Welcome Home

I know that Spring has come
when roused from my bed
by their trumpeting overhead.
I welcome them home
with a song in my heart,
but know too, that death of the greening
soon come in time
when they depart.
Welcome Home My Friends.

Thank You, Mr. Silverstein

Just How brillant can one man be?

Thank you, Mr. Silverstein.
I offer a few selections of his many gems, here, from:

Falling Up
poems and drawings
by Shel Silverstein

- copyright 1996, by Shel Silverstein.

There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
"I feel that this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong."
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
What's right for you-just listen to
The voice that speaks inside.



All the Woulda-Coulda-Shouldas
Layin' in the sun,
Talkin' 'bout the things
They woulda-coulda-shoulda done . . .
But those Woulda-Coulda-Shouldas
All ran away and hid
From one little did.



George got stung by a bee and said,
"I wouldn't have got stung if I'd stayed in bed."
Fred got stung and we heard him roar,
"What am I being punished for?"
Lew got stung and we heard him say,
"I learned somethin' about bees today."

( note: this poem has an illustration to go with it that must be seen )

"The desination is only one - oneness.
So do not criticize anyone.
Never injure the feelings of your friends
or your spiritual companions.
Let them have their own beliefs.
Show respect - that is your responsibility to mankind."

Om Shanti Shanti Shanti
May there be peace everywhere

Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu
May all beings be happy
