UP TO SPEED!

UP TO SPEED!

When I was growing up,

In Junior High School,

The melody was played for us–

The was the Choral rule.

Then we tried a modern song

A piece of soft rock…

It didn’t have a melody,

Our cushy life had stopped!

Our Director eased us into

Choral modernity…

With greater appreciation

For the modern music scene.

HAWKEYE, JUST BARELY.

HAWKEYE, JUST BARELY.

 

A leaf fell down through the trees,

Under the riverbank he sees…

In a moment or two

Water current brings it through,

Riding the water, not breeze.

Picnics by riversides are restful,

And value of eyesight is testable…

Even though we’ve no need

To stay up to speed,

Having down time is good for the successful.

Watching leaves fall through trees is no crime,

As long as we get back on time…

We don’t need to capture fish

To enjoy a wholesome dish,

But to appreciate God’s Creation is prime.
