The Green Dragon


Standing Out And Looking
I Hold You Close Tonight
Wondering And Thinking
Reality’s Out Of Sight
If And When I See You
I Won’t Know What To Say
Seeing You Is Better
I’ll Remember You That Way
Saying Words To Please Me
You Tear My Heart Apart
Feelings, Now They’re Easy
Especially From The Heart
Life Is Filled With Choices
We See These Every Day
I Hear The Same Old Voices
But Don’t Know What To Say
Take Them All Together
They Wind Up Best This Way
Take Them All Forever
Immortality’s Here To Stay
Waiting For The Winter
To One Day Go Away

You Appreciate The Summer
Funny, Isn’t It I Say
Let’s Drink The Wine Together
It’s Ours And Ours To Drink
And Soon The Cool Sweet Water
The Best Drink, Don’t You Think
Add To This A Lemon, A Little Absinthe To
It’s Pale Yet So Refreshing
Ooh, Here Comes A Green Dragon
I Think He’ll Find It Quenching
Drink It All Night Long
We’ll Drink Them One And All
Then Maybe Sing A Song
Retire, Then Rest, Then Crawl
Maybe Grow Some Fruit
And Tend To The Placid Sheep
Trip Over The Green Wormwood Root
So We Can One Day Sleep
People, Places, Memories
Experiences Quite Unique
Remember Them As Always
For One Day We Will Meet…

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
