Christmas Sonnet 2014

How sweet the snow when fresh appears in wint’
for days are short and home is in our heart;
we join the throng of yuletide merriment
and follow fam’ to tables à la carte.

We feast togeth’; for all, the Lord provides.
Kindred spirits at last we reconcile.
Our home is warm, and there we do reside:
with chants, with song, with Spirit we beguile

Dear God, we implore a thankfilled heart.
Your grace has provided all the year long.
For making us your masterpiece of art,
we give to you this gift of grateful song.

Dear fam’, dear friend, dear all and Spirit True,
with love and joy I give this gift to you.

A Birthday Sonnet to Ms. Virginia Thomas

May you, my friend, Ms. Thomas find the way,

and walk with myriad angels abreast.

May God shine down his blessings on this day,

And grant you strength, courage, and steal duress.

 

On this your birthday we will celebrate.

As you gain another year in your life.

We honor you with treats, with love, and cake.

And grant you riches that we found a rife.

 

To quote good words and strike a chord n’your heart,

“This is the day the lord has made” for you;

“Let’s rejoice and be glad” were not apart.

Unhappy thoughts, ill forms, we will eschew.

 

Tis your Birthday and life is in a bliss,

Good God above protects you with his kiss.
