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 !

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 !

Laughter breeds so many joyous things

Your eyes will smile as your heart grows wings

The air feels clean and the dawn glows bright

Because we’ve survived the darkest night.

We have risen to the heights of hope

While rapidly learning how to cope

Our dreams remain a moment away

They are the fruits for another day !

Now that Santa has become quite “passe”

And is no longer hero of our day

What shall we do ’bout Thursday’s roast turkey

With all the trimmings we can wish to see ?

Another thought soon crosses o’er my mind

How will Charlie’s gang, that great pumpkin find ?

So many questions I have yet to ask

Seems my life has become an endless task !
