There is a land where dreams are made

In sunny glen and evening shade

Where every day contains a chance

Again to find life’s lost romance !

Perchance that hope might come to be

Some wish filled with sweet ecstacy

Wherein the heart that knew regret

Despite its pain, learned to forget !

Perhaps for those who’ve passed this way

Our Lord above has made delay

And metered out a final shot

To give it all this life has got !

 

WE’RE TOO OLD ( 2018 ) 2018/11/16

When most of the darkness leaves us

And we are at last all alone

There’s no one left to deceive us

We are basic’ly  on our own.

In the midst of our lifetime’s storm

When good sense and health have vanished

Imagine that this is the norm

And what’s left here has been banished.

When the new replaces the old

And life seems to have gone astray

Remember we once were that bold

But short of a permanent stay !

 

THE STATE OF MAN ( 2018 ) 2018/09/18

Morning shades of drab tans and gray

Are always getting in the way

Of peach and golds to shocking pinks

That welcome most as sunrise sinks.

Oh what I’d give at last to see

The rainbow this world used to be

Where all felt a great need to share

With those who chanced to visit there.

I’ve often wished that I might find

A fairy wand, the magic kind,

To do the job tales tell it can

And much improve the state of man !

 

JUST DREAMING ( 2018 ) 2018/09/17

There was this time when I was young

That many words tripped off my tongue

And as those dreams filled up my mind

The future was what I would find.

I used to wish that I could be

Some nice young man’s true destiny

It ne’er did happen I must add

Perhaps that made me rather sad.

Now as the road is winding down

I keep on smiling, seldom frown

So that my life can be pure bliss

Those dreams I’ve seen end with a kiss!

 

ALL PRAISES SUNG ( 2018 ) 2018/08/07

When we were young so long ago

Seems each one had places to go

Our world held opportunity

At least a million sights to see.

Before the young had dreams to share

Or found someone that truly cared

There was a path that each might take

Beside the promises they’d make.

In youth we’re prone to fool around

And fail to keep our feet aground

There’s always one more thing to do

Some song to sing or dragon slew

Rooftops to scale or mountains climbed

Oceans to cross with not much time

Hopes, schemes and plans, all praises sung

Tis sad gets wasted on the young !

 

 

 

I SEEK MY DESTINY ( 2018 ) 2018/04/05

I feel so empty deep inside

Like I’ve been on a rocket ride

Perhaps to Venus or to Mars

Out there in space among the stars.

Quite like the stranger  I’ve become

To find myself grown cold and numb

Will someone help explain to me

Where shall I seek my destiny ?

 

 

 

 

LIFE’S DEBRIS ( 2018 ) 2018/02/03

Tis true that I would like to know

Which way the busy winds do blow

And how steep will the waves all be

Crashing in the cold winter’s sea ?

Will the tide come rushing ashore

Just as the moon rises once more

To greet its eventide asea

Amidst life’s crisis and debris ?
