The tender shoots have gone to bed

They chose to doze in spring instead

The cherry trees have gone to sleep

The willows now no longer weep !

All of God’s seeds are taking naps

Avoiding all the snowy traps

The season sure makes one big mess

With slosh and cold, I must confess.

Think of all the joy it will bring

When God appears in early spring

Returning treasures we had lost

To snow and ice and winter’s frost !

There’s so much snow upon the ground

Midst signs of winter all around

The wind is cold and icy breathed

It mixes with the air that’s left !

The signs of warmth rise here and there

While smoking chimneys pierce the air,

Fireplaces through the winter’s night

Will shed their pleasant warming light.

The shadows dancing on the wall

Invite us now to taste it all

With friends and neighbors far and near

So all may reap the seasons cheer !

Where the moon comes over the mountain

And the stars disappear in the sea

There’s a statue rains in a fountain

In a special place they call Trevi.

In the past I have been there often

It’s such a heavenly  place to be

As I remember how hearts soften

And the day I’ll return there to see !

Seems winter came in one fell swoop

The cold rushed in all whoop-dee-doo

The rains they staged a wild deluge

For sure they weren’t playing Scrooge.

The icing on the cake could be

It downed the leaves on every tree

Tis not true New Years Eve as yet

How much more busy can it get ?

Oh, Child of God, so pure and sweet

The earth paid homage at your feet

Great wars were fought to save Your name

Your Image garners world wide fame.

You are the Sum of what we are

Yet, You have never travelled far

How wonderous that You should be

The Key to God’s eternity !

 

WE’RE TOO OLD ( 2018 ) 2018/11/16

When most of the darkness leaves us

And we are at last all alone

There’s no one left to deceive us

We are basic’ly  on our own.

In the midst of our lifetime’s storm

When good sense and health have vanished

Imagine that this is the norm

And what’s left here has been banished.

When the new replaces the old

And life seems to have gone astray

Remember we once were that bold

But short of a permanent stay !

 

NOT READY FOR GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/11/15

I feel the chill that’s in the air

The trees outside are stark and bare

There’s ne’er a plant that shall survive

Too cold last night to stay alive.

When morning calls what will we see

God’s version of tenacity,

A world reviving from cold’s blast

Whose entity doth last and last.

Through warm or cold and wet or dry

God’s plans’ not ready for goodbye

So loosen up, get on the track

It’s time to take His wisdom back !
