    The silver Rain's soft pattering And lunar Glow through midnight shower, The glassy Stars-- winking out, Shy, from 'hind the Clouds this hour, Seem to sing harmoniously: "For Him twirl we Suns and Moons!" With Winds that whirl in waving Trees, Piping low their solemn Tune....

    Can common things contain a Rainbow Bright? As if mere white was white, but All Else, too Was lit and glowed within, just out of sight? This Hidden Color's in your eyes of blue. As if the very curvings of your smile That's glimpsed so often in a random face Has found in you ...

    Long has the Romance of the night Outbloomed the morning rose, And kiss that midst of Winter warmed Has hearts, in Summer, froze. This, 'cause light from lover's heart Is easy to behold When the Nature sings out dirges of The truth of dark and cold. Though inner dark is clearer...

    Though great and wise as all the world The greatest world I’ll never know; My dying heart and fading eyes Were blinder than an embryo’s. I built up wealth to scrape the sky To triple heights of Babble Tower, I laughed, but though my speech seemed sane My brain was maddened in its power. ...

    Think of a man who grabs a gun When the robber’s at the door, Who bid’s his children “lay low” Though his own cover’s poor. He bravely shouts “Get off my land!” Then accepts or fires a shot. He’d gladly see the both of them dead To see his family’s not. Our soldier and ou...

    Where's the Fires, where's Falling Lights To dance so deadly over city ways? Where's the misty green surreal glow And why's the Sun still shinning yellowed rays? Before all this, there should've been the Zombies Or plauge to steal our breath before the end. We wouldn...

    It's Shoulders just like yours and mine That hold the heavens high. If not for folk like you and me They'd fall out of the sky. It's harder work than it would seem To hold aloft the clouds, Any lack of diligence And soon they're drifting down. Every person down on earth ...

    Just as he who had Two working ears Should have been the type Of man who hears So the man who had Two legs to bear him Should have danced the steps The music dared him. Those who have a chance, But won't from fear; Might as well have Niether legs or ears. I, for one, will Always h...

    Cautious, opening up the door I spot my life-long enemy. I smile politely, then ignore Her smiling smugly back at me. I shake my head, she shakes hers too, Miming me grotesquely; I sigh, and she just mocks anew, Mimicking my misery. But, no. I guess I'm really not, Not so THAT unhappy,...

    The little Nymph that, with her gently stirring hands, Will gift a Life to humble plants who dot the land And animates, awakes the simple, common soil Reiterates our Souls’ own churning, living toil. Without it dead, yet men would fight their Inner Nymphs. Ignore It? Some, but most see as ant...

    O Maiden Mother of Christ and his Christians, Enthroned beside The High King's Throne, The twelve stars That crown your head Cannot outshine The faith you've shown. Our Gentle Lady, Our Guide in Blue, Who points our hearts To her Son above, You patiently strive To saint the ...

    Children have courage, They stand and share their laughter Just to see us laughing too, They usurp the reign of boredom, They make a house a home, They don't rationalize why something’s eerie And they save our fridges and walls from bland-land. Children are my heroes. Children d...

    Is there a sweeter friend to man than Death? For it is Death who, patient, holds the door. He's at our bedside for our final breath And visits every land on every shore. A mother mourns the son that's left her reach, But death enclosed both in his embrace. He guards his Guests within...

    I haven’t since and may never see a sight As cool and impressive as the one that day. Just out of my tent, eyes averted from the light Of the sun’s dim, but painful, morning rays. Looking down toward the lake, I’d seen the mist: It was mostly above it, but the water let Wisps of cotton...

    You don't have to feel happy To be cheerful, When your upset you can say You don't mind. You don't have to care much To be careful, You don't have to feel kind To be kind. And you don't have to feel love To be loving, but Oh! It makes things SO much easier. Y...

    Starting slowly, cautious, cool. Drifting only to it's shade, A fool, with a guarded fool, Smiles as it's game is played. The sun sets to coming night As two together wander off To its shady, woody light, Smiling at what some would scoff. Moonlight shines though passing clouds ...

    I look up at the starry sky, See the glow of fires. Could it be the agony of Lonely hearts' desires? Because I burn, I know I burn When feeling lost, alone. Could they be children, be people, Who shine, who need a home? Is that why the earth gravitates, Revolves around a star? Is...

    Fly away, my dear little bird To a world warm and fair. For a chilling breeze is blowing, Bringing the winter air. The sun's sweet warmth is fading fast, And though its light shines on I cannot feel its glowing touch Because you'll soon be gone. Go, for even now old Autumn Blo...

    Oh, the stone that's in my pathway Chose to lay where I was walking, Just to trip me as I walked by, Just to stop me as I'm talking. Oh, the flower on this pathway Chose to grow where I was going, Just to check me as I walked by, Making sure my smile was showing. For the people...

    The sun had kissed the tip of earth To say to earth goodnight, And then it dipped below the view, And doused its dying light. But I could see by other light, By twink'ling of the stars, And also the unblinking Moon That he had gone too far. His silhouette against the Moon, As dance...

    A Des'prate swimmer, lost at sea, With endless treading floats his way. He swims: For hours, months, for years? How long he floated, none can say. And swimming, head above the tide, Always, though, his body's below. He strives to pull his breath inside His lungs, weak and weaker h...

    In this world we seek Our place, purpose, value, Which we will find one day. Tentative and meek, We stake our paltry claims And whisper what we say. We only grasp at straws, We climb the smallest hills, Search, but don't believe. And though we try, we pause, And rarely dare to hop...

    Where it's cold and damp, but still I'd persist To climb the hill and go on one last ride. Where it's so thrilling I couldn't resist Surfing back down that silent, cool, white tide, And watching glistening crystals fall down, Feeling the rush of fantastical bliss, My cap a ...

    Tired of idling, just defending We wanted a real fight, Wanted to hit them where it hurt, To strike a blow for right! We vowed to win, to never fold,’ Unless we all were dead. Bravely we chased them day and night Heartened because they fled. We knew they were merciless men, The rules ...
