A SELECTION OF SOME OF MY POETRY

Life Poems


Our Seasons

  It was the days that were our Springtime

When we first knew we were one

Sharing all our thoughts and freedoms

As though life had just begun

  

 Yes we knew such sweet completeness

With the one and with the whole

You could read my heart; I could read your mind

For we had each otherís soul

  

Summers that we knew were endless

And the days all full of love

With the friendly earth blow us

 And the glowing stars above

 

Yes we knew such sweet completeness

With the one and with the whole

You could read my heart; I could read your mind

For we had each otherís soul

  

We would walk the autumn highways

We would travel with the wind

Keep the sun and rain there with us

Each would always be our friend

  

Yes we knew such sweet completeness

With the one and with the whole

You could read my heart; I could read your mind

For we had each otherís soul

  

Over stream and cross the river

To the mighty oceanís shore

In the Winter where we wandered

There was always to be more

  

Yes we knew such sweet completeness

With the one and with the whole

You could read my heart; I could read your mind

For we had each otherís soul


WHERE I STAND

I stood gazing from my island

To the larger realm beyond,

I saw a land full of cold emptiness

While my land was full of song.

 

WOULD THERE BE A BRIGHT NEW RAINBOW?

WOULD THERE BE A POT OF GOLD?

ITíS ALL OUT THERE, COME AND FIND IT

SO THE MEN IN SUITS HAD TOLD.

 

Once my thoughts had turned to leaving

Just to see what I could find,

In that land full of bright promise -

Leave my island home behind.

 

And I walked the hills and wondered

Sat down by the stream and thought

And I came to the conclusion

I might give this up for nought.

 

So I strung the lines and whistled

And I lay the pots and smiled

Ten green acres where my heart lay

Worth more than a million golden miles.

 

Where my head would fill with thunder

And my heart weigh down like lead

And put back my worldly chattels

Kept the world I had instead.
