HELP SAVE ME ( 2020 ) 2020/02/29

I  see the willows  in the wood

The  branches wave  like willows should

They  sweep the air  in mock surprise

To  shake the dreamdust  from my eyes

For  dreaming is  what I do best

When  I no longer  can protest

The  world about me  and its pain

That  cries aloud again,  again

Oh  Blessed Lord,  have mercy please

I  come to You on  bended knees

Help  save me from  old Satan’s  might

Should  he discover  me some night !

Lord  save us from  old Satan’s  might

And  guide us through each lonesome night

Protect  us as we wend our  way

From  morning’s light till end of day

Forsake  us not,  we do believe,

We’re  grateful  for gifts we receive.

Lord,  how much longer  must we wait

To  greet  You at God’s  Golden Gate ?

I’ve  traveled halfway cross  this world

To  seek the peace  eluding me

With  hopes and dreams  that had been hurled

Against  the tides  reminding me

That  love is not a piece  of cake

Where  all that matters is the taste

There’s  so much more that is at stake

And  no more time  that’s left to waste !

I  cannot  wait  for dawn  to show

From  whence  the sounds of life doth flow

The  darkness of the night  will fade

As  sunbeams from daylight  invade.

The  shadows that are  left behind

As  all  the early hours  unwind

Do  leave with us  this lucent sight

Escaping  emptiness  each  night !

 

 

TOO SOON GONE ( 2019 ) 2019/08/13

The open window invites the breeze

To sashay in from beneath the trees

Take a dance around a room or two

Sharing fresh air between me and you.

Enjoy the night times secret pleasure

Amidst the joys we all do treasure

Remember how fast the seasons fly

Before we each have to bid goodbye

As the nights grow cool before the dawn

And the years we loved are too soon gone !

See  the  calendar  pages  fly

The days are  fleet and  passing by

From March to June, so seeming blest

Continueing  through all the rest

There is no  halting  summer, fall

Or  any  time  each  year  at all  !

 

 

 

 

GROW WINGS AND FLY ( 2019 ) 2019/06/09

Oh how I wish that we may speak

If I were strong  and not so weak

And had a chance to beg the Lord

That we  might be of one accord

Thus sleep with God and bird, may I

Perhaps one day grow wings and fly ?

Oh how I wish that I could fly

On magic wings into the sky

To visit in that storied land

Where dreams come true and hopes expand.

With love and joy in every nook

And shelves chock full of toy and book

A special place devoid of fear

Where no one ever sheds a tear.

There is no hunger anywhere

And there are beds for all to share

Nor is the sound of anger heard

All seem to have a kindly word.

How marvelous if we could see

Our world bathed in such harmony !

 

FLY AWAY ( 2018 ) 2018/12/25

Oh how I wish that I might be

The brightest star upon the tree

And with the words of every hymn

Sing praises loud adoring Him

In sight of God and man today

To spread my wings and fly away !

The time is now, the end appears

We can’t escape, the climax nears

Tis karma for the empty years

We are prepared to face our fears !

Like the ashes from the ember

We have promised to remember

Will it last this way forever

I can hear the answer, never !

Oh Lamb of God, I come to Thee

The bastion of our liberty

I beg of You to set me free.

Untie my wings and let me fly

Into the reaches of the sky

Ere pride and love have passed me by !

ANGELS ESCAPED ( 2017 ) 2017/07/13

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 !

 

 

THE PAST 2016 2016/10/22

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 !

 

I SAW AN OWL ( 2015 ) 2015/10/14

I saw an owl perched in a tree

He meant to hide himself from me

He seemed so quiet, somber, wise

I was not fooled by his disguise.

Oh mister owl you cannot sing

What message is it that you bring

You turn your head and blink your eyes

You will not win a beauty prize.

It is your wisdom that we seek

But who can learn, you do not speak

This wizened omen of the day

He turned his head and flew away !

Just close your eyes, what do you hear

The sound of chaos on your ear ?

Oh what a joy that it would be

To hear the surf beside the sea

Or deep within a leafy glade

To cherish sounds God’s creatures made

Or like the quiet of the air

You sense in fields as you stroll there.

But all that I can do today

Is shut the windows, run away !

I look around what do I see

A world that’s built on fantasy

It’s all about the vampire’s touch

Super heroes, witches and such.

While Spiderman or rich Bruce Wayne

Are concepts both wild and insane

Star Wars, Aliens and Doctor Who

Bewitched, Bedazzled, through and through.

I find my world is quite enough

I’m not yet ready for this stuff

I fear for what may be in store

Seems true, nothing’s real any more !

Oh Cinderella are you still there

Is that you hiding beneath the stair

I’m sorry if your life went awry

I know you’ll give it another try

There’s a lesson I have learned from you

To myself I shall remain true blue.

And when my back is against the wall

I won’t be shy I will make that call

One-eight-hundred fairy A-I-D

Won’t you please come and help set me free

I’ve been a grownup for far too long

It’s time I chose to just tag-along !

There is a bird still sings to me

From way up high in God’s great tree

He sings so sweetly in the air

Sometimes I wish he weren’t there

Because he makes me think that I

Would follow him if I could fly

While birds were born to fly and sing

Both you and I wear God’s clipped wings !

Lions and tigers in a row

And when they move where do they go

Into the jungles of the mind

Midst fantasies we yearn to find.

Camels and horses are there too

Waiting faithful for me and you

With rainbowed colors they all wear

In their wild flowing sculpted hair.

Seems right for us to ride away

When organ music pipes to play

As round in circles we must go

Until it’s time for life’s next show !

I am a saddened stranger lost

Here in this world so tempest-tossed,

Its fury which does much abound

Leaves none unscathed upon the ground.

It rages through this honeycomb

Of life that is to peace unknown

Oh Lord, be kind let calm abide

There’s no place left for us to hide !

 

MERMAIDS ( 2015 ) 2015/04/14

Have you ever seen a mermaid when you’ve been out to sea

I’m sure that I have not nor anyone that’s known to me

Seems mermaids were a help to men at least a thousand years

There is a place on the Rhine I’ve been told that one appears,

Unlike the Disney creatures who know all the rights from wrongs,

The sailors call them Lorelei they sing enchanted songs.

Like Homer’s Sirens tempted those from Troy who homeward bound

Did flounder on the rocks about on hearing their sweet sound,

I’m sad that I might have to spend another thousand years

To hear a mermaid chant her song into my waiting ears !

The morn arrives both bright and new

With fragile hope soon overdue

The day awakes midst tender light

Seems we’ve just bid the world goodnight.

How fleet the time does pass us by

As youth to age will quickly fly

We barely touch what might been

Then wander off into the wind !

I wish I were a lily pond

With fronds so large frogs sun upon

Where bees that buzz and zap about

Do forage there to find a spout

Of honey dip where they may sup

Like queens who nip from golden cup.

Or fragile birds who’ll take a sip

And clean themselves or have a dip

Like magic faun who deign to hide

From human eye by waterside,

Oh such sweet paradise is there

Let’s all rejoice and choose to share !
