The winter winds are a world away

That’s where I wish that they all would stay

There are some things I could live without

Including ice, slush and sauerkraut !

Now it doesn’t matter how I try

My ideas don’t stand a chance to fly

So old winter gets to rear its head

Bringing snow and cold to us instead,

How I wish I could escape the frost

And this wintertime would just get lost !

 

 

 

 

A BING CHERRY ( 2017 ) 2017/07/28

Oh how I wish that I could be

A cherry on a cherry tree

I’d wear a gown of frothy pink

As early spring was on the brink

Rains soon would flush my garb away

Uncovering my round display

While time and warmth help me to grow

Soon all my cherry colors glow

And so, my friends when birds arrive

It takes some effort to survive

I’ll make it through to harvest time

Now isn’t that sweet and sublime

Please tell me after you’ve  seen me

Am I a top notch bing cherry ?

Oh my dearest love what shall I do

To make sure that I am there for you

I’d like to think that you would rely

On my best efforts to get you by

In spite of my fallibility

I promise you, you can count on me !

 

 

 

 

 

HAVE A HEART ( 2017 ) 2017/06/19

I hung my heart out on a limb

And prayed someone would reel me in

I searched for love the way one should

And wound up lost in some vast wood.

I tried my hand at show and tell

And that did not go quite so well

I decided right then and there

I’d had enough of grief to spare.

And so I bought myself a book

Turned out that I was this great cook,

Love’s not what it’s cracked up to be

Seems business was my destiny !

Oh Hercules, great Hercules come sit awhile with me

Please tell me the story of how strong Atlas set you free

I sure could use a hero who would be as grand as you

To save me from trouble the way that heroes often do.

I know about your labors and how it all came to be

I’d like to hear the story of your ancient history

It doesn’t matter where we’ll meet or whether near or far

I would be glad to shake the hand of such a rising star !

Oh mighty owl high in my tree

I pray you do not pressure me

I’m not prepared for your bad news

Luck is the thing that I could use.

There are some stories I have heard

About your wisdom and your word

How you instill a certain fear

In all of those who dare to hear.

Please help me out sir, if you can

For I am born of mortal man

My needs are small, my chances few

I sure would like some help from who ?

 

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 !
