Do not say yes when you mean to say no

Do not say yes when you mean to say no
Why would you carry the luggage of lies?
Sing; sing a sincere song wherever you go.

Many murderers toil to shun their shadow
Their deeds are not hidden, like the star in 
the skies
Do not say yes when you mean to say no.

Live to love; become someone’s pillar and 
pillow
Save a soul from the night’s fiery flies,
Sing; sing a sincere song wherever you go.

The wicked forcefully reap where they did 
not sow,
The lord will arise and dry your dripping 
eyes,
Do not say yes, when you mean to say no.

So many are wallowing in want and woe,
They were ravaged by rulers, who were 
secret spies,
Sing; sing a sincere song wherever you go.

Even if the stormy seas make you sick and 
slow
All you need do is to shake off the chains 
and arise;
Do not say yes when you mean too say no,
Sing; sing a sincere song wherever you go.

A Kiss Goodnight


Oh, how the wind's song gives a kiss goodnight!
Gentle breezes in my face leave me weak.
Whistling words of love hold me 'til dawn's light...

Summer winds soften starry skies once bright.
I climb rustling trees. Love, windblown, I seek.
Oh, how the wind's song gives a kiss goodnight!

Love's worth the battle. Through gusts, I shall fight!
Tho' whispering winds bring love soft and meek.
Whistling, words of love hold me 'til dawn's light...

Come forth again! The silence is my plight.
In the wind's absence, tomorrow seems bleak.
Oh, how the wind's song gives a kiss goodnight! 

Gentle breezes raise romance to new height.
The warm southwinds soothe. Enamoured, I speak.
Whistling words of love, hold me 'til dawn's light...

Stay, my dear friend, you lift me like a kite.
Carry my soul higher than mountain peaks.
Oh, how the wind's song gives a kiss goodnight...
Whistling words of love, hold me 'til dawn's light!

Contagious Singing

Singing songs that fill the air.
Contagious is the song they sing.
The canaries are joyful, without a care.

Their melodies are beyond compare.
They make a weary heart take wing,
singing songs that fill the air.

Happy they, no burden to bare,
when their rich songs they shall sing.
The canaries are joyful, without a care.

Sad thoughts you cannot share
when listening to the song they bring,
singing songs that fill the air.

Their lilting voices in the air
are welcoming the coming Spring.
The canaries are joyful, without a care.

I shall hum while they sing with flair
and all around us music will ring.
Singing songs that fill the air,
the canaries are joyful, without a care.

A Beautiful Song Takes Face

A beautiful song he heard in the air
Music in the distance approaching near
He succumbed to the music without  care

He didn’t question it no he wouldn’t dare
It sounded as though soon it would be here
A beautiful song he heard in the air

So nice was it that it gave him a scare
 Getting closer and closer waiting in fear
He succumbed to the music without a care

The score was very beautiful to be fair
But nothing compared to what did appear
A beautiful song he heard in the air

The beauty  he witnessed  now could ensnare
To him it became oh so very clear
He succumbed to the music without care

He could spend hours in a single stare
Probably more than hours, maybe a year
A beautiful song he heard in the air
He succumbed to the music without care

Marshland Dreams

In the night the marsh cricket cries,
Ringing through the starless still
A song of aurora skies.

A pale gray moon, listening, sighs,
No wind rippling the watermill
In the night the marsh cricket cries.

Shearing the dark a lost bird flies,
The melody shivers in the chill
A song of aurora skies. 

Hours before forgotten sunrise,
Ants dare venture from their hill
In the night the marsh cricket cries.

Beneath the marsh water millions of eyes,
Shameless creatures drink in their fill
A song of aurora skies.

There are no fears, there are no lies
They cannot understand this thrill
In the night the marsh cricket cries
A song of aurora skies.
