Blue






I sit under Arizona blue sky
Desert winds sing and wild birds fly
Ground squirrel scurrying about gathering food
Bringing to me a peaceful mood


Gazing out at a shimmering blue lake
Nothing plastic and nothing fake
Mother quail guiding babies wee and soft
Papa quail guards on fence aloft


Mockingbird trilling his multi-note song
I can't think of a world gone wrong
Finches singing as they perch in the tree
Much to enjoy so much to see


Lizards lazing upon a sun warmed stone
It isn't long that time has flown
I can't feel worried nor can I be blue
Problems of life here are quite few


I sit under Arizona blue sky
Desert winds sing and wild birds fly
Ground squirrel scurrying about gathering food
Bringing to me a peaceful mood

When Day Is Done






In the evening when day is done
And stars come out to shine
The moon replaced day time sun
In the evening when day is done
Finished is all work and fun
Lazing on porch and feeling fine
In the evening when day is done
And stars come out to shine

When I Look At You






When I look at you what do I see
A lovely person looking back at me
I see kindness in the way you smile
As you play with grandchildren awhile


When I look at you what do I see
A person with spirit so free
Someone who gives a lot of their self
Instead of sitting dormant on a shelf


I see a long life which was lived full
After a time of a long row to hoe
When I look at you what do I see
A person who raised a loved family


So when you ask who is it that's there
It's plain to see a person who does care
And in the mirror when you should peek
Be happy with the person that you seek

Aroma






He put on a pot of beans
You know the kinds that I means
You can guess what happened then
Feeding beans to all them men


The odor was oh so strong
I knew that something was wrong
When I walked inside the door
The smell was worse than before


Them men eating all the beans
You know just what I does means
The gaseous aroma stank
Out the door I did slank


Windows opened very wide
While I waited long outside
No more beans for all them men
No no not ever again

Lull






Life would be so very dull
If I stayed into a lull
We need some bumps in the road
And sometimes a heavy load


If life stayed into a lull
Then where would we learn to haul
I need some excitement here
It makes lulls seem much more dear


Sometimes when hectic life hits
It's nice to have a lull a bit
Sit and watch the lake flow by
Or the blue paint up the sky


Watching for the sand to warm
After busy life does storm
But best when lull does appear
Is to have a loved one near

Dag Gum It






Dag gum it life is tough sometimes
It's either too cold or too hot
Foods that taste good are bad for you
The ones that taste bad are not


If your house is clean no one comes near
But just wait till it's a big mess
And you forget to comb your hair
A knock on the door you have guests


Drive a junk heap to the grocer's
Not a scratch will appear
Oh wow! You bought brand new car
It gets rammed it's shiny rear


Dag gum it life is tough sometimes
That's when you do something dumb
All decked out in your Sunday best
You sit in a big wad of gum


It's Murphy's law for us my friend
Now who could old Murphy be
To enact such a lousy law
Murphy should be hung from a tree
