What would You do to save us from

The storm we know is soon to come

How will You guard us, help us rise

Above this hell that’s in disguise ?

We need You now, teach us to care

That we may all Your wisdom share !

Take  a good look around and tell me what you see

The  beauty that is God’s and life’s  infinity

Please hold me by the hand and  teach me  how to pray

Help me to love God and to worship Him each day !

 

AMEN.

 

WHO HAS HEARD ( 2019 ) 2019/11/21

My  heart cries out  for all the pain

That  visits  man  again,  again

And  where’s  the peace we’re  waiting for

Seems  only stress  walks  through the door.

How  much longer must this  world wait

For  all  its  chaos  to abate,

What  happens to  the good that’s  done

As  years fly  by,  one  after one,

Revering  God,  His  perfect  Word

The  love and  wisdom all have  heard ?

 

 

CALAMITY IS HERE ( 2019 ) 2019/09/22

Well  here we are at God’s front door

What is it  we are  waiting  for

An  invitation  to come in

A smile, a kiss, a foolish grin ?

We’ve  not much time,  let’s hurry up

And place  our futures  in  His cup

We  cannot  fail to  understand

Calamity  is  close at  hand.

The world  is crumbling  as we wait

For  destiny to  crash  this gate

Oh,  Lord above,  do heed our  plea

Open  our eyes  and set us free !

 

AMEN. ( 2019 ) 2019/09/21

Through thick and thin we did begin

Our journey long by charging in

Our courage hasn’t failed before

We stand our ground forever more.

No cowardice to e’er be found

Wherein our qualities abound

We are a nation based on truth

Oft overcome by leaked uncouth.

It matters small we’ve manners rude

Or if our language appears crude

For we are but an arm of strength

Protecting God and friends at length !

 

STAND UP AND LEAD ( 2019 ) 2019/08/24

The years  have been passing,  one by one

Since this world we  live in  has begun

Now that’s a  longtime by  anyone’s gauge

Getting us  all to  setup  the  stage.

So now  here we  are ready to go

Grasping  our dreams  and  hoping  to grow,

Give  us a boost and  help us succeed

Grant us the  strength to standup and lead !

My heart flies high, it has grown wings

My soul so free that now it sings

Strains of music to teach us dance

Each moment brings a new romance.

The world round me is full of joy

With happiness one needs employ

However long that we are free

May God bless all we chance to be !

 

 

 

COME WHAT MAY ( 2019 ) 2019/08/10

Whatever war that has been fought

Tis one more lesson to be taught

For no one wins as each has lost

And every war does have great cost.

Sometimes it takes a lifetime long

To hear the ring of freedom’s song

There is a price that all must pay

To win the battle of the day.

Therefore when lives do meet their end

And each has chosen foe and friend

The choice one makes on that last day

Will stand forever,  come what may !

 

 

EXCITING INDUSTRY ( 2019 ) 2019/05/09

From my front window I can see

The most exciting industry

All of God’s creatures hard at work

With not a single one who’ll shirk

How marvelous that it must be

Assured our God provides for thee.

Tis true that neither you nor I

Have  the  ability to  fly

But we are charged by destiny

To help His creatures remain free

This has been so since ages past

Let’s help the system work to last !

 

 

 

OUR FRONT DOOR ( 2019 ) 2019/05/03

The dawn’s slow rolling o’er the hill

The air is tense, silent and still

This scene is quiet, fast asleep

While we’ve this mission we need keep

The world about is tossed amiss

And chaos rules instead of bliss

When will this peace we’re searching for

Arrive at last at our front door ?

 

 

HE LOST HIS WAY ( 2019 ) 2019/03/07

Old Solomon, he was a king

Who did possess most everything

He was the wisest of all men

None would e’er be alike again.

His instructions came from above

Conerning God and His great love

For forty years he ruled replete

His job, God’s Temple to complete.

This task achieved in seven years

And lauded by both prayer and tears

Oh sad end for King David’s son

He’d lost his way and was undone !

 

 

 

A SKY FULL OF CLOUDS (2019) 2019/02/27

Across the meadows of the sky

The scattered clouds are drifting by

Like puffs of cotton hung in space

All seeming to be out of place

The clouds diminish one by one

Until the skies of day are done !

 

THE GIFT OF LIFE (2019) 2019/02/22

Oh gentle beast, I see you there

Alone close by your hidden lair

The winter’s been and is half gone

Tis soon the season will march on.

Those little ones who have survived

Must learn right now to keep alive

To run and hide and secret be

Escaping this  hostility.

Oh what a lesson life does teach

To all who would adulthood reach

In fact, we know the truth is cruel

This gift of life’s not meant for fools !

 

 

 

 

CLOSE TO MY HEART ( 2019 ) 2019/02/04

Of recent times I’ve been so ill

With lengthy days and endless nights

That brought my life and mind a chill

And filled my soul with countless frights.

Tis true I am far better now

But need to be secure and smart

I’ll have to figure out just how

To keep God’s Word close to my heart !

