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 !

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 !

 

SCHEME AND DREAM ( 2018 ) 2018/04/25

Oh Santa Claus, dear Santa Claus

This is the wrong time of the year

However, I need ask because

Too soon the holidays are here.

We get so very bothered now

Just trying to keep up with life

It’s slipt away, I don’t know how

Between our courage and our strife.

I’d like to think that you and I

Perhaps could share the central theme

While knowing one day all shall die

Each needs accept both scheme and dream !

 

ITS OWN REWARD ( 2018 ) 2018/04/24

The signs of life are all around

My heart does quicken with their sound

I feel the pulsing of the beat

It seems to echo down the street.

See there the movement  in and out

Each quiver likened to one shout

Oh gentle dove, I hear your  “coo”

What is it I may do for you ?

We operate in finite ways

This is the vision of our days

Life’s aspects all are in accord

Each day shall bear its own reward !

 

IF WINTER COMES ( 2017 ) 2017/12/11

The wind, it whips around the bend

How long before the winter’s end

The snow, the sleet, the icy road

That soon becomes a heavy load

But when the elements do flee

The spring arrives to comfort me.

I’d like to greet another day

With fragrant blossoms on the way

There is a line I can’t ignore

I’ve heard so many times before

If winter comes, it’s true you’ll find

That spring is never far behind !

 

 

 

ELUSIVE REST ( 2017 ) 2017/12/10

The snow is clinging to the bough

The weather’s turning cold and how

The winter chill cuts to the bone

I think I’d rather stay at  home.

I’d like to be inside for now

So I may  keep warmed up somehow

And pick a spot close to the fire

Therein imagine sweet desire

Where in the end life does attest

Our souls do seek elusive rest !

 

A SPECIAL PRAYER ( 2017 ) 2017/11/02

I see the flag o’er coffins draped

Our values and our nation raped

And youth that we look forward to

Who shall inherit all we do ?

These are the victims of the crime

That worsens with passing of time

Oh Lord, please say a special prayer

To save us from this dark despair !
