See  sunlight  streaming  through  the  trees

While  leaves  are  swaying  in  the  breeze

The  morning  air’s  so  fresh  and  cool

The  rising  sun  shines  like  a  jewel

Oh  what  a  great  day  this  will  be

A  gift  from  our  own  Diety,

God  bless  us  all  as  we  arise

Let’s  pray  this  day’s  full  of  surprise  !

 

FEEL THAT FREE ( 2020 ) 2020/05/24

I hear the sound of running feet

Laughter of children from the street

All playing on the pavement wide

Darting about from side to side.

Their shrieks of glee are full of joy

Including every girl and boy

Oh such great fun that’s to be had

Without scoldings by Mom and Dad.

I love to see the youngsters play

In God’s fresh air day after day

What a sweet pleasure it would be

If all the world could feel that free !

Well here we are, alone at last

Into the sea of life we’ve cast

Seeking solutions in our quest

Whilst reaching out to find the best.

May God Himself direct our thought

To teachings old and lessons taught

Let kindness and a gentle heart

In all directions be our start.

Please guide us to eternal peace

Where anger, hate and trouble cease

And God and man begin anew

To relish all the good we do !

Each day begins with shades of gray

Before sky blue decides to stay

The clouds are neat all in a row

They start to gather, come and go

And fill the heavens with their fluff

We never seem to get enough.

Oh how I wish that I might see

Angels hop-scotching over me

I’d laugh and giggle right out loud

I do believe we’d have a crowd.

But just for now I promise you

I’d offer God a huge ” thank You ” !

My eyes are full of wonder

My heart so wild with glee

What is this spell I’m under

How does it affect me ?

I’m a child who loves my God

And wishing all I could

That most lives are not that hard

And mercy’s understood !

AMEN.

 

SECOND CHANCES ( 2020 ) 2020/05/10

There remains certain moments we encounter every day

When we are at our leisure and the world’s prepared to pray

Aft the silence has been broken and eventide occurs

And times spent all together aren’t his or aren’t hers .

When all our simple pleasures are aligned there side by side

And the honeymoon is over without some silly pride

May the Good Lord take the measure of tasks already done

Guaranteeing life’s diversion twist happiness and fun !

THANX TO SECOND CHANCES

I hear the whistle of the train

Its echo seems to fill my brain

My heart, it races o’er the track

My toes tap out ” clickety – clack ” .

How I do love the chugging sound

As each train covers so much ground

It’ s fun to carry on this race

From town to town and place to place !

Celestial  bodies in the  sky

All flash and wink in passing by

I wonder  if  they  query why

No  other objects fly so  high !

Oh little child who dotes on sweets

With dancing shoes attached to cleats

Black patent taps that click away

And to the world new steps display.

This child to theatre newly brought

With skills and talents often sought

Hear now the sound of tapping feet

Proceed to stage, steps and the street.

How shall we serve our Lord the best

Accepting every sort of test

And understanding as we do

That all we are belongs to You !

 

BORN TO DIE ( 2020) 2020/03/21

My  heart calls out His holy name

And  searches for  the way He came

To  Calvary onto  the cross

To suffer there man’s  greatest loss,

But  who am  I   to question why

The  Son of God was born  to die !

 

 

GOD BLESS ( 2020 ) 2020/03/18

Too soon,  my  Lord,  I  give and share

For You,  my dreams  of  hope and  care

Begin  and  end  in  joyful  praise

I  beg of  You,   Your peaceful  ways.

Protect me  Lord,  I’ll ask  no more

Than  that Your  heart’s  an open door

That  offers  me a  final  choice,

Lift  up my  heart and  hear  my voice !

 

AMEN

 

THE ECHOES ( 2020 )

Oh blessed Lord, do hear my plea

Have pity on a child like me

I am Your servant sad and low

That folows ever where You go

I wait Your Word with rapid breath

For I am Yours until my death.

There is no day without Your Light

Nor any love that shines so bright

The angels sing Your praise on high

Their voices reaching for the sky

The flutter of their wings is heard

They echo every single word.

I love You Lord and always will

Until earth’s sounds at last are still !

 

FOUL OR FAIR ( 2020 )

Oh how my love plays tricks on me

And gathers up my sympathy

My eyes are full of sweet surprise

With all the joy of each sunrise

Observe God’s will with constant heart

Stay true to values from the start

Believe in your own destiny

Keep faith alive and courage free

Always remember God is there

To save us whether foul or fair !

 

GOD LOVES US ALL ( 2020 ) 2020/03/16

There  was a  street  that I used  to know

When  I was a girl so  long  ago

With an old house that had  three large floors

Lots of windows  and  quite a few  doors.

Dozens of  roses,  black  iron torch

Both  back yard  and front,  plus a great porch

Tomatoes,  peppers,  carnations  too

A home  full of love  much overdue

As  I’ve  wandered down  memory’s  lane

Couldn’t  help singing  a  glad refrain

Reminding  myself  God loves us all

Whether  we’re  skinny,  fat,  short or tall !

 

REAPPEAR ( 2020 ) 2020/03/15

Oh  sad the day  the Christ did die

And  bid this world  His last goodbye

He  suffered there  upon the cross

While  the whole world  endured the loss.

God’s  darkness fell  that distant day

And  since then  has not passed away

We’re  ready Lord,  and waiting here

For  You at last  to reappear !

AMEN.

 

 

I’M NOT AN ANGEL ( 2020 ) 2020/03/14

Oh how I  wish that I had wings

To fly  up high where  angels sing

And  visit  in their  choir loft

As  day  begins,  the light is soft

How  sweet  and clear  their voices are

The  notes ring  out both near  and far.

