I feel the fury of the wind

That keeps on squealing, ” let me in ”

I hear the angry sounds that shout

I do not know what it’s about,

But I am not some trembling vine

Who operates without a spine

I’ve been around the block too long

You’ll note that I’m not weak but strong !

There are these words that fill my heart

And bring each day a brand new start

With joy and love and common good

Celebrating life as we should.

Oh blessed Lord teach us to find

A better way to help unwind

Confusion and the sadness of

A world that is devoid of love !

Oh Santa Claus, dear Santa Claus

This is the wrong time of the year

However, I need ask because

Too soon the holidays are here.

We get so very bothered now

Just trying to keep up with life

It’s slipt away, I don’t know how

Between our courage and our strife.

I’d like to think that you and I

Perhaps could share the central theme

While knowing one day all shall die

Each needs accept both scheme and dream !

 

THE CLARION’S CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/05/31

We shall not run out of values at stake

That is an action that we will not take

For the facts are what this is all about

Either spoken gently or with a shout,

Only time can tell as each day rolls on

There is this thought that we depend upon.

When the winter’s young and the cold is new

We own the courage to make this come true

That as we age and experience mounts

There is the moment when true wisdom counts.

You may do your best making fools of all,

But who will stand at last clarion’s call ?

 

 

 

NOUGHT TO SAY ( 2017 ) 2017/05/25

There was a tree that I had seen

Quite lush and large and oh so green

When I was young and not so tall

The tree had barely grown at all.

I’ve watched it age through all the years

Some good, some bad, some full of fears

But always spreading out each limb

As if in thanks offered to Him.

The tree is old, well I am too

If truth be told, we’ve shared a view

Times are long past, we’ve had our day

So like that tree nought left to say !

 

THIS PLEASURE ( 2017 ) 2017/05/17

Once was a killer whale I saw afloat

He was much larger than a fishing boat.

Oh such a friendly whale I’ve never met

He’d roll and dive as close as he could get

And splattered ocean water everywhere

Upon the face and hands and in one’s hair.

Oh what a thrill I’ve had to watch him swim

And how I dreamt that I could splash with him,

But whales are far too big to play with me

Besides they live in waters deep asea.

I think that I shall have to be content

Thank God that You to me this pleasure sent !

There’s much to be said for a life well spent

More to be taught from what the years have lent !
