Wonderful Life

The morning wakes you with the smile of the sun,
The perfect start for a day that has begun,
The birds join in with a chirp and a tune,
To let you know your rise is due soon.

The scent of the air is delicately sweet,
From the blooms that bees are pleased to meet,
The sky is adorned with bright delight,
We are truly blessed with this beautiful sight.

It’s a Wonderful Life for all to adore,
From the countryside to the seashore,
Whether there are brambles, or a seashell,
They’re all fine examples of all that’s well.

It’s a Wonderful Life this breath of air,
This World of Loving and Equal Share,
Human beings at their best,
You can imagine the rest.

The night-time calls with an evening star,
The twinkling locator of where we are,
The hoot of the owl ends the day,
The chickens nestle in their coups of hay.

Another day over in this wondrous Life,
Even glorious in both joy and strife,
Starting the day with a precious smile,
And it’s closure, dreaming for a while.

It’s A Wonderful Life.

Will I ever see you again ?

When I was little I saw you in the Zoo,
You “smiled” to say “how do you do?”,
You were tall, And also small,
Bald, and furry too,
When I was little I saw you in the Zoo.

When I was an adult I saw you in the Safari Park,
You ran free from dawn until dark,
You were striped and spotted too,
I was allowed to photograph you,
Yet your smile was hard to see,
When I was an adult had you forgotten me ?.

Now I am old and going grey,
I’m looking around,and I’m sorry to say -,
Will I ever see you again?,
Did the poachers ever refrain?,
You were all my pets you see,
You meant the World to me.

Will I ever see you again ? Do not let this happen to our wonderful world.
