A Child's Enchantment By Polly Guerin






















Let's escape beyond the forest trees
A secret life, the Lilliputian's,
                                            if you please!

Where fairies build castles and dens
 And write pretend stories by the pen

Their little houses can be seen by day
At nighttime they come out to play

Tiny folk in green leafy clothes
Of moss and floral they pose

To amuse a summer's day at play
We join in the merry romp today

There we enact fantastic tales
And slay dragons it never fails

Imaginary monsters an sing songs
Tripping through the velvet faun

In this enraptured place I belong
I count the days, that I be gone

A thunderous storm burst forth
All the tiny dwellings were lost

Yet, I remember enchanted time
That only fairy tales can remind

Those wondrous days do not last
We grow up, my dear, far too fast!

ADIEU Dear Life By Polly Guerin















No earthly grave for me
in dark twilight years, I be

Alone in the cold damp ground
Missing nature's joyous sound

I do not expect to wither there
They'll be no one to even care

And set a flower by my stone
For I be here quite all alone

No, No no wooden coffin box
Plunked down with forever locks

I prefer to return to humble dust
Take my ashes but do not rush

Go gently to some quiet glade or glen
Somewhere, where I have never been

An spread my ashes among songbirds
Singing love song I have never heard

And let the wind take me faraway, far
Where field flowers bloom like a star

And here I rest my weary tired head
Nourishing the nature's earth instead

The silent earth beneath my flight
Into the heavens I might alight.

GLOBAL WARMING By Polly Guerin














Spring arrived early this year
Why February?it was not clear

Early blooming red-maples burst
Bloomed buds died at first

A snowstorm came the other day
Migrating birds lost their way

Their food supply lay frozen
Nature caused commotion

Flowers confused had bloomed
Were frozen in their gloom

Daffodils nodded to their icy life
Their numbered days  a sacrifice

Chipmunks stayed underground
Nary a nut could be found

The trees dried up their sap
They shuttered and moaned

Their leaves were iced and cold
No one had known or foretold

A lone coyote gave a mournful cry
Alas, ti's sad to have to say

Shed a tear for the passing of joy
Never to enchant girl or boy

The beautiful spring of yesteryear
Is gone forever, my dear

More snow predicted is on the doom
Must lovely Spring leave us so soon?

SEA DITTY and DAYDREAMER By Polly Guerin












SEA DITTY (C)

The relentless pounding of the sea
Takes us into its lure where we see

Its salty texture bites our skin
And draws us further, further in

Till floating on a seaweed bed
We rest our weary troubled head

With these few moments there is release
Where we find infinite joy and peace

DAYDREAMER ©

I will go down to the grey brooding rocks
And sit there amongst the seabird flocks

And dream a dream, or so it seems
I will stay there near the crashing sea

That clears the path to joyful song
It's in the sea lullaby where I belong

It tells me stories of a foreign land
For it has traveled from sand to sand

And lapped upon the shore of each place
With frosted crest of the waves'n grace

What strange and foreign ports of call
I surrender to its relentless squall

And find solace in its raucous song
The mesmerizing sea is where I belong.

TENDER HEARTED (c) Valentines 2017: By Polly Guerin

                                                            

Let's be kinder and more tender hearted
Even before Valentine's day has started

Despite perceived affection or love lost
Sweetness melts disappointed thoughts

Forget petty grievances and alight
Dispel disenchantment and reunite

Love is the golden thread in the blanket of life
Weave cautiously with warmth, tender hindsight

Look to the world through the eyes of love
Empathy endures forever like a cooing dove

Surround yourself with new found kindness
A compassionate heart dispels blindness

Let there be sweetness in your vocal discourse
Be tactful, it's time to change with no remorse

Reject the platitudes of life, instead renew
With humble gratitude be faithful, be YOU

A steadfast follower, love forever lasts
With pleasant memories from the past

Love conquers all, diminishes discontent
A kinder, a gentler seeker is the intent

Renewed, infused with a tender heart
Let us embrace at last, before we part

NEW YEAR'S 2017 By Polly Guerin







Greet the New Year full of promise and hope
Though challenges may surely come to cope

Conjure up a new attitude, a new passion
A change of heart, give love, do not ration

Grasp inspiration with child-like wonder
And visualize ideas to create and ponder

Focus on your heart's desires as fulfilled
Infuse thoughts with color and be thrilled

Keep anticipation upbeat and sublime
See good be fuifilled time after time

Bringing success, healing and the very best
Tally up the score, you're richer than the rest

A grateful spirit is on an upscale course
Forget past disappoint and perceived loss

Move forward purposely with new goals
As the New Year's promises unfold

Take enough time with wisdom and strength
Move forward on the extra mile, extra length

List all the new things you plan to finally do
With a new focus, driven by passion renew

Your goals and set them free to explore
A new beginning you've never seen before.


Happy New Year 2017!!!
