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 !

 

THE OLIVE TREE ( 2016 ) 2016/07/15

I wish, I wish that I could be

The fruit upon an olive tree

So good to eat and full of health

Both for the heart and greater wealth.

This tree can live a thousand years

Producing fruit and soothing fears

The Greeks and Romans knew its worth

Their fables told about its birth.

Seems God gave man the olive tree

In truly ancient history

Add this to all its virtues found

The olive’s wealth must all astound !

I’d like to be a shining star

Whose light did twinkle from afar

Oh what great fun that it would be

If little children wished on me !

I’d like to be a chapel bell

That every day the hour must tell

From faraway you’d hear the chime

That’s how you knew what was the time !

But better still I wish that I

Had angel wings so I might fly

To greet you all at Peter’s gate

Just to make sure you aren’t late !

My heart is heavy and so sad

For those whose lives have turned out bad

We can’t assess where lies the blame

Our duty is to help the same.

Who knows what pain victims may bear

There is great need for us to care

For we are all one family

Children of God eternally !
