When I was young and words were few

Seems that I knew just what to do

I’d  “ape” the sounds  that I had heard

Turned out that each was but a word.

Soon I was there upon the stage

At rather quite an early age

With words and syllables to speak

Like some enchanted childhood freak.

I never thought  back in those days

That I’d wind up in high school  plays

I learned to sing and tap dance too

With  lessons from  the age of two.

Quite  long  I’d been an only child

Forever  charming and  beguiled

With discipline supplied on call

And kisses shared with every fall.

Today we miss what used to be

Safe childhood and security

Our faith is  great it’s  taught us this

All  lives were  meant to share God’s  bliss !

 

 

 

 

 

HEART AND HEAD ( 2019 ) 2019/07/04

I hear the whistle  on the track

It  seems to signal  “hurry  back”,

So  many  indications  sound

That help us to get all around

A  whistle blows,  a bell may ring

Birds  in the trees,  their voices sing

There is a  message  to be  heard

Tis  time to  treasure every  word

Be  ready to  accept the  call

We  know that  pride  precedes a fall

Take  care to  listen to  what’s said

And love  your God  with heart and head !

 

 

 

 

EVERYTHING SHE SAID ( 2019 ) 2019/05/11

Dear Lord, I’m glad that you are there

To hear my ever constant prayer

My mother told me long ago

That when I asked, take care to know

Because You answer each request

With what You deem to be the best

The answer will be “yes” or “no”,

“Wait for a little while or so”

“Or give us something else instead”

That covers everything she said !

 

AMEN !

 

 

 

 

HIS LAST CALL ( 2019 ) 2019/01/10

There’s a layer of frost upon the ground

A more glistening sight can ne’er be found

See how the light and the shadows collect

Mother Nature’s efforts, I do suspect.

There’s the feeling of snow now in the air

To promise us all it soon will be there

Oh for those days when the time used to be

We were all young and our freedom was free.

When life was a joy and so full of zest

Before we’d begun our own lifetime’s quest

As dew on the rose accompanied dawn

The birds begin singing come early morn.

God was right there when we opened our eyes

Depend upon Him, He offers the prize

For life without faith is no life at all

I’d rather be dust than miss His last call !

The willows in the wood reach the ground

Stretching their branches down all around

The stars in the sky shimmer and shine

With greetings they bring to yours and mine.

This year’s ending with no alarm

Leaving us with past wealth and old charm

Let’s look ahead to days that soon come

Sharing with others a bit and some

Forgiving all our errors and sins

How wonderful each New Year begins !

 

 

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 !

 

A SIMPLE GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/11/05

Like all the dreams you’ve ever dreamed

And all the plans you ever planned

Like the currents in the river

And all the ridges in the sand

One whisk of mighty ocean wave

That does quite often go astray

Maybe a mighty blast of wind

Stalls, waiting to come out and play

Like all the fishes in the sea

And all the birds that fly up high

The simple clasping of a hand

Accepts it’s time to say goodbye !
