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 !

 

 

OCCASIONAL VISITORS ( 2016 ) 2016/09/30

I had some company today

They were scratch-scratching on my door

They really hadn’t come to play

Although I knew what they came for !

There is a shelf about so high

That from the doorway you can see

And on it those treats that you buy

Stuffed into jars filled with goodies.

“Well how are you” said I to them

Two pair of eyes grew very wide

“How nice to see you once again

And would you like to come inside ?”

They never seem to make a mess,

They leave no crumbs upon the floor

They are polite and cause no stress

And leave no paw prints on my door !

I’d like to be a shining star

Whose light did twinkle from afar

Oh what great fun that it would be

If little children wished on me !

I’d like to be a chapel bell

That every day the hour must tell

From faraway you’d hear the chime

That’s how you knew what was the time !

But better still I wish that I

Had angel wings so I might fly

To greet you all at Peter’s gate

Just to make sure you aren’t late !

 

TIME CHANGES ( 2016 ) 2016/06/06

The morning dawns as daylight breaks

The world’s alive, the new day wakes

As time rotates around the sun

Some days begin when some are done.

I’ll never get the hang of it

I try to make the pieces fit,

How rapidly this life can change

I find the transformation strange.

What is today soon goes away

To leave just one more yesterday,

Tomorrow waits for dark to come

Ere we bid her joyous welcome !

The lady in the harbor that we call Liberty

Stands waving her approval for all the world to see

She’s been there far too long on that island in the bay

Think of all that she has seen and what she has to say.

May the Lord in heaven look down kindly from above

Protecting our great nation and values that we love !

 

 

OR CHEER ( 2016 ) 2016/01/07

High on the precipice I left my foolish fears

There silent and alone amidst my falling tears

Vowing not to be that sad soul forever more

Training my eye to focus on God’s open door

For He has said to all that we are welcome here

We’re free to come and go, to laugh and cry or cheer !

 

HEAVEN’S ANGELS ( 2015 ) 2015/05/04

Our lady in the harbor with torch held oh so high

She waves as strangers greet her while they are passing by

She is a precious omen that opens wide the door

To bid each one a welcome who comes here searching for

A little bit of heaven, the chance to be one’s own

Reach out to touch the angels who call this land their home !
