Oh Christopher, brave Christopher how did you spend your life

Across the seas and oceans wide amidst chaos and strife

You stumbled into a new world upon your wooden ship

What a surprise it was to learn this was no Asia trip !

And thus it was so long ago this land of ours was found

When the Spanish came to conquer and rule all on the ground

Now that is how it did begin in fourteen-ninety-two

Today we owe Columbus all our love and huge thank you !

Oh little child so full of dreams

Life isn’t always as it seems

The door of hope is not quite free

It may not open up  for thee.

Just wait awhile and softly pray

That God above will save each day

For it is He who blesses all

And answers when the children call.

Be not afraid He’ll keep you there

Close to His heart and in His care !

I wish I were a child again

Returning to remember when

Those days gone by that I recall

When I was young and oh so small.

I never questioned for one time

That I was in some unsafe clime

I wish that I could do the same

For all those children I can’t name

Who need to seek the safety of

A world chock full of God’s true love !

There is no way one can explain

Why children love to splash in rain

Or why the mud is so much fun

In which to slide upon one’s bun.

There’s no accounting for the joy

That comes to every girl or boy

To screech as loudly as they may

To frighten every bug away.

Or why each babe will play with you

The game grownups call “peekaboo”

And truly I do not know why

They all believe that angels fly !

Hear now the battle marchers’ roar

Sending our children off to war

If not for them who will it be

That gives their life to keep us free ?

This is a song small children sing

That I can’t help remembering

About how much we each are loved

By Jesus who resides above

A simple tune of honest word

The earliest I’ve ever heard

It rings so clearly in my head

The dearest words that can be said !

 

 

 

 

 

LICK-ET-Y-SPLAT ( 2016 ) 2016/09/21

I’m trying hard to help explain

About the weather and the rain

It seems that moisture from the sea

Is gathered up to shower me.

Most of the fluffy clouds that float

Above my head, land, sea or moat

Are full of water to the brim

That sometimes splashes o’er the rim.

So when those clouds grow ever dark

And cannot find a thirsty park

They open up where e’er they’re at

And flush their cache lick-et-y-splat !
