I thank you God

September 12, 2014 § Leave a comment

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any–lifted from the no
of all nothing–human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

e.e. cummings
1894-1962

Endangered Animals

April 22, 2014 § Leave a comment

Come on don’t you have a heart?
You don’t want these animals to depart?

Forget the x factor and the top ten singing chart,
What about the endangered animals and the poison dart

The arnour leopard, the Siberian tiger and polar bear,
They are so gorgeous, it is just not fair.

If I say their Latin name, will you listen more?
Oh Louis please do nt say this is a bore.

Varanus komodenis, komodo dragon by the way.
Why does man have to take them all away?

Man you are such a fool.
Snakes killed alive for handbags that is just not cool.

Please listen to my passion,
although it may not be in fashion.
I can not sing it, you might laugh,

I can not dance, you would say I was daft.
But I am seven
And I want these animals to last!!

– Olivia Binfield

 

 

With a smile…

‘Tis easy enough to be pleasant, When life flows along like a song; But the man worth while is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong.

The Middle

Hey, don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on.
Just try your best, try everything you can.
And don’t you worry what they tell themselves when you’re away.

It just takes some time, little girl you’re in the middle of the ride.
Everything will be just fine, everything will be alright.

Hey, you know they’re all the same.
You know you’re doing better on your own, so don’t buy in.
Live right now.
Yeah, just be yourself.
It doesn’t matter if it’s good enough for someone else.

It just takes some time, little girl you’re in the middle of the ride.
Everything will be just fine, everything will be alright.
It just takes some time, little girl you’re in the middle of the ride.
Everything will be just fine, everything will be alright.

Hey, don’t write yourself off yet.
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on.
Just do your best, do everything you can.
And don’t you worry what the bitter hearts are gonna say.

It just takes some time, little girl you’re in the middle of the ride.
Everything will be just fine, everything will be alright.
It just takes some time, little girl you’re in the middle of the ride.
Everything will be just fine, everything will be alright.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

February 7, 2014 § Leave a comment

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Robert Frost

’13 going on ’14

February 3, 2014 § Leave a comment

Starting the new year with a lovely day,
Learning from our 2013 mistakes,
Not denying, but being true,
It did happen. It happened to better you.

So what if things didn’t go your way,
You thought, it was what you wanted always.
With 2014, better times await.
So lets welcome the New Year, being true…
It will happen. It will happen to better you.

Where Am I?
