Sally The Rag Doll
Soft in limb & bland in face, Sally the rag doll knew her place.. Doctor or nurse, teacher for a day - Sally the rag doll knew how to play!
My Life Is Like a River
The surface is calm, smooth and glassy, Beauty reflected therein An occasional ripple, or eddy, Betrays the stillness and calm
The Homeless One
He shivers in the morning dew, Blanket and shirt cast aside Like the dawn shrugging off The dark, lonely night.
The Listening Hills
A garden majestic in grandeur, Hewn from rock and stone, her pillared plinths Like sentinels amidst The granite domes
The Grace of God
Is there anyone who can hold me Without ever letting go Or one who can uplift me When my life has sunk too low
When you Hit the Wall
When you're in the world And you're all backslid There's a wall you won't get through
I'll Dance Alone
Discord on the dance floor We're stepping on toes No rhythm of movement Like deadly foes
Chariots and Horses
Some trust in chariots - others in horses; Some trust in riches others in mansions
The playful fire dances Amber-red, flourescent-green, Flinging impish sparkles At imperious, distant stars,
Safe From Love
Twist the knife Thrust it deep... what ecstasy the agony, what cruel gain
Put Away Your Sadness
Put away your sadness Save it for the day of grief which comes though we bid it not Sadness has no place
Worship from the Floor
In God's Holy Presence we could not stand Before Him we all would fall
When Will the People Believe
We've come through storms Windswept and shaken Survived an earthquake Battered and bruised
Pat on the Back from God
I never had a pat on the back From God I never heard Him say 'Well done'!

Sally The Rag Doll
Soft in limb & bland in face,
Sally the rag doll knew her place..
Doctor or nurse, teacher for a day -
Sally the rag doll knew how to play!
Hair in plaits, or school-girl tails,
Painted eyes & purple nails
Sally was my faithful friend
From playtime's dawn, till childhood 's end...
Sally the rag doll knew her place
Whether in the garden
Or dressed in lace..
Sally the rag doll lived through me -
In adventures imagined
In a childhood free.
