Happy Is England

Happy is England! I could be content
To see no other verdure than its own;
To feel no other breezes than are blown
Through its tall woods with high romances blent:
Yet do I sometimes feel a languishment
For skies Italian, and an inward groan
To sit upon an Alp as on a throne,
And half forget what world or worldling meant.
Happy is England, sweet her artless daughters;
Enough their simple loveliness for me,
Enough their whitest arms in silence clinging:
Yet do I often warmly burn to see
Beauties of deeper glance, and hear their singing,
And float with them about the summer waters.

Your happiness is my happiness

happyclownsWhenever you’re feeling down
Don’t always come with a frown
Come look like a happy clown

Though of course you can’t hide it
At least try a bit

But there are people around
Where your happiness is found

I Saw A Jolly Hunter

i_saw_a_jolly_hunter_by_oliverbrundle-d7g38n5I saw a jolly hunter
With a jolly gun
Walking in the country
In the jolly sun.

In the jolly meadow
Sat a jolly hare.
Saw the jolly hunter.
Took jolly care.

Hunter jolly eager-
Sight of jolly prey.
Forgot gun pointing
Wrong jolly way.

Jolly hunter jolly head
Over heels gone.
Jolly old safety catch
Not jolly on.

Bang went the jolly gun.
Hunter jolly dead.
Jolly hare got clean away.
Jolly good, I said.

My Droolish Dog

Purebredbreeders.com-Drool-DogMy Droolish Dog
My dog is not hip
Oh, the drool from her lip,
It’s long and slimy, eew the drip!
She isn’t cool
When she lays by the pool,
Just a lug with oh so much drool!

My Foolish Dog

tail wagMy dog my dog
His name is lucky
But his teeth are so big
We call him bucky
His tail is short
And his belly is big
He looks like my cousin
Who wears a wig
Although he is not that smart
He’ll always be in my heart.

Let Every Day Be Christmas

santa_claus_and_christmas_tree_207602Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.

Peace on Earth, good will to men,
kind thoughts and words of cheer,
are things we should use often
and not just once a year.

Remember too the Christ-child, grew up to be a man;
to hide him in a cradle, is not our dear Lord’s plan.
So keep the Christmas spirit, share it with others far and near,
from week to week and month to month, throughout the entire year!

U.S. Design Engineer (1923–2002)

Whisky

whiskyThe answer to all of lifes’ woes is whisky.

Whether you are stressed or feeling frisky.

It makes you warm and clears your nose

And after a few, anything goes!
