Memories  last  forever, we  can’t  forget

Years  may  disappear  so  much to our regret

There gleaming through a twilight that will not set

If  we  chance remember with  no  ending yet !

 

AMEN.

Oh sad it was, too sad to bear

To live a life full of despair

Twas never meant to be a chain

To anchor one to fear or pain.

How simple all our lives might seem

And open to most sorts of dream

If only peace were there for free

For all life’s forms of slavery !

 

 

A PRECIOUS ACT ( 2019 ) 2019/01/01

I feel the reach of freedom here

That calls so softly on my ear

Quite childlike in its innocence

To not accept, would make no sense.

Now freedom is a hopeful word

It means the best to us we’ve heard

And conjures up a special brand

Of lifestyle that comes close at hand

It treads on no one else’s space

Where each moves on at one’s own pace

A precious act protecting rights

Avoiding foolish, feckless frights !

Our America had its birth you know

Over two hundred forty years ago

Through the thunder, lightning and fire we grew

Into this nation of red, white and blue

In the rockets great glare we won the fight

And created a star that shines so bright.

With welcoming heart and book in her hand

The Lady in Green in the harbor stands

As she holds the torch for all who will see

This home of the brave and land of the free !

The Lady in the Harbor speaks for one and all

She stands there in the distance silent and so tall

All copper green and shining like a sentinel

Full of all those secrets and tales she’ll never tell

Lady of deep mystery, tears and joys we’ve shared

While God is watching o’er us, know how much He cares !

 

FREEDOM FIRST ( 2018 ) 2018/07/06

There is a flag flies in the wind

Red, white and blue and golden fringed

And from my window every day

Its mighty emblem is displayed.

Sometimes its folds blow in the breeze

And wave to all the leaf-filled trees

Its symbol shouting freedom first

With such a sympathetic voice !

 

HAVE COURAGE ( 2018 ) 2018/06/06

Memory is a powerful tool

Not governed by sets of standard rule

A list of items hidden away

To safely keep for another day,

The human mind, a knowledge beyond

May save the secrets of which we’re fond,

A shadow here or a whisper there

Moments in time we chose not to share

These are the treasures that we may find

When we have courage to speak our mind !
