Scotland Land Of My Birth
by Susanna Burton Goehler Ca

Scotland with your banks and braes mountains valleys moors and rivers
The greenest grass you have ever seen the rainiest of weather
You can hear the bagpipes playing and see the swirl of kilts
Each clan has a history of their own Clan Crest and Tartan Kilt
The Highland Fling and Sword Dance still danced by the Scots today
Red cheeked and bright eyed lassies sincerely dedicated to their heritage
Velvet jackets kilts and crests medals hanging on their vests
Won for the special quality of dancing that they display
My Father John Ross Campbell has left his Clan to me
Blue Plaid Tartan Kilt and Crest I treasure in my memory

Steps
by Frank O'Hara

How funny you are today New York
like Ginger Rogers in Swingtime
and St. Bridget's steeple leaning a little to the left

here I have just jumped out of a bed full of V-days
(I got tired of D-days) and blue you there still
accepts me foolish and free
all I want is a room up there
and you in it
and even the traffic halt so thick is a way

Thank you God, for this beautiful day

Please help me to get through it.

And I know each time you do it.

Silver heart of Jesus,

Wishes, For Alix
by James Emanuel

Always searching, may you find;
if you run-down,
may you wind;
every year
may you grow
reaping only
what you sow
sowing only in the seed
what will ripen into need
what will sweeten to the touch

What Weather
by Angela Fletcher

The leaves are blowing away
Up, up, and away they go.
Swish, swoosh, they go.
Like a dancing ballerina
Up, up and away they go
Way up , in the sky.

The trees standing there,
Their branches all bare.
The wind whistling throughout empty branches,

War
by Hannah Woerner

Those who came before know it is not a battle but a war that must be fought and won once again by those much younger than them

And those who love god rage because the one they praise is not Holy, but depraved
How could such devastation take place if this god of love really does rein

United we should stand against the evil hand of oppression
The halt that has been put on progression
The stifling darkness of depression

We’re caught in a war of draining night,

Just me
by Carl Sinderby

Just me who i am with in this body I own,
Forever changing I understand I have grown,
Many challenges I have faced,
All the dreams I have chased,

Just me in the room i call home,
Thinking of how to set the tone,
Will it be a graceful day i have today,
Or do I falter to pretend I'm ok,
Just me I count on so many times,

Pause and Cherish
by Chandra Pathakoti

How long will you Run? How long will you hold steam
in the sun?
When will you be done? Is life a race to be Won?
Dashed into multitude of races and timeless chases
Huffing and puffing, landing in empty spaces
Chasing mysterious mirages and feeling restless
In this gold rush, death will blush, leaving ya
breathless
The time will perish and days will pass
All the treasure’s gone, once ya buried under grass

A Golden Day
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

The subtle beauty of this day
Hangs o'er me like a fairy spell,
And care and grief have flown away,
And every breeze sings, "all is well."
I ask, "Holds earth or sin, or woe?"
My heart replies, "I do not know."

Nay! all we know, or feel, my heart,
Today is joy undimmed, complete;
In tears or pain we have no part;
