DOES NATURE SPEAK ? ( 2018 ) 2018/11/25

I glanced out o’er my yard today

To watch leaves slowly drift away

As one by one they sailed on by

A gust of wind made each one fly.

It seemed as though they spoke to me

But silence is their destiny

There’s too much that I need to learn

The list is long, it’s turn by turn.

I often wonder what we’d do

If nature had a word or two

So you and I might understand

What is the message of the land !

A simple meal by candlelight

To take the chill off winter’s night

A table set with antique lace

Warmed by the glow of an embrace.

The silence that accompanies

This sudden chill before the freeze

While God and man try to maintain

The quiet calm that shall remain !

Oh pussy cat, dear pussy cat, what is it that you seek

Hiding in a dark corner from which I now see you peek

Oh pussy cat, sweet pussy cat, all cuddly soft and warm

All heart and love and furry coat in such a friendly form

Oh pussy cat, I miss you so, you help me feel so strong

Come snuggle here beside me where both you and I belong !

As I awake to morning’s sound

The dawn’s exploding all around

I hear bees hum and cats meow

The birds all sing while dogs bow-wow.

The noise of traffic fills the air

While beeping horns annoy and blare

The sidewalks soon begin to crowd

Street vendors hawking goods aloud.

Oh what delight each daylight brings,

A joyous heart that hums and sings,

Along with happiness and glee

Contributes to comradery !

 

 

OUR FATHER ( 2018 ) 2018/05/05

This is the first I can recall

I find my back against the wall

It all seems strange with no debrief

There is scant time to seek relief.

We flounder in life’s deep morass

Without the aid of skill or class

I wonder what the future brings

Along with normal happenings.

Shall we survive until the end

In need of courage and a friend

Let’s say the prayer we all know well

And to the Lord our wishes tell !

 

 

 

STILL BE FRIENDS ( 2018 ) 2018/01/01

There was a time that’s now gone past

When we dreamt dreams that seemed to last

And compromise was but the thought

Of all the lessons we’d been taught.

When life meant more than recompense

And most espoused good common sense

Consideration was the key

To all of God’s humanity.

Alas for most this disappeared

Replaced by arrogance and fear

Is it too late to make amends

To garner strength and still be friends ?

 

 

 

TO HAVE SOMEONE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/24

One lonely heart beats in this breast

Will I find joy in what comes next

Since any move that I chance make

Could mean to me just more heartache ?

I do not think that I shall last

If life does not small pleasures cast

The lonely path is not much fun

Tis better far to have  someone !
