BUGLE HORN ( 2017 ) 2017/09/11

There is a sound I love to hear

A bugle call upon my ear

Its brassy tone does thrill my heart

And chills my spine right from the start

My hair all seems to stand on end

As tones and notes begin to blend.

What started as a hunting horn

Before the age of bronze was born

Evolved into what we now know

The bugle calls to troops they blow !

 

IT SKULKS AWAY ( 2017 ) 2017/08/08

I hear a foghorn in the mist

Its throaty call, sandpaper kissed

Swaying branches shiver and shake

You’d think the sky was gonna’ break.

I love the sound of stormy skies

When lightning strikes and crackle flies

The weather comes, it goes astray

It spins about then skulks away !

 

COUNT THE COST ( 2017 ) 2017/08/04

I hear a sound, I think it’s rain

It pings against my window pane

Each droplet falling one by one

Like staccato echoes everyone

The drip, drip, dripping that I hear

Sounds like a trumpet on my ear

Crescendo rising to its peak

With no one there who dares to speak

The silence of the night is lost

There’s no one left to count the cost !

 

NIGHT TIME’S DONE ( 2017 ) 2017/05/27

I hear the echoes from the street

Of hasty and retreating feet

Some voices carry on the breeze

And filter through the veil of trees.

Those sounds that do survive the night

Will disappear in  morning’s light

The world awakes both old and young

When daybreak comes, the night time’s done !

 

 

 

 

 

NOT WRIT YET ( 2017 ) 2017/02/02

I wonder if those words I hear

Whispered so softly in my ear

While I am half asleep in bed

And murmurs swirl around my head,

I find I’m caught within this spin

Of all the lines I must fill in.

Sometimes I cannot keep the pace

The words seem to get lost in space

And need a sort of safety net

To catch those thoughts I’ve not writ yet !

 

NIGHT LIGHTS ( 2016 ) 2016/10/15

The sky o’erhead is overcast

It’s great expanse is far too vast

We’ve elements for any taste

And all that air a shame to waste

Compared to when we are aground

Where lush hills circle all around.

There is no sound so sweet to hear

As cheeky birdsong on the ear

I’d like to think that when they sing

The bells in heaven start to ring

The angels echo their reply

They light the stars in darkened sky !

My heart is wild, I know the tune

I hear the sound midnight or noon

It echoes sadly aft we start

Before life ends or lives must part !
