In The Sweet Along My Way! By L. Don Oliver
In the sweet along my way, Reliving memories of the before; In the once, long, long ago, Who could wish for anything more;
Fishing upon the bank, Of a lazy flowing stream; No thoughts of tomorrow, Relaxing within my dream;
An old cracked cane pole, Resting gently upon my knee; Thoughts of the now, Lost in my reverie;
The ripple upon the stream. Created by a gentle blowing breeze; Sun dancing upon the water, The moment was mine to seize;
Sounds of a singing wren, Bass splashing with delight; A solitary soaring eagle, Upon it's effortless flight;
A greenish blue crab, Drifting along with the tide; A turtle upon a fallen tree, It's there that it will abide;
A majestic blue Heron, Wading in the shallows slow; Right there where all, The smaller fish will flow;
A family of Mallards, Gracefully paddling by; Soon they will join others, Upon their Northern fly;
A catfish beneath the water, Swimming swiftly upon it's way; Saying to no one in particular, "You'll not catch me today";
Time passes, oh! so quickly, In life it will never wait; Guess its time to go, For, I forgot the bait;
The descending Sun is yawning, The Moon soon will be high; Time to gather up my gear, And tell all my friends goodbye;
Many love ones are in heaven, There, where the Angels sing; While I'm still upon my journey, I will cherish all that life will bring;
