Oh how I wish that I could be

A cherry on a cherry tree

I’d wear a gown of frothy pink

As early spring was on the brink

Rains soon would flush my garb away

Uncovering my round display

While time and warmth help me to grow

Soon all my cherry colors glow

And so, my friends when birds arrive

It takes some effort to survive

I’ll make it through to harvest time

Now isn’t that sweet and sublime

Please tell me after you’ve  seen me

Am I a top notch bing cherry ?

I often dream of many things

Like butterflies and fairy wings

Or cotton candy, oh so pink

The sunrise when it’s on the brink,

A baby’s laughter chiming in

My father’s face wrapped in a grin

Those yesterdays that we forget

New people that we haven’t met,

The brand new joys we mayhaps find

As all our destinies unwind !

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 !

These winter days keep hanging on

I really thought the cold had gone

How disappointing that it’s not

I gave it all the push I’ve got

And so we’ll have to tough it out

Of this I’m sure, I have no doubt

That spring is knocking at the door

And brings the change we’re waiting for

Oh what a pleasure it will be

When we are all galoshes free !

 

 

 

 

SAME LANGUAGE ( 2017 ) 2017/02/28

A little bird conversed with me

And offered me sweet sympathy

I’m sure he was a cheeky bird

Who whistled many happy words.

I couldn’t understand a one

But listening brought me such fun

He tweeted high, he tweeted low

His messages did stop and go.

Now he and I are on one page

We seem to share the self-same stage

It would be nice if we two could

Speak the same language as most should !

Who’s that knocking at my front door

What do you think he’s looking for

He is all dressed in red and white

Looks like he has been up all night,

Can you guess what  has brought him here

It must be all that Christmas cheer

Well let him in we have no choice

It’s time to hear his merry voice !

The years just seem to whiz on by

The days are short, the nighttimes fly

Hang on, hang on, don’t get upset

There’s no time left to do regret !

So hoist your sails and carry on

Oh captain, we depend upon

A little kindness here and there

Pickup your spirits, learn to share.

Show God that you will never shirk

Please let Him know that you can work

There’s so much more that needs be done

Let’s spread the word, enjoy the fun !
