Saturdays poem, as Autumn is upon us….
The colours of the autumn leaves
Beautiful in their shades
as they gently fall and carpet the grass
They have memories of the summer
when it shone on their foliage
and everything was bright and warm
Now they go bright with fall beautiful tones
before they crumple and die
in the earth
They bed deep and form the new earth
to grace the new saplings shoots seeds and all
and begin again in Spring
to grow tall
We are all but leaves that thrive and grow and reach to the sun
and when all is done
we will be taken to the earth
to be reborn again
for something new in the World
The day is done
The night is here
Time has gone
I have a tear
Many years of happiness
I have the memories
It has all been good
But now the darkness
Has come over
There is no choice
How strong the voice
Perhaps the sun will shine again
A streak of light can just be seen
To bring back the happiness
That I once held in my heart
Hello everyone, this is Saturdays poem, as you know i am very grateful to have Polly my Guide Dog, though each day it is often difficult to go anywhere without any attention, which whilst it is lovely, though, sometimes, just sometimes it would be nice to be a little bit annonomous, as was once when i could see and did not need a Guide Dog!
Polly is my fold up Guide Dog!
Polly is my fold up Guide Dog
i take her everywhere with me
she fits in nicely wherever i sit
and doesnt take up much room, not a bit
under the table in a corner small
she is no trouble to me at all!
The other day
we went for a lovely Afternoon tea
My faithful friend
And she doesn’t really drive me round the bend!
As so much love to her people send!
She gets so much attention
As lovely so is she
I just want a cuppa tea!
And not deal with all the fuss that’s abound
She really is such a social hound!
But a sausage she was given
She thought that that was heaven!
As we sipped upon our tea
A lovely scone and jam for me
Cakes iced and sandwiches small
It was the most lovely afternoon of all!
With friends from Chatt Inn
All merry laughing and having fun
At the lovely Attic Cafe
Where beautiful staff
Made us so welcome!
But Guide Dogs are very special you understand
so our life without vision is not so bland
to us blindies they bring much luck
Even though they still roll in muck!
On the grass and sand
licking every sticky hand
And pinching biscuits
When your not looking
And all the crumbs
Whilst you are cooking
And bark at cats
And sniff their way
And really enjoy their doggy day!
The Guide Dog discipline is installed
In them from a puppy small
Which makes them well behaved
And no trouble to us at all!
when she is not being a “real” dog
a well trained Guide, so you are all agog!
but she loves having fun with you and also me!
and is a true treasure you have to agree
Now that it is difficult for me to see far
I wouldn’t be without my little star
She is a super duper Guide Doggy that is it
And no other profession for her would fit!
so three cheers for Polly doodle guide dog girl today!
is what i want you all to say!
This day is newAnd here I am
I would never have believed
This would be the score
For me what is life’s law
And that I would
End my days like this
Without that kiss
That tapers me
Who I should really be
Loved and cared for
In your arms
With all your charms
That I should see
And not go blind
With days and happiness
I should find
With you in my heart
Well it’s did start
But reality bears no fame
In this life it’s like a game
Playing with my delicate heart
And meet me only in media methods
So how can that be
That you love me
When my hand you don’t hold
And not take a chance and be bold
To be with me
There is so much media love
the wind blows in the westit will put me to the test
i see it
cant believe it
time passes so fast
another shaddow has been cast
and what am i to do
time holds no mercy
in this world
it ticks by and that is it
please let me be free
what will be will be
i do not understand what it is to do
will i every be through
let me have the peace
and be free
and let all see
that i will be here with you
