The hum of life is all around

Hear now its rapid growing sound

Why even bees get in their share

You’ll find they’re busy everywhere.

The leaves are rustling overhead

I wish I knew what’s being said

The world today’s a mystery

With much to learn and more to see

Oh blessed Lord why must we wait

For angels to unlock the gate ?

The Lord above is kind and sweet

And holds our hand e’en  in defeat

He knows when we have had enough

And smooths the path when it is rough

God bless us all, may we survive

Until Lord Jesus will arrive !

The lonely heart doth patient wait

For those who file past heaven’s gate

There is no cause to cry aloud

For who will hear in such a crowd.

The constant vigil all must wage

Before each earns space on life’s stage

The issue is just do your best

And pray that God supplies the rest !

I’ve watched the snowflakes filter down

And heard the rain pelter the ground

I’ve seen the stars zip cross the sky

While clouds above are flying by.

I’ve felt the wind rush through the air

As autumn helped her trees go bare

The summer rains are fresh and clear

And hum a song the birds can hear.

The world’s in tune, the season’s bright

Tis soon to bid all sweet goodnight !

The early stillness fills the air

With signs of calm we all may share

Oh shall our Lord in truth forbear

And cram each day with love to spare !

There are some days I still recall

When all my babies were quite small

They laughed a lot and cried some too

Midst pillows, quilts, scissors and glue.

The kitchen floor, their happy place

With lessons and great playing space

It was the classroom served them best

That through the years withstood each test.

I relish now the times we had

When all were young, not yet a lad

So full of hope who could forget

And nothing left to hold regret !




YULETIDE CHEERS ( 2017 ) 2017/06/06

How sweet it is to greet each day

To wake each morn in peace and pray,

We thank you Lord for one more chance

To fill our days with life’s romance.

Who can be sure which season’s best

The springtime is so full of zest

While summer grabs our fantasy

It’s packed with much frivolity.

The fall rocks with its sounds and song

Until brisk winter comes along

But most can’t wait till snow appears

When all are caught in Yuletide cheers !
