit of gold.

I’d rather be a dreamer on a cloud

Than melt away into a busy crowd

But most of all I wish that I might be

Included in God’s blest community !

 

 

 

A BIT OF SYMPATHY ( 2018 ) 2018/11/26

There are these days that come and go

When pain is all I ever know

It seems I can’t remember how

It used to be before right now.

I simply get too tired to think

And ofttimes tremble on the brink

But I recall that God is there

And hears our every single prayer.

I only hope my timing’s right

Perhaps this will be my tonight

Oh Lord above, look down on me

And share a bit of sympathy !

 

DOES NATURE SPEAK ? ( 2018 ) 2018/11/25

I glanced out o’er my yard today

To watch leaves slowly drift away

As one by one they sailed on by

A gust of wind made each one fly.

It seemed as though they spoke to me

But silence is their destiny

There’s too much that I need to learn

The list is long, it’s turn by turn.

I often wonder what we’d do

If nature had a word or two

So you and I might understand

What is the message of the land !

 

UNBENDING FINALITY ( 2018 ) 2018/11/24

How my heart yearns for the days of yore

Before life’s heartbreak slipt through the door

And left behind an unholy mess

That I deal with now without redress

I have learned to accept God’s decree

In its unbending finality !
