The winter winds are a world away

That’s where I wish that they all would stay

There are some things I could live without

Including ice, slush and sauerkraut !

Now it doesn’t matter how I try

My ideas don’t stand a chance to fly

So old winter gets to rear its head

Bringing snow and cold to us instead,

How I wish I could escape the frost

And this wintertime would just get lost !

 

 

 

 

SWEET GOODNIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/06/16

I’ve watched the snowflakes filter down

And heard the rain pelter the ground

I’ve seen the stars zip cross the sky

While clouds above are flying by.

I’ve felt the wind rush through the air

As autumn helped her trees go bare

The summer rains are fresh and clear

And hum a song the birds can hear.

The world’s in tune, the season’s bright

Tis soon to bid all sweet goodnight !

How sweet it is to greet each day

To wake each morn in peace and pray,

We thank you Lord for one more chance

To fill our days with life’s romance.

Who can be sure which season’s best

The springtime is so full of zest

While summer grabs our fantasy

It’s packed with much frivolity.

The fall rocks with its sounds and song

Until brisk winter comes along

But most can’t wait till snow appears

When all are caught in Yuletide cheers !

 

INTO THE AIR ( 2016 ) 2016/12/19

When I was young I fell in love

What was it I was thinking of

New fallen snow and frosty air

What did I see that wasn’t there ?

 

I was in love with winter’s spell

Cozy firesides if truth can tell

And as it happened I was lost

In passion strong that took its course.

 

I really thought our dreams came true

That you and I shared the same view

The winter once more brought the snow

Those fields of white began to grow.

 

But snow like life does fade away

To make room for another day

So like that snowman shrinking there

Some love just melts into the air !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SING SONG ( 2016 ) 2016/10/17

Well, thoughts are things and birds have wings,

Feathers come from geese and egret

The sparrow trills,the robin sings

And crows caw too loud in regret.

The skylark sings when sailing high

As falcons swoop from lofty nest

The hawk, he zooms up in the sky

Although I think the owl’s the best !

The lonely dove does pine for love

While the eagle mates forever

The world is round, blue skies above

Can that change the outcome, never !

The winds that blow and bring us snow

Seem without rhyme or reason

And force most birds to southward go

Till we reach a better season !

 

 

LIVES DO FLY ( 2016 ) 2016/09/24

The city lights grow dimmer now

They’re hidden by the fog somehow

The mist moves softly through the trees

And cloaks the rustle of the leaves.

I hear a moan that comes and goes

I feel a chill rush to my toes

Too soon the winter will be here

With vestiges of vision drear.

If all the frost and snow arrive

How shall we then keep warmth alive,

We’ll bundle up in winter’s best

Hats, gloves and scarves with padded vest.

Do not lose heart no matter what

We’ll give it all that we have got

The seasons seem to march on by

The years grow wings and lives do fly !

 

 

SUMMER DAYS ( 2016 ) 2016/09/02

Let’s say goodbye to summer’s days

With all her happy carefree ways

It’s sunny nature, flimsy clothes

A boater’s call of “thar she blows”,

A picnic lunch upon the beach

And no place left the sand can’t reach !

Well times do show and pass away

As we wake to another day

And realise that summer’s gone

While fall’s been left to carry on

But wait, there must be more to see

For time does reach eternity !
