The  Christmas lights are burning bright

Invading  darkness of  the night

Colors  bursting clear to  the roof

Reverberating  season’s  proof

Extending  faith they wish  to share

With  believers  everywhere

Believe  the season’s  magic will

With  love  and joy,  each wish  fulfill !

There is a simple beauty

In all that one ought to see

This world that’s wrapt about me

Exudes great alacrity

With every single instance

Of my entire existence

I have tried to understand

With the wisdom here at hand

An adventure to expand

All so elegant and grand

This monment full of pleasure

In life for all to measure !

The night arrives so swiftly now

The moon too soon will make its bow

Hurrah,  say we, but what is there

Beyond yon tree, a blinking stare ?

Who is it there, who hides from me

Reveal yourself, so I may see

Who thinks to play a game or two

Let’s wait to see if I catch you !

Oh my,  oh my,  you brazen guy

You have escaped into the sky

And left me wishing that I might

Join you one day in magic flight !

I hear the sound of distant drums

Too soon the problem this way comes

Let’s gird our loins and standup tall

We’ll brace our backs against the wall.

Too late we learn there’s no redress

It’s not that easy, I confess

Tis better far to peaceful be

And smoke the pipe to victory !

This world’s full of magic, I feel it every day

Truth, I wouldn’t change it for any other way

Along with all its beauty, courage and elan

Like the great white egret that wades amongst the swan.

Seems to me the angels are watching all the fun

Sharing laughs in heaven with almost  everyone !

 

THROUGH THE DOOR ( 2017 ) 2017/02/04

I love the way the snowflakes fall

In their great rush to cover all

They land in heaps about knee high

And keep on swirling from the sky

This place is clouded in pure white

It sure is one dramatic sight.

Just feel the air it’s frosty cold

The snow’s a power to behold

It glitters bright for those who share

The magic and elusive glare.

I sure would love to greet the sun

Assured that soon the cold is done

Though we shall have to wait some more

Before this spring walks through the door !

 

 

 

 

WATER BABY ( 2016 ) 2016/03/30

I am so glad my life began

Close to the ocean’s magic span

All seasides bring great joy to me

I’ve spent my life next to the sea.

 

For I have been in Jersey born

And loved its waters night and morn

I’ve spent my childhood playing by

The edge of lakes or brooks nearby.

 

The sound of water seems to me

Like some majestic symphony

There’s never in my life a day

The water’s not a walk away.

 

To me the choice is matter small

If leafy pond or waterfall

Some stream meandering about

Or bubbling spring with water spout.

 

Now I’m a Pisces, water sign

Two little fishes unaligned

While one swims up, the other down

Whatever happens we don’t drown !
