SUN AND SHADOWS ( 2019 ) 2019/04/17


The morning sun peeks through the blind

In hopes it will an outlet find

It zigzags swiftly cross the floor

To bounce off mirrors by the score

The shadows puddle and disperse

Erratic movements seem rehearsed.

How fast the sunlight streams clear through

In such great haste, so much to do

You must not wince in sunshine’s glare

Just shade your eyes and do take care !

The sun has risen o’er the eaves

As shards of light do patterns weave

And all the limbs and branches seen

Cast shadows on each window screen.

Oh let the joy of morning sun

Enter each window one by one

To spread the light and share the heat

That sunshine brings when e’er we meet !

There is a hoary frost upon the ground

With a whistling wind that’s gathered round

And a feeling of a deepened chill

That cloaks today with impending ill

The fire is low, the morning is due

Let’s pray the sun will come shining through !

There’s so much snow upon the ground

Midst signs of winter all around

The wind is cold and icy breathed

It mixes with the air that’s left !

The signs of warmth rise here and there

While smoking chimneys pierce the air,

Fireplaces through the winter’s night

Will shed their pleasant warming light.

The shadows dancing on the wall

Invite us now to taste it all

With friends and neighbors far and near

So all may reap the seasons cheer !

Oh pussy cat, dear pussy cat, what is it that you seek

Hiding in a dark corner from which I now see you peek

Oh pussy cat, sweet pussy cat, all cuddly soft and warm

All heart and love and furry coat in such a friendly form

Oh pussy cat, I miss you so, you help me feel so strong

Come snuggle here beside me where both you and I belong !

 

AULD LANG SYNE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/11

True friendship is the kindest thing

It moves the heart to smile and sing

And raises all our hopes and joys

Like birthday gifts and children’s toys.

It’s a blessing that loving shares

To soothe the beast midst worldly cares

For without friends one’s cast aside

Into life’s emptiness outside

To languish wasted on the vine

Without the warmth of auld lang syne !

I’m not a fan of winter chill

A runny nose or feeling ill

Fact is I’d like to outlaw snow

In any place I choose to go.

But I don’t wish to be extreme

Or shatter others and their dream

Though I don’t ski, I know it’s fun

I have seen hundreds on a run.

Perhaps I’ll winter in the house

Snuggled up like a hearthside mouse

I pray that I’ll keep warm till spring

When sunshine smiles on everything !
