Poetry

Amber Grass

At last, the hope of Spring has come
Tis naked ‘pon the amber grass
Yearning for the light of day
Brushing gainst my back alas
-
I feel the sun break through the glass
Inside the meadows, side rungs rail
Pale Edgings of cold winter shale
Uncovering the litten pass

Susurrous Sounds

I hear the susurrous sounds
Pins that pluck on downward
The music box is playing
Round and round with spring
Cylinders are moving
Slipping o’er bumps
Tuning forks and sounding beams
Soothing me in dreams
And I love you so
With all my heart and soul
Sleep will soon abound for me
Sewing up the seams

Snow Bright

A beautiful clear Mornin
So wintery and white.
A cup of sweet tea, Chamomile
Darlings dew delight
-
I think I may
A vanilla cream I might
So soft and light
With day dreams in sight
-
As time rolls the tongue
Honeys afterglow
In my hearts eye wide
Photos of snow
-
Disappearing hands
in lieu of light
new day calling
The new day bright

A New Years Prayer

“Your crown overflows with your bounty
Your cart overflows with your abundance”
Psalms 65
-
Happy New Year dear one
-
May your New year be bright and full
With blessings to unfold
Love, peace and happiness
All you can hold
-
In His wisdom and His love
Trials circumvent
From the Saviors mold we go
Confident and bold
-
From the promise of the dawn
Your golden future sown
In your heart His happiness
His harvest surely grown k

A New Years Prayer

Bumps and Jumps

“As the Deer panteth for the water-brook
So my soul longeth after Thee”
Psalms 42
-
Each new morn; The Lord doth bring
His beauty He bestows
The heart in holy strength and hope
The Spirits budding rose
-
With spritely springing, power, we cope
Oh Savior Christ; we learn
And look to You; our bright repose
We yearn for Your return
-
As the brook will wind and turn
There’s no more fear for bumps
What a joyful song we sing
Trusting God, for each new jump
-
We praise You by the river side
We praise You In the flood
Our heart and soul, is purified
There’s cleansing in the blood

Have a joyful New Years friend
You are Beautiful

All God’s Dreams

Keep all your dreams
All God’s dreams you can find
But don’t let the worldly things
Consume your heart or mind
-
With a heavenly mind
God’s wisdom will abound
and keep your feet firmly planted
On stable ground …
Humble beginnings,
remembering your roots
With faith in God
You’ll bear good fruits
-
Meditate upon
God’s word, His truth
Come to Him as a child
As you have heard in your youth
-
Trusting in Jesus
So safe and secure
Trusting in Jesus
He’s your dream come true

Echo of God’s Love

In God’s window of my dreams
With sunshine in the store
All the little dolphin joys
Are breaking through the door
The old familiar whistle call
To come to rest inshore
The echos heard by loyal chums
Of kettles, bowls and drums
A love song hidden in my heart
God’s glory heard doth incubate
I am surely satisfied
When I learn to wait

Christmas Bells in Clover

Even though they’ll be no ring
Or message, on the phone
There is a love light, shining bright
Above my headboard roan
-
Safe within my heart, heaped up
Sweet Presence, present there
A silver tinseled tree of blue
In hues of Jesus here …
-
Memories, so strong and wise
Of root and rung and rover …
My heart aglow, with her bright grin
Christmas bells in clover
-
Reminding me, of love that sings
Her lullaby, ne’r over
With all the Love, that Jesus brings
Christmas time in stover
-
Thinking of you, Mom
This Christmas Time
And always …

The Beautiful Kite

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; an lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths”

The Beautiful Kite

Investing the time in building the kite
A string and it’s strength… and a test of the fight
When all of a sudden, The wind took to flight
The tension grew tight, I held on for dear life
-
(Fly away pretty for your own sake
Fly away beautiful; string don’t you break)
-
Just past my reach, in the great big sky
I let go, and Let God as it floated on by
The one in control of the wind and the tail
Would protect the wild kite
Until safely in veil
-
(So fly away pretty for your own sake
Fly away beautiful; string’s they do break)
-
I remembered the Charge
Never hold on too tight
In God’s love, trust is freedom
and all is quite right

Rest well and sweet dreams

My Irish Lullably

Turn the key, it’s always open love
Lift your weary eyes unto God
Let him soothe you now, and bear all your pain
Come to The One who frees all
-
If Your heart, be heavy from burden
He’ll break all those shackles your in
Let Him cleanse you deep … and you lull you to sleep
Be washed, white as snow, in the fountain …
-
Leave all your sins, at the cross …
Come rest, in His wonderful love
Fall like a babe, in a Mothers arms
In Jesus … You are safe from all harm
-
Leave all your sins
At the cross … “A leanbh”
Come rest, in His wonderful love
Fall, like a babe, in a Mothers arms
In Jesus … You are safe from all harm
