An Angel Came

Poem By Willie Walker

Little Baby, Little Toy,
Daddy's Darling, Momma's Joy.

Sleeping Quietly, Angel Eyes,
Never Laughing, Never Cries.

Precious Infant, Tiny Soul.
Oh! So New, Oh! So Cold.

Kiss My Darling, Kiss My Child,
Let Me Hold You, See You Smile,

Someday Dearest, Someday Love,
I'll Hold You Tightly, In Heaven Above.

Remembering Childhood

The setting sun in the winter skies
Reflected dimly in the old man's eyes.
On a patio porch in a plastic chair
Close beside him his dog lay there.

Night Terrors

Night Terrors

Whippoorwill calls in the swamp at night,
Lonely soul, flies it's fluttering flight.

The Chattahoochee River

The Chattahoochee River is muddy and deep,
Rolls restless in her bed, and never sleeps.
She churns, whirls, and sometimes creeps,
But the Chattahoochee River never sleeps.

Dark Canyons Of Lost Souls

Twisting, turning, groping, along the darkened canyons of my soul,
Stumbling blindly, feeling the cold slimy fabric of my existence.
The beings of this world are crazy, driven, obscene, and insane,
With lives of real desperation, hearts full of sorrow and pain.


Grandpa was apt to play when Grandma was away.
She went to Florida with her siblings for to stay.
Grandpa shined his boots and donned a new white shirt.
He slicked down his hair and made sure his hat was square.
