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 !

 

 

 

NONSENSE ( 2017 ) 2017/05/12

I wish, I wish that I could be

A magic fairy on a spree

Or Christmas star upon your tree

And if not that, a busy bee

To buzz around and set you free

So you may spend the day with me.

Thus from our pain we both shall flee

Before the queen sits down to tea

And other children can agree

The time is now to live with glee !

 

ON THE SCENE ( 2017 ) 2017/04/30

I think that I have always been

A child of God who prays to win

The chance to walk above the clouds

Where angels gather into crowds.

I’d roam around and seek to find

A pathway that must surely wind

Along the road up to the gate

Where Jesus’ own disciples wait.

If I should act just like a lamb

And none would notice who I am

Perhaps that might be ever keen

I could be there right on the scene !

 

 

 

 

KEEP SEARCHING ( 2017 ) 2017/04/23

Of all the wishes I have missed,

( Not least of all, Prince Charming’s kiss )

I feel that I have been misled

And pandered to by lies instead.

Tis sad that I’ve not yet to learn

Love’s not a passion one can earn

Most words of love that I have heard

Are spurious and quite absurd

But still I’m sure true love exists

Keep searching, know you must persist !
