The  summer’s  gone,  it’s  blown away

Beg as  I would,  it could  not stay

And now  I feel  the traitor’s spell

I  cannot  bar old  Autumn’s  tell.

So  stoke the fire  and  heat up  all

The  fruits and  plants from  frosty  fall

Shall  all  be  captive to the  cold

Like  pioneers  in times  of old !

Wild  animals  that roam  the fields

Are  kinder than great  power yields

For  men may  so much  conflict feel

In  conscience,  kindness  can’t be real.

The  cruelties of their  insane need

Of  which the world  pays little heed

Convinces  all who’ve dared  to see

Of  what they  deed  to history  !

I  cannot  wait  for dawn  to show

From  whence  the sounds of life doth flow

The  darkness of the night  will fade

As  sunbeams from daylight  invade.

The  shadows that are  left behind

As  all  the early hours  unwind

Do  leave with us  this lucent sight

Escaping  emptiness  each  night !

The sun  came out to  play today

While  sunbeams danced their hearts away

The  air was warm and smelled so sweet

And  all were  light upon  their  feet.

I  wish  somehow we could  replay

The  happenings of every day

That bring  God’s  laughter  and His joy

For  all  His  creatures to employ !

 

 

 

I’LL REMEMBER YOU ( 2019 ) 2019/10/27

Oh  blessed Lord, see how my heart grieves

When  another of Your  children leaves

This  generation has missed so  much

No  love or kisses,  no  tender touch

A  prayer or  two for what  used to be

And  a hint  of things we’ll  never see.

I  beg You  Lord  to find him a  place

Help  him to rest  in  a  special  space

Show  him the  love  that  he’s  never known

Treat  him as if  the sky were his home

Answer  his queries best as  You can

Help  him  remember he  died a man !

TO MICHAEL WITH LOVE.

 

ETERNAL BLISS ( 2019 )

I’d  like to think  that God  is here

And  those I’ve loved are  ever near

That  all I need is  close at hand

And  everything will  turn out grand.

I’ve  waited my whole  lifetime through

To  know what  is it I must do

Be  thankful  and remember this

God’s  gift to all,  eternal  bliss !

The  pages of my  calendar

All now seem to be  flashing by

They  are racing one  another

I  find I’m helpless  as they  fly.

I never thought that I would see

A time that  would  evaporate

This  world with such  rapidity

Without a  chance to  concentrate.

And so  it is  the days  have passed

Without  one moment  to be  lost

Like  pictures  in a  looking  glass

With  no one there to count the cost !
