A Tire Swing Outside Of Old St Jo

Poem By Blue Dragonfly

Just outside of the old historical town of St Joseph, Missouri
T'was in the late nineteen fourties, old farm house, laid back, no hurry
A day in June or perhaps it was July
Lush geen grass, white puffy clouds, endless blue sky
June bugs tied to a string
Down in the hollow Katydids sing
Squirrels barking and flipping their tails
Over in the meadow a covey of quails
Tire hanging from the old Oak tree
Kids pushing eachother out as far as could be
Creek below was clear with fish and other things
Butterflies, hollyhocks, wildflowers much else memory brings
Sounds of laughter and giggling and a hawk cruising the air
Not hard to imagine that again I am there

A Very Refreshing Breeze

As I walked by the lake in the wee hours before the break of day
I thought about nothing at all but just absorbed the freshness that
came my way
The freshness wash's away all that dulls the gleam of life

He Was Not Dead Long And Then

He was swept along the tunnel and like a very gentle reef
Everything was cleansed, pains, sorrows, guilt, all forms of grief
A meadow of love is all that remained
Nothing else mattered it was all that had been gained

Love Depths Happen

First love is often very young
Maybe the curly haired little girl who sticks out her tounge
Later just before we enter our teens
We may notice a cutie who really fills out her blue jeans
