Most of us are
by some chilled
by others thrilled
but our guru the sun
gives equally to
all in each direction

Canadian geese are being massacred

in many states including New York.

They are murdered for food as well

and tortured in France, Germany,

and elsewhere for pate de foie gras.

the little nuthatch

The dells are
divinely drunk

The dawn sun climbs
beyond range of skylark
His light ever pouring

Sometimes infinite
patience is the
enabling of cruelty.
If we want to know
what to do we should
ask God

Plucking Feathers From A Goose


Sneaking up on the goose,
quietly, so she won’t hear!
If she hears you,
then the plan is foiled!

Sneaky, sneaky, you must be,
if you want to go
and pluck the feathers
from a goose!

Reach out towards her,
then quickly,
grab and pull
on her little tail feathers

Sneaky, sneaky, you must be,
if you want to go
and pluck the feathers
from a goose!

She yells,
as she spins around
and looks right at you!

Sneaky, sneaky, you must be,
if you want to go
and pluck the feathers
from a goose!

Her eyes seem to get red,
and she charges right at you!
Run, Run, Run!
She’s gonna get you!

The Meaning of Life

Just a thought!

                          The Meaning of Life                
The times of youth have come and gone
so you cherish all your days.
The things we took for granted
are now viewed in special ways.
A blooming flower or budding tree
will often bring a smile...
It's those simple things in life now
that amuse us for a while.
The Geese overhead or some squirrels at play
will tend to catch our eye
These things we see now everyday...
does it make you wonder why?
From the day you are born , It's The Meaning of Life,
You seek throughout your years.
In your search for truth and knowledge
came more questions, laughter and tears.
Your emotions ran wild and your need for discovery
took you to far away places
But, The Meaning of Life, is what they all seek...
All these friends in New Lands with new faces.
The answers you'll find, are not Worlds away or
hiding in Far away Lands
The "Meaning of Life" is a simple thing
Right there in the palm of your hands.
"All the Beauty God chose to create for us
And the things we were all Blest to do"...
That's "The Meaning of Life", and You see it now...
"All These Things God Created For You!"

This poem started with the title"Youthful Days"
and took it's own path,
Guess I started thinking
where I am now instead of where I was then!
