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 !

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 ?

 

 

THE BATTLE’S O’ER ( 2018 ) 2018/10/20

Lone vigil kept throughout the night

Doth end in early morning’s light

The stars all seem to bid goodbye

The wind reduced to but a sigh

Seems quiet has become God’s will

The battle’s o’er,  the heart now still !

 

TO BE WITH FRIENDS ( 2018 ) 2018/03/12

The shadows fall upon the eaves

To mingle in the evening breeze

The dwindling light now flickers slow

Soon tis the hour for light to go.

The sun is fading neath the hill

Before too long the wind is still

I hear a voice reach out to me

It’s searching for some sympathy.

The day’s been long and soon will end

The time has come to be with friends !
