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
THE SNOW SHOW ( 2019 ) 2019/01/30
This world lies cloaked in veils of white
That floated down all through the night
The morning woke to wond’rous sight
All layered like ice cream delight.
The air so crisp, it filled each room
And chased away old winter’s gloom
Let’s pray the laughter will resume
As happy smiles begin to bloom !
SIMPLICITY ( 2019 ) 2019/01/29
The sun it rises in the sky
Preparing to bid morn goodbye
The day progresses faster now
Soon twilight will appear somehow.
The sun does sink beyond the trees
The moon it rises with dark’s ease
The stars above sparkle and shout
Tis now the time for faith devout !
LIFE’S SIMPLE MELODIES ( 2018 ) 2018/12/28
Mocking bird, mocking bird sing me a song
Keep me amused through this afternoon long
Oh sweetest of sounds, please show me the rest
Sing me those melodies I love the best !
DOES NATURE SPEAK ? ( 2018 ) 2018/11/25
I glanced out o’er my yard today
To watch leaves slowly drift away
As one by one they sailed on by
A gust of wind made each one fly.
It seemed as though they spoke to me
But silence is their destiny
There’s too much that I need to learn
The list is long, it’s turn by turn.
I often wonder what we’d do
If nature had a word or two
So you and I might understand
What is the message of the land !
THE WINTER GAP ( 2018 ) 2018/11/21
The tender shoots have gone to bed
They chose to doze in spring instead
The cherry trees have gone to sleep
The willows now no longer weep !
All of God’s seeds are taking naps
Avoiding all the snowy traps
The season sure makes one big mess
With slosh and cold, I must confess.
Think of all the joy it will bring
When God appears in early spring
Returning treasures we had lost
To snow and ice and winter’s frost !
STANDS GUARD ( 2018 ) 2018/09/16
The sun peeks out from behind each cloud
A chorus of birds all sing aloud
While the air about still smells as sweet
The wind has mellowed and is discreet.
What a perfect day just fore the storm
Where life as we know it is quite norm
Let’s carry on as we have before
And pray the Lord stands Guard at our door !
