Drifting With the Breeze!
By L. Don Oliver
Upon the breeze, the changing leaves,
Are carried hither and ___;
Never to last, their final cast;
In time they will eventually ____;
They are tossed about, up and down,
They slowly drift and fade ____;
Then turning from rust, back into dust,
It's the deceivers they must ____;
There if you please, the falling leaves,
They are much a lot like __;
We're thrown about, with mistrust and doubt,
And things we dare not _______;
This should not be, for us to see,
When there is always a better ___;
A solid rock, will absorb the shock,
No matter what game they ____;
A Swampyville Spring!
By L. Don Oliver
In my seventy third Spring,
The squirrels are digging up their stash;
The little sparrow is on the wing,
The honeybee and hummingbird about to clash;
The Blue Heron is on it's perch,
Waiting for a tasty meal to swim by;
The flowers are unfolding their blooms,
Where the warbling wrens still fly;
A black racer snake chasing a lizard,
The fish are leaping in the brook;
A frog croaking upon a lily pad,
The hungry bear departs it's nook;
An unconcerned cold blooded Alligator,
Lazily sunning upon a fallen tree;
A large clump of water hyacinths,
floating to where they shouldn't be
Fishing with an old cane pole,
Watching the cork bobbing along;
Lifting the line from the water,
No worry that the bait is gone;
Remembering a far away youth,
Searching for a four leaf clover;
Perhaps one day I will find it,
Before this existence is over;
The leaves are shading green,
The cypress trees are growing tall;
I will enjoy every approaching spring,
Until, for me, there is none at all;
