Greed! by L. Don Oliver

The labyrinth of my Life, That has ensued thus this ___; Gives no reasons for excuse, When I stand before the bar;

Ghostly eerie creatures dancing, Echos from a pretentious _; Gives rise to the truth, Of the shadows that I've _;

The candle of my being, Is flickering in its _; There will come that day, When it will cease to _;

If ever my never comes, Inter history beneath the ; Shed no tears for yesterday, Render my final fate unto ;

Previous Poem.

Stella Louise! by L. Don Oliver

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

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

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

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

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

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

I've never seen a deep blue sky, Or walked in the morning mist; None of these things have I done, For me they would never exist;
