The sun descending in the west,
The evening star does shine;
The birds are silent in their nest,
And I must seek for mine.
The moon, like a flower,
In heaven’s high bower,
With silent delight
Sits and smiles on the night.

Farewell, green fields and happy groves,
Where flocks have took delight.
Where lambs have nibbled, silent moves
The feet of angels bright;
Unseen they pour blessing,
And joy without ceasing,
On each bud and blossom,
And each sleeping bosom.

They look in every thoughtless nest,
Where birds are covered warm;
They visit caves of every beast,
To keep them all from harm.
If they see any weeping
That should have been sleeping,
They pour sleep on their head,
And sit down by their bed.

When wolves and tigers howl for prey,
They pitying stand and weep;
Seeking to drive their thirst away,
And keep them from the sheep.
But if they rush dreadful,
The angels, most heedful,
Receive each mild spirit,
New worlds to inherit.

And there the lion’s ruddy eyes
Shall flow with tears of gold,
And pitying the tender cries,
And walking round the fold,
Saying, ‘Wrath, by His meekness,
And, by His health, sickness
Is driven away
From our immortal day.

‘And now beside thee, bleating lamb,
I can lie down and sleep;
Or think on Him who bore thy name,
Graze after thee and weep.
For, washed in life’s river,
My bright mane for ever
Shall shine like the gold
As I guard o’er the fold.’

Moving With Life

I loved the rainbows, I loved the rain

I loved the happiness, I loved the pain

The sun shines bright

And sometimes it gets darker than the night

But through it all I carry on

Foward, onward, moving on.

Time Alone

The earth was still

So was my heart

It was like we were breathing in unison

And as the stars twinkled in the night

I felt peace in my time alone

Feet Over

The grass is blue

The sky is green

The day becomes night 

And night becomes day

It’s how I feel

It’s what I felt

When you loved me

My feet was over my head

The Night Ends

Good night and great mornings

Another day ends

Another one begins

Sleepless Eyes

And I closed my eyes and nodded off to dreamland

But deep inside I’m wide awake

The night stretches to morning

While I pretend to sleep

I Am Goodnight 

I am goodnight and good morning 

I am sunshine and rain

I am calm and storm

I am predictable and an enigma

The paradox
I am night and day

Midnight and mid morning

The paradox

I know you are tired and dread what tomorrow brings

But there will always be such things

Too much noise

You don’t hear your own voice

Drowned by the many choices

Tired of the announce 
Please try to remember to smile

Remain  to be kind

And stay as beautiful outside and in

Rest Well

The night is cold

A good excuse to sleep early anf hide under the blanket

Rest well

Sleep tight

Dream of wonderful things tonight

Goodnight dreamland

I sleep with the night light off

The stars twinkle above my head

And the moon sings lullabies 

Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul
