The snow has covered all the ground
There’s not another soul around
Our world of white is drowning in
A swirl of ice and sleet and wind.
There is no color anywhere
Except for trees whose limbs are bare
And evergreens both small and tall
Whose silouettes display it all.
This winter beauty that we see
Will fade away eventually !
WINTER BEAUTY ( 2019 ) 2019/02/12
YOUR LAST CHANCE ( 2018 ) 2018/12/14
One day you’re here and then you’re gone
While every other soul moves on
The time’s arrived when you are done
Tis soon an end to all begun.
There really is no second chance
Except for that last parting glance
So soak it up, the final perk
Tighten your belt and get to work !
I’VE CRIED AND CRIED ( 2018 ) 2018/12/09
It’s been awhile since you’ve been gone
I find it hard to carry on
My days are long, the hours unwind
To seek the peace I cannot find.
A part of me has lost its way
The rest seems to have gone astray
I heard those last words that you said
They are imbedded in my head
O’er every word, I’ve cried and cried
My son, for you, I would have died !
OH CHILD OF GOD (2018 ) 2018/11/17
Oh, Child of God, so pure and sweet
The earth paid homage at your feet
Great wars were fought to save Your name
Your Image garners world wide fame.
You are the Sum of what we are
Yet, You have never travelled far
How wonderous that You should be
The Key to God’s eternity !
CYCLES ( 2018 ) 2018/09/21
The sun it rises in the eastern sky
Each day to bid the starlit night goodbye
This ancient pattern must be kept alive
For one without the other can’t survive !
I HAVE HOPES (2018 ) 2018/06/06
I’m trying hard to keep abreast
Of all the import of each test
I beg God’s help and am undone
There’s one last battle to be won
Grant me the power to climb the ropes
True to the dream, for I have hopes !
HERE COMES THE MORN ( 2018 ) 2018/05/17
I miss the peace of morning sounds
The tender tug that calm expounds
The smell of coffee in the air
It seems to be most everywhere
The gentle hum as life revives
Before the world becomes alive
The quiet lull before the dawn
That signals all, here comes the morn !