Oh  how I pray  that I might  be

A  part of  their community

Just  think of  all the joy  we’d  share

If  somehow  I could  tarry there

Truth  is that  cannot be  the case

Cause  I’m  part of the  human  race !

There  she is  our Lady Liberty

Symbol  of this  safe home of the  free

She’s  the  grandest of all  that we sight

There in the Harbor  each day and night.

She  spurs us on  to do greater things

Like  prayers we say  and hymns  we  sing

We’ll  join our hearts  and hands together

Through  pleasant days  or stormy weather.

Let’s  ask our  God  to protect us all

In  case old Satan  decides to call  !

 

 

 

AT LAST RELEASE ( 2020 ) 2020/03/11

I’d  like to think  that  I recall

The  tender years  when I was small,

I  sat upon my  grandpa’s  knee

And  snuggled  while he read  to me.

There  was a story  I  loved best

Both  head and shoulders o’er  the rest

About  the night  our Christ  was born

And  how the world  rejoiced that  morn

As  angels sang  and skies  did glow

The  world did kneel  and honor show.

God  placed  His star  high in the sky

With  earth  to note its  passing by,

His  promise of  eternal  peace

And  from all  sin,  at last release !

AMEN.

 

 

 

FORGOTTEN DREAMS ( 2020 ) 2020/03/06

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:35 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I  see the clouds  caught in the trees

They  all seem frozen  in the breeze

Oh  how I wish  that I could try

To  touch  their fluff while  passing by

But  heaven is  so far  away

Is  it a space  where angels play ?

I  guess that  I will never know

If  it’s a place  I’d like  to go

There  is so much  right here to see

It  might  just  take eternity

Appears  I have more time,  it seems

To  gather up  forgotten dreams !

 

MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE ( 2020 ) 2020/03/05

When  I was small  and but  a child

I  spoke in manner  sweet and mild

Twas  not a time  of angry ways

For  kindness  dwelt  in all our days.

We  spared each other  any pain

Determined  to help  and explain

Our  words displayed  the constant grace

Of  honesty  while face to face.

How  clever that  our role should be

To  echo  God’s integrity

And  live with  honor  all our days

To  seek God’s  love and sing  His Praise  !

 

 

 

PEACE OF MIND ( 2020 ) 2020/03/02

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:01 am
Tags: , , , , ,

The  sun is rising  o’er the hill

The  air is motionless  and still

There’s  not a breeze  stirs in the trees

As  if the day’s  caught  in a freeze

The  room is silent  and alone

A  truly  antiseptic  zone.

Oh  how I wish  that I could  fly

Up  to  a  haven  in the  sky

But  guess that  I  may only dream

Of  my  unrealistic  scheme

Oh  Lord  above,  help  me to find

Some  safety and true  peace  of mind !

 

 

 

 

 

WE SHALL SUCCEED ( 2020 ) 2020/03/01

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:01 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Oh  see the wind rage  through the trees

Like  rolling waves  on angry seas

Above  those masts  that rise so high

As  giant arms reach  for the sky

They  swing and  sway to touch each cloud

While  seagulls screech  and cry aloud.

Give  me the strength  to pass the test

And  courage to  survive the  rest

How  many dreams  have come and gone

That  we have pinned  our hopes upon

To  find at  last  we shall succeed

Because  our love exceeds  our need !

 

I NEED YOU NOW ( 2020 ) 2020/02/25

I  love You  Lord,  You  are to me

My  joy and life’s  Epitome

The  whipped   cream on  my piece of cake

Like  mushrooms  on my filet steak.

You’re  the Beginning  and the End

Of  all my dreams and my best  Friend

I  need Your  love to  help me now

To  get  me through  these  days somehow !

AMEN.

I  am so glad  I can recall

The  bygone days  when I was small

I’d  sit upon  my nana’s  lap

All  snug and  warm in cozy wrap

And  get to  spend  much of my days

In  comfort  close under her gaze

For  all my life,  I’ll  never find

Another  who would  be so kind

Her  gentle ways  and crooked  smile

Made  early life  for me  worthwhile

 

 

NEVER ENDING LOVE ( 2020 ) 2020/02/22

I  hear the bells  ring out for me

They  sing a song  of unity

The  melody  I  recognize

It  brings tears  to my tired eyes.

The  night  is father  to the dawn

That  breaks upon the  early morn

To  teach each  all the  patterns of

God  and  His  never  ending love !

 

BRAND NEW START ( 2020 ) 2020/02/20

Too  many must risk life and  limb

In  foreign lands beyond the rim

Let’s  return  them all  home at last

And  bury disputes of the past

We  need once more a brand new start

A  smarter way,  a bigger heart

Tis  time to lift  our  eyes above

Seek  greater wisdom  from  God’s love

Apply  His ethics one by one

And  keep  His law  until we’ve  done !

 

AMERICA, I LOVE YOU (2020 ) 2020/02/17

I  love America,  land of the free

I  love America,  tis home to me

As  she spreads  from the mountains  to the plains

Replete  with  thunder storms  and  summer rains.

From  her northern  tips to the  sandy shore

Cross  the valleys deep  and wide,  trees galore

The  beauty  of this  land  entices  all

Through  winter,  springtime, summer and  the fall !

My  journey’s long  and lonesome too

The  mind now questions what to do

My  heart still beats  and wonders why

The  time has come to  bid goodbye.

Of  all the wishes I have known

Like  all the seeds  that I have sown

( Too many  often  blown away

Ne’er to return  another day )

That  struggled  so thence to survive

God  grant the will to all revive !
