Lost in the Dance

For a moment I lost myself in the dance,
and dared to dream beyond it.
The music stopped and you melted away;
and I woke from my hopeful vision.
Was it the partner or the dance
that held my heart?
Alas a bit of both;
though the partner is no more,
yet the dance remains.

Fortess of Grace

You are my refuge,
my strong and safe high tower,
The source of all my strength.

Everlasting strength,
Unending power,
Unassailable peace,
Mighty, perfect love.

Your passion overwhelms me,
Your love washes over
my spirit like a wave.

I hear you in the quiet,
I hear you in the storm,
The clarion call in battle,
The whisper that brings the calm.

Tower of Peace,
Tower of Love,

Elegy for Shoah

The train just keeps on running,
mile after weary mile;
the ghosts of tortured souls,
still linger on the rails.

Closer and closer to the factory,
the colossal death machine;
on and on the horror rolls,
the brakes have worn away.

The screams have all subsided,
but the echo never stops.
The treasury of life is robbed;
we can never know the cost.

O weep for us all, the silent ones;
who let the train roll by without a word.
We all were dumb,
and never raised a cry.

My Favorite Things (Manly Version) for Christmas

Chicago style pizza and microwave nachos
Tales of adventure with monsters and heroes
Balsa wood gliders with unbroken wings
These are a few of my favorite things

A finely tuned engine, a new set of tires
A full set of wrenches and channel lock pliers
Football in autumn and baseball in spring
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in tight sweaters with long brunette tresses
A dog who will fetch and not make big messes
A cold frosty beer after mowing the lawn,
These are the things I can think fondly on

When the boss yells, when a bone breaks
When I’m feeling sad, I simply remember
My favorite things and then I don’t feel
So bad!
