Gaff


Oh what a wonderfull moses staff
that works wonders deleting laugh
and traps all man that from life way stray
leaving his sumppuous body to rot and throw away
now listen to my noisy wisper
the cause of my brave horse's wimper
listen to the secret of life
the source and end of husband and wife

thn words you read now is the earths wicket
hear the whistling
words of the widgeon and cricket
it says that for life only one can fortell
he is the one to you, i tell
that same is he, the secret of life
tis he that bid us live without strife

its him that holds the knife and life
he is the father without wife
now here is the secret
that life is living and death is retreat
and both war and retreat, he controls
just as he made plants and woad
he is the truth, life and road
God.., fear him

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
