My heart flies high, it has grown wings

My soul so free that now it sings

Strains of music to teach us dance

Each moment brings a new romance.

The world round me is full of joy

With happiness one needs employ

However long that we are free

May God bless all we chance to be !

Tis said that life’s a learning curve

While on this road one must not swerve

Remember to keep goal in mind

Let moderation help you find

Those aims that you are searching for

And keys to open freedom’s door !

Isn’t it amazing we are living on the brink

With each and every moment of how we breathe and think

We’ve been taught to earn our keep in the old fashioned way

And we are growing better with what we do each day

The lesson we have learned is that God is always there

While He watches over us and does our burdens share !

 

ASSIMILATION ( 2016 ) 2016/10/23

I’d like to say that I know all

The promises I should recall

But since I was a tiny tot

It seems to me there were a lot.

 

While childhood was to home confined

I promised that I’d always mind

In Sunday school I swore that I

Would love the Lord and never lie.

 

Then as I grew and went to school

I pledged the flag and golden rule

When I was twelve, Girl Scouts came next

I took the vows and learned the text.

 

Now at thirteen I was confirmed

That’s where Commandments all were learned

High School became a brand new stage

I entered in another age.

 

I’d like to think I’ve done my best

For family, God and the rest

As truth and faith, integrity

Mean everything on earth to me !

 

 

 

 

 

LEGENDS ( 2016 ) 2016/06/08

Now I have trod thouands of miles

From the Highlands to the low

And wandered o’er its paths and stiles

Threading through the fields that grow.

I’ve hiked so many mountain peaks

And clambered over rough stone

I’m bored by shopping and boutiques

I prefer to trek alone.

It’s ancient times that intrigue me

With stories that I have known,

What’s captured me is history

And the legends it has sown !

 

 

LIFE’S VENUE ( 2015 ) 2015/07/25

There was a child that used to be

Wide-eyed and cheerful, full of glee

And then one day all got to see

That grownup person who is me.

I’d like to be the way I was

But that can’t be I’m sure because

Along the way we took a pause

To teach us how a grownup does.

One finds that learning’s never done

The process blurs once you’ve begun

No guarantee ’tis always fun

The race continues till it’s done !

 

LEARN TO SHARE ( 2015 ) 2015/05/16

When I was young and meek and mild

I knew the manners of a child

But as I grew and aged a bit

My ways improved I learned to fit.

It seems to me that age must share

Abilities of love and care

Yet caution all to patience earn

As one by one each takes a turn !
