Edwina Reizer Poems
Survival Of The Fittest
When the lion roars and makes himself heard all in the jungle shall listen As he stalks his prey from hunger he feels on his face his eyes do glisten.
Amelia, Amelia where did you go? They’ve searched and searched but still we don’t know. Oh the courage to fly in the air
What Is Family?
A family is love That puts itself above Everything else in this world.
Liar, Liar Pants On Fire
Liar, liar we see the fire coming from your mouth each day. The fire that burns the truth as we struggle along our way,
The frightened ballerina, standing on her toes stood behind the curtain in a dainty pose.
The Death Of A Tree
When I see a tree cut down whose life was not yet done I look upon it with a frown and then look at the sun.
You want to have fear? Listen to what you hear emanating on sound waves approaching your ear.
America, My America
America, my America land of liberty, what can you say has happened to thee? Can you still say with pride just how you feel?
Laugh Out Loud
Have we lost our sense of humor? We must laugh on every day. For without laughter life is dull Like a stage without a play.
Beauty Of Life
I wonder as I look around at all the beauty that I've found. I've found it in the smallest places. I've found it in the smiles on faces.
A Ballad For Helen Keller
How can I know what I can't see? It's never been a part of me. How can I know what I can't hear?
Ode To Dreams
No one can see into my dreams and so they're mine alone. I travel places and meet old friends and some I've never known.
Mother Earth Cries Out
Peace, please come to me. I am the earth, the land and the sea. I'm home to the animals
Those Special Moments
If only we could keep those moments from slippin' away, grab hold of them and cherish them and try to make them stay.
Once Again Poor Souls
Today is just like yesterday.There's nothing different now.
We sing. We dance. We hum a tune, but before the final bow
We recognize the sorrow. We recognize the pain.
And all the passing yesterdays still do remain.
We do not learn from past mistakes. We run from them instead.
They follow us with repeated footsteps, trampling hard like lead.
We can't outrun them though we try and then we wonder why
The rich stay rich. The poor stay poor and in the end both die?
