Gather Ye Rose-Buds

.

“Gather ye rose-buds

while ye may,

Old Time is still a-flying;

And this same flower

that smiles today,

Tomorrow will be dying.”

good friend passed away

death a stark reality

reincarnation

Poem:

.

a warm breeze keeps the pinwheel spinning
the wind chimes sail keeps the clapper swinging
the tufted titmouse brings lunch to the bird house
babysitting duties shared by either spouse

butterflies swarming over a rainbow of zinnia
identification a good question for trivia
squirrels darting about acting nutty as usual
could God’s design be any more beautiful

birds and bees provide a cacophony of sound
tree tops provide the safest breeding ground
nature’s secrets depend upon balance
only man is in desire of more abundance

economics overshadows the politically correct
a vote is all the ego driven politicians expect
easy peasy the credo of the modern ecclesiastic
his greatest legacy a trillion tons of plastic

the scientist who understand are mostly ignored
from whence we came will never be restored
history will show man to be forever the fool
Mother Nature’s evolution will always rule

And love.

Love above all.”

Poem:  **     ABba/abAB/abbaA    (rondel)

.

who doesn’t love a holey bagel
covered with a schmear of cream cheese
add a drizzle of honey from the bees
an appreciated staple for the breakfast table

the immigrants recipe came from an angel
everything or cinnamon raisin if you please
who doesn’t love a holey bagel
covered with a schmear of cream cheese

for many connoisseurs lox are a staple
a mixed bakers dozen are just a tease
all washed down with a juice you squeeze
finagle a bagel whenever you are able
who doesn’t love a holey bagel
