My Precious Beloved! By L. Don Oliver

Oh! my precious beloved, Together again we shall _; Where shade covers the grass, Beneath our Old Oak _;

We will lie there together, And gaze up at the _; Build cloud castles in the air, And watch the world go ;

Plucking the petals from a flower, "She loves me, she loves me "; Some will say that is passe, But, to me it still means a ;

I'll recite a tender poem. An you will act a little ; With our aging hands entwined, We will revisit all our ;

We will whisper sweet words of love, And try to hold back the __; Then we will embrace each other, As we have through all the __;

We will not allow our yesterdays, To become but only a ___; For there is much in life to come. So many new things yet to ;

Glory of War! By L. Don Oliver

The cannon roars, A rifle shot; A soldier dies, All for nought;

The bell rings, On Village Square; There's no rejoicing, That's abiding there;

Six gun salute, A trumpet sounds; Another soldier buried, In hallowed grounds;

A mother cries, Her child gone; She returns to, An empty home;

That's the moral, End of story, In any war, There's no glory;

The Ten Morals By L. Don Oliver (Revised)

It is morally right to have, Faith for what you believe; It is morally wrong to worship, What others falsely conceive;

It is morally wrong to assail others, Even the words we speak; It is morally right to rest, On one day of each week;

It is morally right to honor parents, Even if there should be strife; It is morally wrong to purposely, Take another person's life;

It is morally right to be honest, To the one you're committed to; It is morally wrong to take, That which doesn't belong to you;

It is morally wrong to utter untruths, Most often it leads to distress; It is morally wrong to be jealous, Of what others do possess;

I've always lived by the "Golden Moral", Of everything that I perceive; "To always do for others, What I wish them to do for me";

In that the Ten Commandments can't be displayed on government grounds, I guess the following could not be displayed either, although it doesn't have a religious connotation! While the Church vs State groups argue (for profit), the morals of our society are being destroyed.

Knock! Knock! Knock! By L. Don Oliver

There came a knock, upon my door, Too afraid, that I should explore; Could it be for me, to just ignore, The knocking there, upon my door; The knocking there, became so loud, I search within, for a comfort shroud; To hide from, the gathering crowd, The knocking, that was so loud; The knocking continued, into the night, Anxiety flare, to take to flight, Over the hill, beyond the sight, Fleeing there, into the night; Into the storm, through the rain, It was mine, this foolish vain, In complete seclusion, I will remain; When Opportunity returns, to knock again;

Bartering IT Away!! By L. Don Oliver

Give me a rose, I'll show you a pose, That no one else can see; If you give me a rose, Then I will suppose, That it was meant to be; I'll give you a rose, If you show me a pose, That only I can see; If I give you a rose, Then you can suppose, That it was meant to be; Some use it I propose, At each day's close, As a reason to sway; Rose, Rose, rose, That's how it goes, Bartering Freedom away;

The Garden! by L. Don Oliver

She planted a flower garden, In the early spring; When the Eagle soars, And the Robins sing;

Pretty carnations and marigolds, Planted all in a row; She planted red roses, And watched them grow;

Every morning she cultivated them, With her lovely delicate hands; Until one day she succumbed,
From all of life's demands;

Most of the flowers lived, Some we could not save, We picked all the remaining ones, And placed them on her grave;

We planted a vegetable garden, In the early spring; Now that the Eagle isn't allowed to soar, And the Robins are forbidden to sing;

The Banshee's Cry! (The Death of a Nation) By L. Don Oliver

Walking down a darkened street, Within the silence of my mind; Searching for I know not what, That was so very hard to find;

Stumbling alone into the night, I felt something go rushing by; An apparition all dressed in gray, I heard the Banshee's cry;

Screaming all about me, Darting here and to the fro; Swirling around my very being, Relieved as I watched her go;

Her wailing was so haunting, But I did not take time to see; When I turned the final corner, She was waiting there for me;

Father's Day Tribute! By L. Don Oliver

Many of children, go to bed; Nary a pillow, for their head; Making do, with what they've got; Fatherly affection, they have not; Mothers cry, alone each night; Hopes and dreams, far from sight; Two or three jobs, they daily go, What tomorrow brings, they never know; To the single mothers, I wish to say; Thank you all, on this Father's day;
