There was a man that I used to know

He was my gardener long ago

A man of honor and good intent

Who said exactly just what he meant.

True, I knew he was a man of God

And back in those days that was not odd

He went about his work with great ease

His goal in life was to help and please.

A kindly man full of deep respect

Not an inch of ground did he neglect

His parting words I can still recall

They never changed, no not once at all.

He taught me a lesson that does survive

” See you tomorrow, if I be alive ” !

 

THANK YOU, JOHN ATANASIO !

Across the meadows of the sky

The scattered clouds are drifting by

Like puffs of cotton hung in space

All seeming to be out of place

The clouds diminish one by one

Until the skies of day are done !

Mocking bird, mocking bird, sing me your song

Help keep me amused through all the day long

Sing me a garrulous tune with your notes

Including for me, your mocking bird quotes,

Love your clear whistle each morning I hear

Wishing me well with an earful of cheer !

 

WHO KNOWS (2019) 2019/02/25

When I was young I used to pray

That I would be a mom one day

I’d raise my offspring to be good

And do the things that children should.

I’d hoped that we’d fulfill the dream

It was a lock or so it seemed

The angels watched from up above

And filled their heads with care and love.

But love is not enough to save

Each one of them from perils grave

There is no way that we may know

Wherein life’s tragedies will grow.

In winds of war or illness great

Who knows the time or day or date ?

 

 

MY NEXT GOAL (2019) 2019/02/24

Of all the joys I’ve ever known

The ones I treasure as my own

Are those that I have always spent

Enclosed under God’s earthly tent !

Days when I’m sure I can’t go on

Because the pain is never gone

It tries my patience and my faith

But love of God keeps my heart safe.

And if I keep believing thus

Another day is one more plus

I must have hope to stir my soul

And make tomorrow my next goal !

The wind is in the willows

The birds are on the wing

While lazing here on pillows

My heart begins to sing.

The year is growing older

Before long twill be spring

My will is growing bolder

In spite of winter’s sting.

My faith begins increasing

In every way it may

With all my fears releasing

The burden of each day !

 

 

THE GIFT OF LIFE (2019) 2019/02/22

Oh gentle beast, I see you there

Alone close by your hidden lair

The winter’s been and is half gone

Tis soon the season will march on.

Those little ones who have survived

Must learn right now to keep alive

To run and hide and secret be

Escaping this  hostility.

Oh what a lesson life does teach

To all who would adulthood reach

In fact, we know the truth is cruel

This gift of life’s not meant for fools !
