Icy crystals cling
Branches glimmer in the sun
Winter’s masterpiece

A Very Logical Answer (Poetic version of a story I recently heard

A teacher was, one day, teaching
Her second grader class
The tale of the three little pigs
When she turned to a lovely lass

The teacher ask of Jenny
What did the farmer say
When the little pig ask for straw
To build him a house of hay?

Jenny replied, “the farmer
Was surely brave and big
But I think he was surprised and said
Oh my gosh, a talking pig”

Valentine 2009

If I could paint a masterpiece
In portrait show my lady’s grace
As da Vinci in his finest hour
Attained in Mona Lisa’s face

If I could write a sonnet grand
In poem show my lady’s soul
That to the eyes of all who read
Rapturous tears would freely flow

If I could achieve these shining feats
Though great, sufficient would not be
To reveal the love that’s in my heart
Or impart my lady’s worth to me

I love you Babe

Springtime's Coming

Everything is turning green
Spring is just around the bend
Birds are singing everywhere
And Sonya’s got a cold

There’s a red bird on the patio
Sun’s a'shining, clouds'll have to go
Cat’s a'sneaking through the underbrush
And Joker colored a shoe

Yes Springtime’s coming
With all of it’s irony
Sunshine and common colds
Flu bugs and swimming holes
Springtime’s coming
With picnic’s and tornadoes
Sunburns and fishing poles
Won’t you hurry up Spring

Ode to Baldness

Heads that shine are “oh so fine”
And mostly trouble free
No hair to fly when wind is high
They’re always slick and neat

No hairspray or Brylcreem to buy
No brushes or pocket combs
And many ladies, I’ve heard it said,
Are fond of the old chrome dome

That must be why so many these days
Full heads of hair will shave
But, you can’t shave hair that isn’t there
I got mine the natural way

Now, you men of poetic métier
Whose hair has taken leave
Just write a verse if you’d care to link
With the bald headed poets’ league

Come Lord Jesus, Take Me Home

Originally written as a song, tune: Joan Baez, All my trials Lord, soon be over

This earthly life has got me down
When I get home, I’ll wear a crown
Come, Lord Jesus, take me home

God has promised me in his word
Eternal life through my risen Lord
Come, Lord Jesus, take me home

I’ve not yet seen it, but I’ve been told
Heaven’s streets are paved with gold
Come, Lord Jesus, take me home

Holy Spirit leads I know he’s right
He comforts me both day and night
Come, Lord Jesus, take me home

When life on earth has come and gone
I’ll live in heaven before his throne

Ain’t We Baby

Ain’t we got a good thing going, honey
Ain’t we, ain’t we baby
Ain’t we got a fine little pair of young, uns
Ain’t we, ain’t we baby
A cotton top boy and a blue-eyed girl
Prettiest things in this old world
Oh Baby, we got a good thing going

We got us a house out in the country
Got us a yard full of young pine trees
Got an old hound dog that’s full of fleas
And bushels of love and we’re living free
Oh Baby, we got a good thing going

We’re clearing land for a garden spot
Gonna have a bean and tomater crop
Raise a couple of hogs, we’ll have ham to eat
And next winter we won’t buy groceries
Oh Baby, we got a good thing going

PH, To Me

When I joined the ranks of poets
At PH a few months hence
I found a group of people
Whom I now consider friends

Though, as a poet, I suspect,
I’ll ne'er be thought renowned
Still I love to show my work
Where it’s seen the world around

This site has been a boon to me,
Writing more than I used to,
And I think, by reading other bards
My own work’s been improved

I see this site as a privilege
And, one not to be abused
When angry tensions oft arise
It leaves me quite confused

The House On Centerville Road

We stopped beside the highway
And gazed at the old house
I told my wife, “That’s where I lived”
When I was just a little sprout
It looked smaller than it once did
Back so many years ago
Even then it was old and creaky
But, as a kid, I didn’t know
Weathered boards were loose and falling
Saplings grew up through the porch
The old tin roof was rusted orange
And the yard looked like a forest
Here dwells my oldest memories
From so many years ago
When our young family lived here
In the house on Centerville road

Those walls once rang with laughter
And the energy of two young lads
Riding stick horses all around the place

Quick Retorts

Very often, when I’ve been in a group
Of folks who enjoy making smart remarks
Not for maliciousness, it’s all in fun
But, still, one needs a quick retort

For me, I’ll usually think of one
‘Bout fifteen minutes after everyone’s gone
And wonder “now why didn’t I say that”
But, by then, it’s too late, they’ve already gone

This one old boy that I’m around a lot
Seems always ready with a smart remark
It’s not very often he ever gets stopped
But, one got him good with a quick retort

It was when this fellow comes back to work
From his honeymoon with a great big grin
Old “Smarty” got ‘em cornered in the crowd and asked
“How many times on your first night, friend?
