HIS FINAL CALL ( 2019 ) 2019/03/30

Whate’er we hear or see each day,

Integrity gets in the way

Truth comes at last, who is the Beast

That rules the world and all its Least ?

We certainly are gone quite mad

In truth, most citizens are sad

Hyenas rule at every gate

The Just are cowed and much irate.

Salvation seems quite overdue

How shall we know when dreams come true

Perhaps to pray as we’ve been told

Remembering God’s promise old

Each are His children one and all

Awaiting on His final call !

The wind is in the willows

The birds are on the wing

While lazing here on pillows

My heart begins to sing.

The year is growing older

Before long twill be spring

My will is growing bolder

In spite of winter’s sting.

My faith begins increasing

In every way it may

With all my fears releasing

The burden of each day !

 

 

TO THE LAMB (2019) 2019/02/19

Oh little lamb you are to me

A symbol of God’s charity

Your wooly hair and all your curls

Reminds me of our knits and purls

In early spring you sacrificed

So we’d have garments warm and nice.

A pair of soft and wooly socks

Or sweater set that really rocks

Paired with wool tights tucked in the boots

While shearling-gloved hands pulled up roots

You’ve mown the lawn there as you eat

And trampled turds with your hoofed feet

You’ve closer gathered when it’s cold

And seem to live to be quite old !

 

IT’S CALLED SADNESS ( 2019 ) 2019/01/11

There’s an instant lonesomeness in the whispering of the winds

That fills the heart with loneliness before each day begins

There is a moment of darkness that dims all of our sights

A prelude to the blindness that precedes life’s true delights !

 

IF IT FITS ( 2019 ) 2019/01/06

The world outside is crass and cold

The air inside, both brash and bold

And takes time getting used to it

If we expect our lives to fit

Let’s make the best of what we’ve got

No matter if it fits or not !

 

THE RISING OF THE SUN ( 2018 ) 2018/12/18

Sometimes the words get in the way

Of all those thoughts we have to say

Like all the angels in the skies

Whose wings do bid us sweet goodbyes

Or shutters closed ‘gainst bitter cold

Burst open for each sunshine’s role

Like evening prayer before we sleep

Filled with our promises to keep

Our lives in order,  should He come

Before the rising of the sun !

 

 

IT’S THE SEASONS CHEER ( 2018 ) 2018/11/20

There’s so much snow upon the ground

Midst signs of winter all around

The wind is cold and icy breathed

It mixes with the air that’s left !

The signs of warmth rise here and there

While smoking chimneys pierce the air,

Fireplaces through the winter’s night

Will shed their pleasant warming light.

The shadows dancing on the wall

Invite us now to taste it all

With friends and neighbors far and near

So all may reap the seasons cheer !
