At times I’m sure I hear the sound

Of children laughing all around

I hear the patter of their feet

In clitter-clatters from the street.

Oh how I wish that I were there

As joy was rising in the air

Remember how it used to be

When hearts were young and love was free ?

Those days are gone, they won’t come back

Our lives today under attack

Why must we suffer such distress

I do not know, what is your guess ?

This morning we opened the windows wide

To let fresh air swish around inside

The breezes blew all of one accord

In every space where the dust had stored.

While a little voice whispered to me

Aren’t you glad to be young and free

Well, that’s half true, I have to admit

But young’s not how I’d describe the fit !



WE NEED A HERO ( 2018 ) 2018/04/14

We need a hero, one worth waiting for

To warm up our hearts and open each door

We need memories to keep love alive

Supplying reason for us to survive.

We need a leader to tell us what’s true

To rally our faith for red, white and blue

We need a hero to stand with us now

To give us access to heaven somehow !


THAT ALL MIGHT SHARE ( 2018 ) 2018/04/13

If I peeked outside my window blind

What do you suppose that I might find

Maybe some bird there upon a limb

Who silent waits for day to begin ?

Perhaps  just a hint of morning rain

Splashing on my dusty window pane

Or an errant harbinger of spring

Anxious to join in God’s offering ?

Whatever else we find awaits there

Could be a wonder that all might share !

Our hearts are full with eyes cried dry

Why must our youth so sadly die ?

How many dreams have withered there

Upon the vine of unkempt care ?


THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER ( 2018 ) 2018/04/11

There is a tale through ages told

Of Midas and his touch of gold

But none compares with what we know

Happened to Jesus long ago.

There in a garden on a hill

On one dark night so sad and still

A troop of soldiers with their knives

Approached God’s twelve to seal their lives.

The battle raged among the few

The fighting fierce and overdue

Some ran away while others hid

It was the task Sanhedrin bid.

Two thousand years we’ve known the Word

Though truth is not all we have heard

The story thrives, it grows and grows

With fleeting time God’s blessing glows !




REPATRIATION ( 2018 ) 2018/04/10

Our men who died on foreign shore

Ne’er to be seen forever more

They sacrificed to keep us free

Gave us the gift of liberty

And we shall try to bring them home

From foreign shores ne’er more to roam !
