I hear the music in my head

With words not always quite as clear

Since I arise from my small bed

All full of love and void of fear.

The world around us is a joy

Its grandeur overwhelms me so

Like all the comforts we employ

With all the treasure God may show.

The length of time and how we knew

However long, His mystery

No matter now what e’er we do

None may escape life’s symphony !

Each day that I do read God’s Law

I gain so much, far more and more

And as each word comes clear to me

I search for greater clarity.

Now I’ve been at this since I’m small

And barely have a grasp at all

Yet every day I comprehend

To God’s advice, there is no end !

 

 

I CAN BUT DREAM ( 2018 ) 2018/08/23

Oh wicked wind where have you been

What kind of trouble are you in

You’ve set your aim upon the waves

And sent great ships unto their graves.

You’ve damaged all the tallest sails

With wild velocity of gales

You’ve churned the sea into a broil

Unfit for gentleman or churl.

All islands are in fear of you

Because of ravages you do

The mountains cower under seige

Due to the damages you leave.

The sands of deserts crowd the air

Because your strength does tarry there

Where do you fit into God’s scheme

I do not know, I can but dream !

 

 

 

TAKE A STAND ( 2018 ) 2018/06/23

There is no way I can explain

The value of the sun or rain

Or birds that span this vast terrain

Like herds that roam life’s wild domain,

Or early dawn and morning dew

Like twilight’s glow before curfew

While oceans, lakes and rivers too

Are full of life that’s out of view.

Too much for us to understand

That exists under God’s command.

We need to learn what has been planned

So we know how to take a stand !

Before You grew to be quite tall

Sweet Jesus, when You were still small

What kind of life was it You led

When first arising from Your bed ?

We know at twelve You went to Shul

There questioned and reviewed God’s rule

To keep Your faith You did atone

Though in Your trial You stood alone.

Oh Son of God, You did not fail

Your life we shall forever hail

You are our Hero and our Friend

It shall be so until the end !

 

 

 

THE CONTEST ( 2018 ) 2018/01/23

The wind and trees communing near

Share a language that we can’t hear

The rustling leaves stand on their toes

Assured which way each breeze now blows

The tenure of the branches sway

Sending its message to clear the way

The smallest lift aft day is done

Displays to all a contest won !

 

 

A PRAYER OR TWO ( 2018 ) 2018/01/18

The storms of winter blow wet and wild

Enough to threaten both man and child

With the fury of weather’s power

Enough to caution both day and hour.

God’s creatures must hide or run away

As these conditions seem here to stay

There appears to be little to do

But sit back and say a prayer or two !
