In a garden long, long ago

In a special place I don’t know

Lived someone related to me

Long, long ago in history.

Perhaps one day we’ll get to meet

On a corner of heaven’s street

And if we can’t I will not mind

There will be others I shall find

For we are one huge family

And a part of that selfsame tree !

Oh Christopher, brave Christopher how did you spend your life

Across the seas and oceans wide amidst chaos and strife

You stumbled into a new world upon your wooden ship

What a surprise it was to learn this was no Asia trip !

And thus it was so long ago this land of ours was found

When the Spanish came to conquer and rule all on the ground

Now that is how it did begin in fourteen-ninety-two

Today we owe Columbus all our love and huge thank you !

Each day I wake, I thank the Lord

Because I find I’m still onboard

I’m not too sure if that’s a gift,

Until life’s haze begins to lift

I check to see if I’m all there

My fingers, toes, my face and hair

Both arms and legs are working fine

On a ten scale, I’d guess I’m nine !

I’m not a fan of winter chill

A runny nose or feeling ill

Fact is I’d like to outlaw snow

In any place I choose to go.

But I don’t wish to be extreme

Or shatter others and their dream

Though I don’t ski, I know it’s fun

I have seen hundreds on a run.

Perhaps I’ll winter in the house

Snuggled up like a hearthside mouse

I pray that I’ll keep warm till spring

When sunshine smiles on everything !

 

BORING BLISS ( 2017 ) 2017/09/19

Every day starts out the same

I’m getting tired of this game

I do believe I’d like some change

Although I think it could feel strange.

I’ve been a creature of routine

My life is calm, sweetly serene

And I don’t know if I’d survive

An increase in excess or drive.

Perhaps I’d better rethink this

And settle for my boring bliss !

 

FIX IT OVERNIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/09/13

Oh Superman, what shall I do

I need some one who’s just like you

A hero brave will not suffice

He must be wise and extra nice.

Besides his strength, he must be kind

With all the courage one can find

Cause this is a tremendous task

There is a favor I must ask !

I am no longer young but old

Not of much use or so I’m told

This world we live in  has a crack

We want to have our freedom back

There’s no one left to make it right

Could you please fix it overnight ?

There’s a stranger in my parlor

How did he get inside

I thought I heard his noisy chirp

Wherever does he hide ?

Well,  never mind the sound he makes

I need to find him how,

The miracle of all of this

He’s in my house right now !

I guess I’ll learn to live with him

What else is there to do

Perhaps one day he’ll say farewell

Goodbye and toodle-loo !
