Storm's End




at storms end
seashell patterns
edge the shore

footprints of life
ebb and flow
receding at sunset

tomorrow a chill blows
cold and dead
yet men dream

The Dreamer







dreaming all the while
time goes by
we never noticed

summer's breeze
floats softly
across your skin

sweet brown eyes
fill my dreams
till autumn cast it's pall

and darkness reins
once again
as leaves fall on your garden

Evening

Morgensonne, c.1952 Art Print
                                        


evening comes softly
hues of violet green
fill my soul

When I Was Young








once I was young
walking in my sister's shadow
hidden in words and meaning
the sweetness of life a dream
were is the end?

waiting, always waiting
will he come to me?
today, tomorrow
all the same
all for naught

"I Dreamed A Dream"


There was a time when men were kind
When their voices were soft
And their words inviting
There was a time when love was blind
And the world was a song
And the song was exciting
There was a time
Then it all went wrong

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung
No wine untasted

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream to shame

He slept a summer by my side
He filled my days with endless wonder
He took my childhood in his stride
But he was gone when autumn came
And still I dream he'll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed
The dream I dreamed 
 
 
and still I wait
