Apple

What people said and people did are things you are told as a kid.

Including kid means a young goat, I don’t want to start on the wrong note.

Be sure to button up your coat.

They care for you, they correct you, without them what would you do?

In later life you’re on your own, but never really quite alone.

What they said then and you do now stands to you anyhow.

Ripen apple on the bough.

Your Face

I saw you once with worry on your face every other time you were filled with grace.

I saw you walking in the Sun you smiled and so did I.

I said hello I did not say goodbye.

We went our separate ways I hope we meet on other days.

I have not yet sold you my book, I hope you read and look.

A ray of sunshine in this life of mine.

A glass of wine.

Who knows maybe some happy day you and I will find our way.

Until then I remember your face.

Charm and grace.

Girl From My Past

You can knock at the door but I can’t open, girl from my past.

I remember you at last.

Yes, we had good times then you married some other guy.

Not I.

You were like a broody hen.

I made a mistake then.

Maybe I was over eager, an eager beaver.

A true believer.

My inner caveman came to the fore.

I can’t always be polite, what a bore.

It was not meant to be for you and me.

The rest is history.

Looking back parts were very good but not the whole.

Stain on my immortal soul.

It is best that the past be laid to rest.

I did not pass the test.

I hope you had a happy life.

Someone else’s wife.

That’s life.

I represent to you a false start.

You have a piece of my heart.

You are part of my life and I of yours.

Your memory endures.

It would be very strange if we met again.

Would I get it right then?

Hello anyway and goodbye.

Here’s to the sweet by and by.

You and I.

Feeling

Art is all from feeling, feeling matters most.

Do you say holy spirit or do you say holy ghost?

What is the spirit of all things and everything and all?

Is it either very large or very, very small?

Is your spirit really you, is that all there is to say?

I will leave the question why for another day.

Do you feel the spirit of a thing, person, place?

Does great scenery inspire a smile upon your face?

Happiness and sadness, remembrance of times past.

Tomorrow is another day, the future comes at last.

Above all feeling, feeling is my king.

When you have love and happiness do you want anything?

Dead And Gone

But they live on.

I don’t know why we have to die.

In a way we never do.

I hope me too. And you.
