I’ve walked among  the shadows that cloud our troubled days

And wondered how the angels escaped our human ways !

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 !

Oh for my life that used to be

When I was young and truly free

With all those passions I did feel

The foolishness and thought unreal.

I spent my life much like a child

Manner sweet and a temper mild

It took a lot for me to pout

I never felt I was left out

How I do wish that I could find

A place to leave the past behind !

The trumpets sound, drums beat away

The voices have so much to say

Is this the future soon to come

What is it we are fleeing from ?

Is there some place that we may hide

From all the fears we’ve deep inside

Pick up the pieces, stand up tall

Let’s learn to walk before we fall !

If I were a goldfish in a large round glass bowl

I’d circle water all day long ’til I was old

I’m sure it would be lonely, morning, night and noon

Who is there to rescue me from my own lagoon ?

Since it possesses no front door, none I can see

It might take a giant flood to help set me free

Best that I can wish for is on one special day

Someone brings a goldfish to visit here and stay !

I am grown bold and chance to have the thought

To exit from this web in which I’m caught

A web spun of old thread and newer dreams

Escape’s not always easy as it seems !

The winter winds of change creep round the bend

As late fall exits after summer’s end

The icy gray grip of frosty morning

Is the master of each daily dawning.

I hear the cold sounds rasp upon my ear

Increasing as the year end grows quite near,

Oh to join that moving mass exodus

And escape this winter’s freeze and excess !
