Never to Ever! by L. Don Oliver

I've never seen the antelope play, Or been where the eagles ; Felt the warmth of a campfire, Or heard the lonely wolf _;

I've never seen a beautiful rainbow, Or heard a church bell _; Never in the darkness of night, Heard a sweet songbird _;

I've never felt wind upon my face, Or a gentle rain falling _; Never walked upon fresh fallen snow, When it blanketed the ___;

I've never seen a green forest, Or heard a lovely __; Never paused for a moment, To smell the scented _;

I've never seen a rambling brook, Or heard the children at _; Never walked along the beach shore, On a bright sun shining ;

I've never seen a mountain high, Or strolled the lush valley ; Never smelled a cultivated field, Or watched the flowers _;

I've never seen a deep blue sky, Or walked in the morning _; None of these things have I done, For me (the unborn) they do not __;

The Flower 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 fresh ones, And placed them on her grave;

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

Leap of Faith! By L. Don Oliver

Where oh! where, is the mind; Life oh! life, can unwind;

Down, down, into the unshown; Reason why, never known;

Hearing, the Grim Reaper's cry; Is it just the wind, rushing by;

Into a deep abyss, where I fall; Hoping Heaven, will hear my call;

Flowering wings, about to sail; Praying that, providence will prevail;

New life, billowing aloud; Meandering along, like a cloud;

Clear eyes, deep blue skies; Up where, the eagle flies;

Assured that life, is at an ease; Floating gently, in the breeze;

All fear gone, faith by my side; Upon Earth's Green, I'll soon abide;

Drifting With the Breeze! By L. Don Oliver

Upon the breeze, the changing leaves, Are carried hither and fro; Never to last, their final cast; In time they will eventually know;

They are tossed about, up and down, They slowly drift and fade away; Then turning from rust, back into dust, It's the deceivers they must obey;

There if you please, the falling leaves, They are much a lot like us; We're thrown about, with mistrust and doubt, And things we dare not discuss;

This should not be, for us to see, When there is always a better way; A solid rock, will absorb the shock, No matter what game they play;
