At times I’m sure I hear the sound

Of children laughing all around

I hear the patter of their feet

In clitter-clatters from the street.

Oh how I wish that I were there

As joy was rising in the air

Remember how it used to be

When hearts were young and love was free ?

Those days are gone, they won’t come back

Our lives today under attack

Why must we suffer such distress

I do not know, what is your guess ?

The winds of March are queueing up

Before life brews its final cup

The tedium of time is here

Each destination looms unclear

Perhaps tomorrow each may learn

The heritage that we have earned ?

 

THE SAME ( 2017 ) 2017/11/20

There is this thought I entertain

From winter snow to springtime rain

The summer’s warmth, the leaves of fall

Sweet memories we all recall

They fill my heart, my brain implodes

With pleasures set to soon explode.

Oh how I wish that all could see

Our strength in great diversity

The young and old, the halt and lame

The large or small, we are the same !

The world we knew,  today becomes the “used to be”

To  leave us with sensations of futility

Times change and fade into this generation lost

Where one can never learn what is the total cost

Farewell to dreamers, writers, artists and their kind

They have a need of safe environments to find !

 

ICONOCLAST ( 2017 ) 2017/08/19

So many children do not play

So many dreams have gone astray

While many values have been trashed

Too many idols now are bashed.

We live in times too tough to bear

There seems no kindness left to share

Our world is dying bit by bit

And everyone is part of it.

Dark clouds are gathering above

Obscuring all our acts of love

Hold on, hold on, the die is cast

Let’s welcome the iconoclast !

 

 

 

 

RESPECT ( 2017 ) 2017/03/22

I’ve told you about my teddy bear

And all of the dreams we two did share

We’ve spoken of my Raggedy Ann

You know I was her favorite fan.

While my mom and dad who loved me so

Taught me my manners and how to show

Kindness and love to all that I greet

How to keep my faith and be discreet.

From my nana dear who was so wise

And my grandpop with those laughing eyes

I learned that life might be a great joy

If simple respect we would employ.

For whom in this world devoid of hope

Could manage to win or learn to cope

Without the aid of the God we know

And all the angels  we’ve met below ?

 

 

 

THE MAGIC’S GONE ( 2017 ) 2017/03/12

Do you wonder what the morrow brings

Besides the tunes that each songbird sings

What would it be like without that song

Perhaps a place one shouldn’t belong ?

Some pleasant words or a  grateful chat

We’d speak about either this or that

And turn away with a smile or two

While friendship’s  shared between me and you.

Oh how I yearn for the days long gone

When friends were those you might count upon

Life used to be full of many dreams

But the magic’s gone or so it seems !
