    Another poem for your relaxation.


    For Your Eyes Only

    To Josephine and her 35 ft statue of Virgin Mary
    at her uphill estate

    On the mountains and valleys
    Here, nature wonder lies with grace
    Overlooking the vast pacific ocean
    It's magnificent God's creation
    Where serenity and divinity reign.

    It's one of wonders of the glove
    A Shangrila in a modern world
    Love, peace and happiness you surely will find
    Among the flowers and foliage so devine.

    Ah heaven, so near yet so far away
    But I hear the angels sing solemnly
    And the blue sky beaming gracefully.

    And there Mother Mary standing tall and stately
    With eyes staring at me.
    My soul touched and eyes misty.
    How magnificent she is, isn't she?

    Poetry brings to the surface our inner most feelings and at times of joy or saddness it fulfills a desire to express ones emotions in words.
    Thanks for sharing this.
    best wishes john

    A friend gave me this one it might appeal to JWL
    "Something of value"
    We met and we married a long time ago
    We worked for long hours when wages were low
    no TV no radio no bath times were hard
    Just a cold water tap and awalk round the yard

    No holidays abroad no carpets on the floors
    We had coal on the fire and we didnt lock doors
    Our children arrived,no pill in them days
    We brought them up without state aid

    They were safe going to play in the park
    And old folk could could go out in the dark
    No valium no drugs no LSD
    We cured most of our ills with a good cup of tea

    No vandals no muggings there was nothing to rob
    We felt we were rich with a couple of bob (pence)
    People were happier in those days
    Kinder and caring in so many ways

    Milkmen and paperboys would whistle and sing
    A night at the cinema was one mad fling
    We all get our share of trouble and strife
    We just have to face it thats the pattern of life

    Now I'm alone I look back through the years
    I dont think of the bad times the trouble and tears
    I remember the Blessings our home and our love
    And that we shared them together I thank God above

    Hi guys, excuse me for my carelessness. On the second stanza above,
    First line:" It's one of wonders of the glove ", the correct word should be 'globe'. I'm sorry. Thanks for understanding. swany
