Oh squirrel, squirrel on the wall

You are the greatest thief of all

I see you quickly moving in

And stand up tall as you begin

The slightest sound makes you flash freeze

You look as rigid as the trees.

You do not move one tiny bit

Your eyeballs glaze without a twit

I’ve tried quite hard but I can’t hold

A candle to your posture bold

Your garment fades into the fence

I guess that’s part of God’s defence.

You don’t seem big enough to eat

You are all fur with little meat

Oh frisky rodent you must play

Another role in God’s display

There must be other jobs you do

For God to take such care of you !

 

 

PARADISE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/24

Once was a place called Paradise

It existed longtime ago

We knew it was special and nice

There is this book that told us so.

We often wonder, growing old

If admission there is still free

Or does it take a journey bold

For simple folk like you and me ?

Who knows what is tomorrow’s share

The most we can do is to guess

And beg our Lord to take us there

It’s the key to our happiness !

 

THE ESCAPE ( 2019 )

Far in the distance I can hear

The sound of all the passing trains

The wail that echoes loud and clear

Repeating its wistful refrains,

Across this world the trains hold court

With language we can’t comprehend

In climates cold or damage fraught

Or crises we don’t understand.

Oh sad the trail of distance brings

To circumstance beyond our reach

It is the sound of dying things

The skill of God will soon impeach !

 

NO DUE DATE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/23

The past, it was, but is no more

It tip-toed out of my back door

And left behind so much regret

Twill take a lifetime to forget.

Though I don’t think it ever will

Until my heart at last lies still

I miss you now, it won’t abate

A mother’s love has no due date !

 

 

 

THE SPRING HAS COME ( 2019 ) 2019/03/22

I hear the rain,  its pouring down

The raindrops splashing all around

The smell of spring is, oh, so sweet

With more to come, our daily treat.

This earth is parched and overcome

The winter’s been its old hum-drum

The spring is here for its short stay

Let’s make the most of every day !

A little voice within my head

Whispered to me,  “get out of bed,

Stop feeling sorry for yourself

And rise up from that dusty shelf. ”

“It’s not as bad as what you think

Please move back safely from the brink

Tis time to pay attention to

All that the Lord has done for you !”

“Wake up, wake up, ere it’s too late

Just how much longer will you wait ?

This scene is coming to an end

Make haste to mend your fence, my friend  !”

 

 

 

THE JOYS OF SPRING ( 2019 ) 2019/03/19

The wind, it whispers in the breeze

And blows its breath into the trees

It sings a song of joyousness

That’s gathered in the robin’s breast.

The mockingbird sounds crisp and curt

He does not wish a songbird hurt

And mimics all he can,  but still

He stops short of the whip-poor-will,

You’ll hear the chorus of each bird

It is the best I’ve ever heard !
