Do feel the sun, its warmth is there

As is the scent upon the air

That flutters sweetly on the breeze

And waltzes lightly through the trees

Oh pleasures all, where have you gone

Where is this dream we’re counting on ?

Now I have lived quite a long time

In varied places and other clime

And learned that one must try to fit

Into each spot that’s part of it.

When but a child, the horse and cart

Is how our travel had its start

Next came the Ford all black and square

While in the rear its trunk was there.

Those skinny tires were truly sad

I cannot count the flats we had

Oh for those days that are long gone

Sweet memories my heart dwells on !

The shifting sands of life do blow

Across our vision wide and slow

And changes all the views we see

As we seek out God’s harmony.

The winds of time have come and gone

And left our dreams both pale and wan

Escape, escape, that cannot be

For none but death shall set us free !

Now I have dreamt a thousand dreams and cried a million tears

I’ve wandered lost a lifetime long and fought a hundred fears

I’ve counted stars on lonely nights and mended wounded hearts

I’ve learned to live in quiet peace and prayed for brand new starts

Tis time to thank the Lord above for all that I’ve received

I’m grateful that He cushioned me and never once deceived !


INFAMY ( 2017 ) 2017/05/02

Sometimes the heart is more inclined

To seek respite and courage find

Among the days of lesser times

When this world bode in older climes.

For where we are, not where we’ve been,

Is caught in chance and grief and sin

There’s scant honor left, we may find

In all the hours to still unwind.

Oh blessed Lord,  take care that we

Escape this time of infamy !



GOD’S NEW WORLD ( 2017 ) 2017/04/03

Sometimes there are those days that I

Wish I would grow two wings and fly

Then there are times I wish instead

That I could spend all day in bed.

I’m never sure which should come first

My quest for rest or traveler’s thirst

I guess I’ll settle for the dream

That I am more than what I seem.

I’m flesh and blood and caring heart

Awaiting God’s new world to start !

I’ve told you about my teddy bear

And all of the dreams we two did share

We’ve spoken of my Raggedy Ann

You know I was her favorite fan.

While my mom and dad who loved me so

Taught me my manners and how to show

Kindness and love to all that I greet

How to keep my faith and be discreet.

From my nana dear who was so wise

And my grandpop with those laughing eyes

I learned that life might be a great joy

If simple respect we would employ.

For whom in this world devoid of hope

Could manage to win or learn to cope

Without the aid of the God we know

And all the angels  we’ve met below ?
