Old winter is around the bend

Not long before the year does end

The weather seems much colder now

Sure it will be alright somehow

We’ll bundle up and drink some cheer

And beg of God a great new year !

 

WITH MARSHMALLOWS TOO !

The end draws near and seems so strange

That life of man lasts but short range

While trees exist for centuries

Attested by the rings one sees.

In man there is this pressing need

For lives to fail or to succeed

As each is counted one by one

But who shall know when counting’s done ?

There’s ne’er a sound upon the street

Not e’en the thump of running feet

One cannot hear the music beat

From cruising cars most indiscreet.

No blaring horns, no clacking sound

There’s only silence all around

I wonder why most city folk

Think country living is some joke ?

Seems winter came in one fell swoop

The cold rushed in all whoop-dee-doo

The rains they staged a wild deluge

For sure they weren’t playing Scrooge.

The icing on the cake could be

It downed the leaves on every tree

Tis not true New Years Eve as yet

How much more busy can it get ?

 

NIGHTMARES ( 2018 ) 2018/11/11

I had a dream the other night

And wakened with an awful fright

I felt the ground just slip away

While all my world lay in decay.

It seemed to me I was alone

Some place that was a danger zone

I rose quite slowly from my bed

To take a look around instead.

I said ” Thank you ” I am okay

” Please help me Lord to stay that way ”

I’ll be more cautious late at night

Who dreams to wake with such a fright ?

The night arrives so swiftly now

The moon too soon will make its bow

Hurrah,  say we, but what is there

Beyond yon tree, a blinking stare ?

Who is it there, who hides from me

Reveal yourself, so I may see

Who thinks to play a game or two

Let’s wait to see if I catch you !

Oh my,  oh my,  you brazen guy

You have escaped into the sky

And left me wishing that I might

Join you one day in magic flight !

If I could tell you of the tales

That in my life have been regaled

Of witches, clones and flying things

Like bats and other strange beings

Or zombies who take walks at night,

Like voodoo magic by firelight.

I know this all sounds rather queer

Especially this time of year

But Halloween is on its way

In fact, my dears, it is today !
