She Sang A Mariners Song

Out to sea an ocean lay
Beyond the fall of all the stars
I saw a world asleep on the horizon
And while the waves rolled in
I heard a voice rising up
A girl sang as if to soothe the world
Each note a rise and fall
To match the sea in perfect symmetry
The words she sang sailed
Into the soul a beautiful dream
She sang a mariners song
To inspire the heart to write
An ode to the sea and her song
The rise and fall of a timeless grace
As beautiful, as perfect
As any sunrise or sunset
Out to sea an ocean lay

Dark Dancing- Elle

There were moments
when she slipped
again to the edge of her solitude
which in full view exuded its dark charm;
she gazing it in the eye
her hand in my hand
my bringing her back
this once more again

back but still drawn
still able
in the next moment
to say yes
to that sweet interiorality
that withdrawalness
brings.

No one in there but her
when she went there;
no pressure;

The image is mortal.

Paintings won’t last longer than the wall it bears.
Image won’t last longer than the people who bear.
Your imprints will die when the people
Known to you die.
Your image is as much mortal as you are.

William Makepeace Thackeray

Ad Ministram

Dear Lucy, you know what my wish is, -
I hate all your Frenchified fuss:
Your silly entrées and made dishes
Were never intended for us.
No footman in lace and in ruffles
Need dangle behind my arm-chair;
And never mind seeking for truffles,
Although they be ever so rare.

But a plain leg of mutton, my Lucy,
I pr'ythee get ready at three:
Have it smoking, and tender, and juicy,
And what better meat can here be?
And when it has feasted the master,
'Twill amply suffice for the maid;
Meanwhile I will smoke my canaster,
And tipple my ale in the shade.

A Promise Kept

All alone in the darkness, all alone in the light,
All alone with anguish of my soul,
Through the long, dark, lonely night!
This is what her deceit gifted and what it stole:
No one here to comfort me, nor to allay my fears,
No one may take away the abject pain,
Nor may anyone wipe away the tears
That fall upon my pillow, again and again!

With a wish in my heavy heart, I pray for relief-
That my Good and Gracious God may quell my grief:
'Send me an Angel', I implore Him, 'make real,
The visage I see in my mind's eye, and in my heart, feel! '
We are almost there Heavenlyy Father, one more step-
All else is in order, I need now only, a promise kept!

The Secret Chamber

Once again I am caught
in elusive dreams

only two lovers can
enter the secret
chamber.

under an undisclosed
veil
we find each other.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The Fire of Drift-wood

DEVEREUX FARM, NEAR MARBLEHEAD.
We sat within the farm-house old,
Whose windows, looking o'er the bay,
Gave to the sea-breeze damp and cold,
An easy entrance, night and day.
Not far away we saw the port,
The strange, old-fashioned, silent town,
The lighthouse, the dismantled fort,
The wooden houses, quaint and brown.
We sat and talked until the night,
Descending, filled the little room;

Our faces faded from the sight,
Our voices only broke the gloom.

We spake of many a vanished scene,
Of what we once had thought and said,
Of what had been, and might have been,
And who was changed, and who was dead;

Put Those Pants Back On

Look, BOY!
Pull those pants up.
Or either take them off.

'But POP? '

Don't you 'POP me boy.
You heard what I said.

'Ooookkkaaay.'

What are you doing?
Put those pants back on.

'That's what I've been trying to tell you.
I am overdressed these days.
Some of the kids are totally butt naked.
And they are allowed because they have high grades! '

So what are you saying?

Perfect

I have twist of mind
I have big whirl stream
I have many question marks
I have unsatisfaction
I'm not always comfortable

How could I control my mind
Why should I understand completely
Where can I discard all regrets and misery
How could I live for so many things I don't agree

But all you want from me is
Perfection

Human Tendencıes

We can live as if we believe
We can love as him above
It is because we are born so
We can kill peoples will
We can hate as if no faith
It is because we are born so
We can film peoples theme
We can drain our brothers aim
It is because we are born so
We can turn right with unjust might
We can throw good into a villain hood
It is because we are born so
We can choose or even refuse
We can take the odd or accept God
It is because we are born so
He has give us the will to our choices
And thus all is inherited tendencies
