Vellum and Leather

Vellum and leather,
Parchment and feather,
These things are all of a kind,

For vellum and leather,
Parchment and feather,
Are all in my heart entwined.

Vellum and leather,
Parchment and feather,
Coalesce nicely in books;

And vellum and leather,
Parchment and feather,
Await me in every nook.

Yes, vellum and leather,
Parchment and feather,
Are surely all of a kind,

For vellum and leather,
Parchment and feather,
Are all in my heart entwined.

Tell Me a Story

Tell me a story
And tell me true,
What is the best thing
That’s happened to you?

Have you traveled the world,
Strayed far and come near?
Have you written a book
Or brewed your own beer?

Ever fallen in love?
Been brokenhearted?
Ever finished a task
Before getting started?

Tell me a story,
And tell me true –
What’s the most memorable thing
That’s happened to you?

Returning Round

Return to me
The one I love,
Set him free
From Heaven above.

Return to me
That which I’ve lost,
Set him free
Or pay the cost.

Return to me
My heart’s desire,
Set him free
Or face my ire.

Return to me
The one I love
And set me free
To live in love.

Quiet Renewal

Quietly, softly,
The rain brings life to the world.
Quietly, softly,

A gentle morning
Whisper rouses the sleeping
World from its slumber.

Quietly, softly,
The rain refreshes the world.
Quietly. Softly.

Powerful Echoes

Power crackles
In the night
As from the clouds
Strobe beams of light –

Nature rules
With all its might.

Power echoes
In the day
As one more life
Returns to clay –

Nature’s power
On full display.

Oh, Life!

Oh, to see the sky
Alive again, to see the
Trees a-thrive again!

Oh, to smell rain on
The breeze and summer’s finest
Storms in changing winds!

Oh, to live and breathe
The miracles of life and
Love anew each day!
