The Ninth Station

sad, tired
aching, praying, forced
Jesus, cross, guards, bystanders
falling, mocked, whipped
sad, holy
Jesus Falls The Third Time

Spring is Here

The sun is shining, the birds are singing
Spring must be here
Flowers are blooming, kids are playing
Spring must be here
The snow is melting, animals are leaping
Spring must be here
Spring must be here

The Eyes of Hope

Feel the crisp clear night…
All the moonlight dancing on the ice crystals
Formed on the evergreen branches…

There in the still night hides a stray…
In her eyes read the stories of misunderstanding,
Hope for survival, hope for a home, and peace
With her human counterparts.

The wilderness is not her home, for she is…
The eyes of hope.

Who feels jubilant, joyful, and proud about his heritage
Who thinks of upbeat music, horses, and shamrocks when he thinks of Ireland
Who loves to eat Irish foods such as bacon, potatoes, and mutton
Whose favorite Irish family tradition is hanging a crucifix in every room of the house

Trees blow their leaves away,
Over the river and onto another tree.
Trees can talk; Yes, I know it.
When the winds blow, they whisper.
They sing in harmony.
They sing to the world.

Surrender to the sunset,
the night will have to wait.
Surrender to the sunset,
the sun like golden gates.
Kiss the hills goodbye,
cry the colors in the sky.
Surrender to the sunset,
the night will have to wait
because the sun is going to stay.

Sweet sound of birds
Peeping as they fly.
Rabbits hopping
In the meadow.
Nibbling on
Green grass.

The Light Others Give to Me

Others give us light in several special ways. You can receive light from anybody, teachers, parents, priests, and friends.
Here are some people who give me light.
My mom and dad and family give me light of love and comfort. Family is a relaxing light.
Friends also give me light, lights of togetherness and friendship. It is a fun light to experience.
Yet others still give me light. Teachers, mentors and instructors. Those who instruct you, inspire you, and teach you. I get lights of learning and inspiration from them.
Now the last most important group of lights are priests, popes, bishops. The light they give is so radiant and holy and blessed and powerful I don’t know how to describe it. It is the best of all lights. Now that you know about the lights of all, go and give some to others and pass it along.

Good-bye Winter

Good-bye, winter, see you soon,
But now is the time for ducks and loons.
Good-bye, snow, I say farewell,
Now we get get water from our well.
I love spring, I love flowers,
I say “hello” to April showers!
