When  I was young  and but a child

Our hearts ran free in woodlands wild

I’ve watched our days fade fast  away

As  little  children fail to play.

We  have another purpose now

To  Satan’s wish we  all must bow

What’s happened to our future bright,

It  vanished  silent  here  last night !

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 !

Oh gentle beast, I see you there

Alone close by your hidden lair

The winter’s been and is half gone

Tis soon the season will march on.

Those little ones who have survived

Must learn right now to keep alive

To run and hide and secret be

Escaping this  hostility.

Oh what a lesson life does teach

To all who would adulthood reach

In fact, we know the truth is cruel

This gift of life’s not meant for fools !

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 !

 

TODAY IS HERE ( 2018 ) 2018/05/19

The mist of morn is so discreet

It waddles in on soft cat feet

And sidles up without a peep

While much of life is still asleep,

All cuddled up wrapt in a quilt

That covers one up to the hilt

And close the eyes for one more snore

Before today bursts through the door !

 

NO LAST WORDS ( 2018 ) 2018/05/03

At times I sense a whistle

As it rides upon the wind

There silent as the thistle

While it begs, “please let me in”.

When the moment seems to die

And the quiet does not bend

All the world whispers “goodbye”

And each friendship must now end !

 

EARLY MORNING ROUNDS ( 2018 ) 2018/03/09

A glow of orange floods each room

To banish all life’s doom and gloom

The sun’s rays bouncing off the cots

If they are filled or they are not.

The morning stirs, the day begins

We cannot know who’ll lose, who wins,

The halls are quiet like a mouse

There are few sounds about the house.

I hear tip-toes along the hall

A squeaky wheel, a pregnant stall

The silence drowns my every thought

Too sad this spot where some are brought !
