PEACE WITH GOD ( 2020 ) 2020/06/12

Oh   how  I wish  I  were a  bird

Who  mimicked  every  song  he’d  heard

It  would  be  such  great  fun  to  do

A  gift  of joy  between  we  two.

We’d  sing  our  tunes each  morn  to  night

From  early  mass  until  midnight

These  pleasures  add  to daily  life

Though  riddled  by  anger  and  strife.

Now  if our  melodies  are  sweet

Perhaps  this  anger  we’ll  defeat

And  seek  a reason  to believe

Our  peace  with  God,  we  shall  achieve  !

There is this joy that mornings bring

The song of birds upon the wing

Their voices calling to their kin

An early morning checking in.

They chirp and croon familiar tunes

From breaking dawn through afternoons

Making each creature here belong

Though some are frail yet others strong

How wonderful that God’s so wise

He’s made His Own Bird Paradise !

I lost my heart  when I was young

To  Jesus, Lord,  through hymns we’d sung

The  music touched me to my soul

To be  with God became my goal.

Throughout the years I’ve wondered why

These  hymnal verses make me cry

The  beauty that is  God’s to give

Shall  in our hearts  forever live !

I know You Lord, You speak to me

With  every  measure  I can see

There from the treetops in the air

From rooftops, birds now perching there,

On  every branch in  every tree

Each bird sings his own song to me.

How beautiful  this  life does seem

With all God’s creatures in each scene !

My hearing has become acute

I hear a flutter on the roof

It sounds like angel wings to me

Accompanied  by symphony

Oh ecstasy, how my heart sings

In unison with angels wings !

Oh robin red, in your best suit

You loudly sing and look so cute

I wish I knew how to convey

The joy I’ve felt with you today.

You bring me hope the gloom can’t hide

The warmth I feel for you inside

Your perky song and boldened ways

Bring happiness to all my days !

The steeple bells ring loud and clear

Another Sunday morning’s here

Let’s raise our voices in a song

To show our Lord we do belong.

The choir sings its chosen hymn

With words of glory lauding Him

Please, God on high, rejoice with us

That we may share the Glorious !

The sun is shining in the sky

The gentle breeze is passing by

The trees are laden with new green

There’s ne’er a cloud that can be seen.

The birds are busy housekeeping

Sometimes I hear the faint peeping

I ponder how much more we’ll wait

Until they gather at the gate

I love to hear their joyous song

It makes me feel that I belong !

Can you hear the angels sing

Praising God who is their King

Voices heard above the roar,

Springtime rain or Hypnos snore

All those sounds to please the Lord

All the love we can afford ?

I hear those church bells loud and clear

The peals fall sweetly on the ear

I wonder if the Lord above

Finds this a simple show of love ?

When all the choir voices raise

Their hymns to God in grateful praise

I wonder if their thrilling sound

Will reach His ear while heaven bound ?

There is a song I used to sing

I hear its faint familiar ring

It echoes often in my mind

Recalling shadows that rewind

Of days that are forever gone

Though memory still lingers on.

If I should pass this way once more

I’m sure I’d walk through that same door

To visit what was yesterday

Once more to hear that tune replay !

I still remember Christmas Day

That little church seems far away

I miss the sound of choir sing

Sweet children’s voices caroling.

Pleasant whispers from the vestry

The kindly way things used to be

Just a piece of celestial air

Around the bend and up the stair,

One short step that’s not too much more

We are outside of Heaven’s door !

I wish I were a mockingbird so I could sing the whole day long

I’d fill my time with happiness and live a lifetime full of song !

I wish I were a robin red who sings a flutelike warbling tune

That echoes after eventide and carries on under the moon !

If I could be a whippoorwill I’d roam the forest late at night

The song I chant you’d recognize, I sing, but always out of sight !

 

SERENADE ( 2013 ) 2013/12/08

A song of joy he brings to you

The notes he sings from out the blue

Will hang in air so gently sweet

This serenade of love complete,

Phrases that emerge unbroken

With esteem its tender token.

Listen closely and you will hear

A sprightly tune too full of cheer

That lends to life its special edge

Melodic bird on windows ledge.
