Gone Fishin'
by Delmar Pepper

I've finished life's chores assigned to me,
So put me on a boat headed out to sea.
Please send along my fishing pole

Where every day is a day to fish,
To fill your heart with every wish.
Don't worry, or feel sad for me,
I'm fishin' with the Master of the sea.

Please Mrs Butler
by Allan Ahlberg

Please Mrs Butler
This boy Derek Drew
Keeps copying my work, Miss.
What shall I do?

Do whatever you think.

Through the stormy shades of thy wordly way,
And the billows of clouds that around thee roll

O man ! My man !
Come careering out of the night
Of Pan ! Io Pan .
Io Pan ! Io Pan ! Come over the sea
From Sicily and from Arcady !
Roaming as Bacchus, with fauns and pards
And nymphs and styrs for thy guards,
On a milk-white ass, come over the sea
To me, to me,

by Wilfred Owen


Happy are men who yet before they are killed
Can let their veins run cold.
Whom no compassion fleers
Or makes their feet
Sore on the alleys cobbled with their brothers.
The front line withers,
But they are troops who fade, not flowers
For poets' tearful fooling:

A Better Life
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

on the other shore
the waters are crystal green
unlike these so blue

sun sparkles rubies
and mauve birds sing on the wing
into plum tinged nights

on the other side
dark shadows dance in sunshine

She sells sea shells
By the sea shore
Where the mermaids dance
Behind the green glass door

She shouts she yells
By the sea shore
And the waves, they echo
a resounding roar

A Vibrant Review
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

rich sunset colors
hold memories of the day
scarlets for the rose

purple evokes plums
orange was butterfly noon
lavender calls scents

peach was the fall leaves
yellows for buttercup dawn

Freedom Breeze
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

mountain breeze wafting
masses of colorful blooms
incessant motion

on the lapis sea
the wind's at last in my sails
sunshine caresses

wind's in the orchard
animating still life fruit

Puffy clouds
Blue waves frothing
