As I look out o’er roofs and chimney top

There’s no place I can make my vision stop

That is not brick and mortar all alone

Accompanied by wood or tar or stone.

Now rooftops are a lonely barren place

Lacking enthusiasm to fill our space

They bring no beauty or accommodate

In any way the grace of man to date.

Of course they serve a purpose  that’s a must

Saving all from cold, wind, storm, rain or dust

But I would love to look across that span

Envisioning God’s beauty all I can !

Can you hear the tumult of the wind

It whines aloud  that it be let in

The shutters tremble, the shingles roar

Can you feel the rattlng of the door ?

The mighty wind blows so fierce and loud

Where it gets caught bullying each cloud

Why won’t it move in a calmer way

And save its power for another day ?

There are those days I can’t explain

Why sunshine makes me  feel like rain

Or why a rainbow in the sky

Compels one to begin to cry

There’s so much good I’d like to share

If only there were some to care.

But I’m afraid those folks I knew

Have disappeared, all but a few

And fate has stolen every friend

Too long before their life should end

It seems there’s great conspiracy

To hasten world propriety.

We’re relics of another time

Another place, another clime

There’s no space left for us to fit

We’ll have to make the best of it

While stating this we must resign

It’s over now we’ve no more time !

 

EXTRA STUFF ( 2016 ) 2016/01/13

The walls about familiar be

They are a comfort here to me

The air I breathe is full of scents

And gathers round as my defense.

I find the years have winnowed down

The items I now keep around

Perhaps with time we all abuse

The many things we fail to use.

Some dear old friends remain intact

A cherished book that’s eared exact

A box of photos on the shelf

Mementos of my younger self.

Whoever thought I’d live so long

I would declare that they were wrong

Four score and five is time enough

To gather tons of extra stuff !

 

 

DIGNITY ( 2015 ) 2015/08/12

A tiny craft upon the sea

To challenge private destiny

That faces forward to the sun

Before the close of day is done,

The will to live with honesty

Ambition and alacrity !
