I Haven't Done My Homework!

I haven't done my homework Dad!

(Dad) Well my boy that's very bad!

But Dad my homework book got eaten!

(Dad) Don't lie to me or you'll get a beat'n!

But Dad it's true my book has gone!

(Dad) Now my son you're very wrong!
I saw it on the kitchen table
I do not like your silly fables

But Dad the Dog has eaten it
I saw him eat it, every bit!

(Dad) OK my son I've had it now!
It's homework time, dont want a row!
Ask your mum where it could be

Clouds

Down the blue night the unending columns press
In noiseless tumult, break and wave and flow,
Now tread the far South, or lift rounds of snow
Up to the white moon's hidden loveliness.
Some pause in their grave wandering comradeless,
And turn with profound gesture vague and slow,
As who would pray good for the world, but know
Their benediction empty as they bless.

They say that the Dead die not, but remain
Near to the rich heirs of their grief and mirth.
I think they ride the calm mid-heaven, as these,
In wise majestic melancholy train,
And watch the moon, and the still-raging seas,
And men, coming and going on the earth.

When

When.. I close my eyes
And picture you,
Emotions swirl
Painting pictures in my mind
Of flawless art

When... You wrap your arms
Around me,
All else fades away
Until the only sound remaining
Is the beating of our hearts

When... I gaze into your eyes,
At once, I am love blind
It's as if I'm staring into
The rings of light around the sun

When.. We are alone
Melting into one another,
Our love binds and blends us together

Children (Cinquain)

Children
Believe our deeds
Not empty words we say
For we are planting value seeds
Of Life.

The sword and the shield

Courage is not a sword to fight with.
Courage is ability to handle the sword.
Toughness is not a shield to defend with.
Toughness is ability to hold the shield.

A Parent’s Prayer

A parent’s prayer is for safety
for their daughter or son
who maybe called away to war.
A prayer to bring them back again
alive and well
and not a casualty of war,
bring them back to their loving home
to see their children grow
and not in a wooden box
never to be seen again.
A prayer for someone
to watch over their daughter or son
and keep them out of harms way;
so that they will never receive
the message that parents dread,
that their loved one is dead.

Lady Of The Lake

Today I talked
to the old lady
who lives across the way
she said she died
a hundred years ago today

She told me
of the time she saw me
fishing in the lake

I had to laugh

I said
if You've been dead
for a hundred years
it couldn't have been me
you saw fishing in the lake
I'm not even fifty yet

She said

Flaccid....

he of course has learned
to hate the word
with time unfolding in front of him.
she laughs.

Hymn To Colour

I

With Life and Death I walked when Love appeared,
And made them on each side a shadow seem.
Through wooded vales the land of dawn we neared,
Where down smooth rapids whirls the helmless dream
To fall on daylight; and night puts away
Her darker veil for grey.

II

In that grey veil green grassblades brushed we by;
We came where woods breathed sharp, and overhead
Rocks raised clear horns on a transforming sky:
Around, save for those shapes, with him who led
And linked them, desert varied by no sign
Of other life than mine.

To Be Real

to be real as a man
to be more
of the man
in our humanity

one must fall
into sin
and feel
the misery
of our ancestors

one must
experience what falling is
in sin
in guilt
in falling from grace

only then
can you feel what Adam and Eve
felt the first time
