John Leroy Maxwell Poems
I Cried Today
I cried today, as I touched your face, in memory, not wanting to waken you in your slumber I eased out of bed, early, to brew your favorite coffee, knowing the aroma would awaken you
The Wall Of Tolerance
This is not a perfect world, we see things everyday That makes us take a second look, or makes us turn away The heart of man has turned to stone, and compassion is not found We've taken love and friendship and beat them to the ground
Happiness Is Helping Others
Is anybody happier, because you passed this way Does anyone remember that you spoke to them today The day is almost over, and it's toiling time is through Is there anyone to utter now, a kindly word to you
Walking 'round my yard, I just wanted to see, if any little friends wanted company.. I saw Mrs. Robin sitting in a tree, guarding her nest, and her children three..
A civil war on North Church Road, no wealth to gain, no wealth bestowed.. For things possess and can not get.. To pass on by but not forget.. Brother against brother, father against son.. No target hit, no battle won.. Know not the reason this be so..
Chanteuse Of Love
Your subtle and gorgeous sounds, and touching create exciting moments.. Warm thoughts of your Body and Soul produce a sense of swing and harmony..
Ballet Of The Rain
It keeps on raining all around, bouncing lightly off the ground.. Just like the Ballet, on tip toe shoe, turning swirling, all nignt thru.. Angelic Angels brightly attired, to be Loved, and be admired.. A touch of Heaven, a caress divine, Angelic Music, soft and fine..
Ready for sleep, and lying in my bed.. I heard this music, spinning 'round in my head.. I wasn't dreaming, I knew it was there.. And it was coming from my Frigidaire.. As I opened up the door, to my surprise, the Pork Chops
The Pig And I
How well do I remember, it was just this past December, I was walking down the street in manly pride When my heart began to flutter, and I fell into the gutter, and a pig came up and lay down by my side
She walked erect, and carefully chose, the stoney path, beneath her toes Head held high, flaming red hair, loose flowing gown, and pretentious stare
The cattle graze in pasture still The plowmans horse, the soil to till And soon the fields the farmer sow His keep to earn, the crops he grow
The Laws are silent, in the midst of Arms If you wish Peace, prepare for War At any cost, tears attend trials, thru the path of suffering
Smile Day-Pass It On
Smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too I passed around the corner, and someone saw my grin When he smiled I realized, I'd passed it on to him
A Peaceful Place
A mountain brook, a mountain stream Rippling waters weave me a dream I try to grasp that special note The stoic rocks, the ripples poke
The City Eternal
Eternal shall this land be free, from strife, and war to ever be..
A land where each one's hand shall grasp, the Moslem,
Christian, Jew hold fast.. United Nations hold real tight,
to see and do, for all thats right.. Eternal City, shall we say,
for all to see a brighter day.. In Middle East we ask for peace,
and in this way shall bring release.. Too many delve in hate
and shake their fist, this is the way we can't exist..
Not shake the fist; should extend the hand, to make all peopl
