THE SONG OF BIRDS( 2020 ) 2020/05/25

There is this joy that mornings bring

The song of birds upon the wing

Their voices calling to their kin

An early morning checking in.

They chirp and croon familiar tunes

From breaking dawn through afternoons

Making each creature here belong

Though some are frail yet others strong

How wonderful that God’s so wise

He’s made His Own Bird Paradise !

The cattle low, the rooster crows

Tis quite early in the morning

The trees will bend, the wind it blows

Another day soon is dawning.

The squirrels hustle in the trees

Their booty they are defending

While pigeons roosting mongst the leaves

All their messages are sending !

I lost my heart  when I was young

To  Jesus, Lord,  through hymns we’d sung

The  music touched me to my soul

To be  with God became my goal.

Throughout the years I’ve wondered why

These  hymnal verses make me cry

The  beauty that is  God’s to give

Shall  in our hearts  forever live !

I know You Lord, You speak to me

With  every  measure  I can see

There from the treetops in the air

From rooftops, birds now perching there,

On  every branch in  every tree

Each bird sings his own song to me.

How beautiful  this  life does seem

With all God’s creatures in each scene !

My hearing has become acute

I hear a flutter on the roof

It sounds like angel wings to me

Accompanied  by symphony

Oh ecstasy, how my heart sings

In unison with angels wings !

Hallelujah, here they come, angels beating on their drum

Wishing all a happy day,  waiting for the saints  to play

Hear the voices sweetly sing,  every single note a praise

Bringing joy to everyone, let us now our spirits raise !



THE JOYS OF SPRING ( 2019 ) 2019/03/19

The wind, it whispers in the breeze

And blows its breath into the trees

It sings a song of joyousness

That’s gathered in the robin’s breast.

The mockingbird sounds crisp and curt

He does not wish a songbird hurt

And mimics all he can,  but still

He stops short of the whip-poor-will,

You’ll hear the chorus of each bird

It is the best I’ve ever heard !

There is a joy that springs anew

Each day the holidays are due

And now that Christmastime is here

It is the best of all this year.

I love remembering the sound

Of blessed music all around

With songs and voices ringing out

And children singing hymns devout.

The love of God  and all our kin

Are blessings we can revel in

May all the years that lay ahead

Have sugar plums dance in our head !

Now in the distance you can hear

The chapel bells ring loud and clear

The sound it stretches cross the land

Bringing a joy most understand.

With voices raised the choirs sing

Those words of love from God our King

We hear you Lord and will obey

Please keep us safe from day to day !

Oh how I wish that I could sing

Another happy feel good song

Where all the choirbells will ring

And those nearby may  join along !

God’s music plays, I hear the sound

Reverberating all around

The rustling of the varied trees

With branches swaying in the breeze,

While birds o’erhead with fluted tone

Keep warning us this is their zone

The insects add their special hum

That covers the entire spectrum.

The ocean’s rush, the thunder’s clash

The drip, drip with each puddle’s splash

These are the notes that we all hear

God’s symphony sweet on the ear !

Sometimes I think when I’m abed

That I hear dancing o’er my head

Then I recall the years gone by

Aft my two feet had learned to fly.

I never thought that I was great

But dancing did my soul elate

Sometimes I stumbled, took a fall

Not in performance, not at all.

Yet there were times I’d miss a beat

Or needed to replace a cleat

I loved to dance, still wish I might

Too long ago, I lost that fight !



THE SOUND OF POETRY ( 2015 ) 2015/04/25

The poet paints a picture but not with paint and brush

His words create the image there’s music in his touch

Each has his own conception there are no two the same

Tis an old profession and Shakepeare’s favorite game.

Some think the words are foolish and pale in empty air

Please remember David and his Psalms we all still share

His words were so profound they will live forever here

They brought us close to God they will never disappear !

Oh how I miss each Sunday morn

Sounds echoing since I was born

Those happy tunes or plaintive hymns

From early on till evening dims.

Their voices raised with one accord

The hopeful sing and praise the Lord,

My mother’s voice so sweet and strong

Would sound aloud the whole week long.

She loved to sing each olden tune

About romance, lost love or moon,

I wish I knew if heaven rings

With hymns and songs an angel sings !

The air is sweet the birds are free

To sing their song, God’s symphony

The leaves that rustle in the trees

Play melodies upon the breeze !

The crickets in the bush keep time

While buzzing insects hum a rhyme

Now if it rains the pitter-pat

Of falling drops could be B flat !

Such marvels that our God will bring

It seems He thinks of everything !



SWEET ANGELS ( 2013 ) 2013/09/04

My mom quite often spoke of angels

Blessing us from their holy bethels

As if they’d been her life’s truest friends

Possessing great skills making amends.

Truly she loved their heavenly ways

Frequently singing hymns in their praise

And speaking with God, as I recall

From early rising till even’s fall.

I miss her sweet voice, she loved to sing

Angels can hear her songs echoing !
