WITH CHARITY ( 2020 ) 2020/01/10

This  silence that I  share is free

It  spreads its veil of  peace o’er me

And  quiets all  the disarray

That  one encounters day by day.

How  little do we know  of life

That  is content  and without strife

Contentment  is a foreign  thing

That  in our lives  has been missing.

Oh  Lord above do hear  this plea

Help  each to live with  charity !

Oh  life that  was and  is no more

Has  tiptoed softly  out the  door

And  just as  peaceful  laid  to rest

Amidst  the  ages mongst  the best !

The air  is damp and  holds a chill

The wind  is wet  and oh so still

There is no sound  that can be heard

No peep  or chirp  from any bird.

Tis like  a prelude  to a storm

Wherein  the clouds have  yet to form

Help me,  oh Lord,  to find  release

To spend  my days in  quiet peace !

 

AMEN.

 

 

 

 

 

 

GUARD OUR DAYS ( 2019 ) 2019/08/26

There is a  shadow that we fear

Its size  increasing year by year

It towers o’er our  greatest aim

And poses  threats to  God’s good name,

The world  appears to welcome all

Who  answer to old  Satan’s call

While sadly,  they may do his will

Until  their lives  at last are still.

Oh Lord  above, please bring us peace

From evil’s  grip  grant us release,

Help us  accept Your quiet  ways

Increase our love and  guard our days !

 

 

QUIET SURPRISE ( 2019 ) 2019/07/20

Oh little lamb you are so sweet

With wooly coat and cloven feet

This gift from God to all who care

A gentle lamb its peace will share

When Christ was born in history

The sheep and lambs were there to see.

These animals that will not fight

And cannot sleep all through each night

Will herd themselves in a close space

They’ll stay together, face to face

And in the morning when you  rise

They’ll greet you in quiet surprise !

 

GOOD NIGHT ( 2019 ) 2019/03/18

The sun sinks low in darkened sky

Preparing soon to say goodbye

The wind has reached its all time low

With reticence here and below

The evening creeps, its silence taut

The stars keep blinking as they ought

Tis time to bid to all good night

Until we wake with morning’s light !

There’s ne’er a sound upon the street

Not e’en the thump of running feet

One cannot hear the music beat

From cruising cars most indiscreet.

No blaring horns, no clacking sound

There’s only silence all around

I wonder why most city folk

Think country living is some joke ?
