Seize A Chance

A chance to glance at and to renew friendship
Isn't a chance to advance excuses and to sweep
Away a repast of the past under a carpet of kinship.


Please seize any chance to boost the roost of companionship
Alongside care, fare and a flair to reap
A chance to glance at and to renew friendship.

I plucked up the luck to spell stewardship
Which at a high table enabled me to dip
Away a repast of the past under a carpet of kinship.

A chance in France to activate and cultivate authorship
Came along without blame to tip
A chance to glance at and to renew friendship.

I cultured and nurtured friendship and sailed on a ship
To the Far East and earned a chance to rip
Away a repast of the past under a carpet of kinship.

Dwell, bail out and smell a chance to worship
God, to bless his name and to sip
A chance to glance at and to renew friendship
Away a repast of the past under a carpet of kinship.