 

 

ARE YOU AS TRUE ? ( 2018 ) 2018/10/27

Oh Solomon, where is thy wisdom now

What confidence your heart and you allow

What kindness does it take for you to live

With all that wisdom that is yours to give ?

Oh foolishness beyond your every dream

Are you as true or only that you seem ?

 

OUR LAST SIGHT ( 2018 ) 2018/08/02

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:03 am
Tags: , , , , ,

In the quiet of the evening

As shades of night begin to fall

And the time of our believing

Gently whispers goodnight to all,

Grasp the moment and remember

The days of old we used to know

Be it May or late December

In sunshine, rain or early snow,

Where we have learned to close our eyes

Each waiting the advent of light

With no assurance of surprise

This is no longer our last sight !

 

 

INFALLIBLE ( 2017 ) 2017/10/28

I sight the sunrise o’er the hill

It’s vision sends my heart a thrill

How wonderful it is to see

A world wrapt in God’s symmetry.

I hear the rustle of the leaves

They whisper in the morning breeze

What is it they all preach to me

Regarding God’s infinity ?

I feel the impact of His power

Increasing with each passing hour

The mark He leaves, indelible

Because He is infallible !

There is no way I understand

How tempers get so out of hand

I’ve never seen such anger shown

From persons both known and unknown

What is there that can rile one up

Enough to overflow the cup ?

We’ve seen the foolishness of some

Who cannot seem to overcome

This sad behavior they have used

On those they’ve bullied or abused

Perhaps through faith and time alone

They’ll seek God’s wisdom to atone !

Oh daddy dear what can you say

To get me through this scary day

And help me face my wildest fears

With the vast wisdom of your years ?

What shall I do now I am grown

To find my way back to my home

With you not there to shelter me

From  stress that life shares frequently ?

Oh daddy dear I miss you so

Too great a loss, why did you go

I pray we’ll meet again one day

In God’s sweet land of far away !

 

 

THE FIRST STONE ( 2017 ) 2017/06/21

Now I have trudged this rocky path

With angry crowds so full of wrath

I really don’t know what to think

Seems sanity is on the brink

There’s not much left to make great sense

The climate has become intense.

Participants are so inclined

Pretending to be dumb and blind

But stop before one does the deed

The rule in hand all must concede

The Lord demands that he alone

Who sinless be, cast the first stone !

 

 

 

SWEET GOODNIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/06/16

I’ve watched the snowflakes filter down

And heard the rain pelter the ground

I’ve seen the stars zip cross the sky

While clouds above are flying by.

I’ve felt the wind rush through the air

As autumn helped her trees go bare

The summer rains are fresh and clear

And hum a song the birds can hear.

The world’s in tune, the season’s bright

Tis soon to bid all sweet goodnight !

Oh mighty owl high in my tree

I pray you do not pressure me

I’m not prepared for your bad news

Luck is the thing that I could use.

There are some stories I have heard

About your wisdom and your word

How you instill a certain fear

In all of those who dare to hear.

Please help me out sir, if you can

For I am born of mortal man

My needs are small, my chances few

I sure would like some help from who ?

 

THE CLARION’S CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/05/31

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:30 am
Tags: , , , , ,

We shall not run out of values at stake

That is an action that we will not take

For the facts are what this is all about

Either spoken gently or with a shout,

Only time can tell as each day rolls on

There is this thought that we depend upon.

When the winter’s young and the cold is new

We own the courage to make this come true

That as we age and experience mounts

There is the moment when true wisdom counts.

You may do your best making fools of all,

But who will stand at last clarion’s call ?

 

 

 

DECLINE AND FALL ( 2017 ) 2017/05/26

Tis true that tears are often sweet

That courage rises from defeat,

That wisdom needs to curb its cheek

With all those words that it may speak.

While silence is the calmest way

To channel all our fears away

It’s working hard that is the call

To save us from decline and fall !

 

 

 

 

TRUTH PREVAILS ( 2017 ) 2017/04/27

I hope I never see the day

When all my words have fled away

And all the thoughts that fill my head

From morn to night are left unsaid.

But when that happens, heed me now

I pray you will recall somehow

My words have been both kind and wise

And taught you truth prevails o’er lies !

A man who ruled in ancient history

And was a victim of iniquity,

Inspired by heroic deeds galore

You’ve heard the legends and the myths before.

His name still haunts the halls of storyland

With visions bold and virtues deemed so grand

This man of wisdom held his honor high

And strove for justice long before he died !

HAIL ARTHUR AND HIS KNIGHTS !

LEGENDS ( 2016 ) 2016/06/08

Now I have trod thouands of miles

From the Highlands to the low

And wandered o’er its paths and stiles

Threading through the fields that grow.

I’ve hiked so many mountain peaks

And clambered over rough stone

I’m bored by shopping and boutiques

I prefer to trek alone.

It’s ancient times that intrigue me

With stories that I have known,

What’s captured me is history

And the legends it has sown !
