AND THREE MORE POEMS....................


BACK THEN

by Gene Minix

School was out for the summer
And what grand and exciting days.
We chased butterflies across the meadows.
We ran and we played.

We climbed the old oak tree.
We lay on a bed of soft green grass.
And gazing up into the sky,
We watched soft clouds float past.

We rode bicycles down the lane.
The sun shown so bright.
We collected stray dogs
And counted the stars at night.

We didn't have a care
In those days of long ago.
We marched to a different drum,
The "real world" we didn't know.

We didn't worry about tomorrow.
It was our day in the sun.
It seemed the day moved slow
And we dreamed of being twenty-one.

The summer days they were
Long and they were slow to pass.
Now they move so very fast.
They move so very fast.

BABIES

by Gene Minix

Babies make the world
Such a far better place.
With their chubby little hands
And that smile on their face.

They talk in their own language
And though you don't understand
You talk back just like them
As you hold their little hand.

You sit for hours watching them play
And, O, the joy runs free.
Babies are a gift from heaven
God has given you and me.

Even if there were no fire in hell
I still wouldn't want to go.
For it would be hell without babies
And there's no babies in hell I know.

GOD'S FINGERPRINTS

by Gene Minix

The fingerprints of God are everywhere.
Just look around and you will see.
In the beauty of a rose, in the giant oak tree.
But most of all, in you and me.

You can see them in the clouds above
And in the moon and stars that shine through.
IN the majestic mountains reaching tall
And in the oceans wide and blue.

In meadows of green, in the song of the lark.
In an eagle flying high above the trees.
The fingerprints of God are everywhere
But most of all, in you and me.

"And God said, Let us make man in our image,
after our likeness: and let them have dominion over
the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over
the cattle, and over all the earth and over every creeping thing
that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
-- Genesis 1:26,27
