A Swampyville Spring!

By L. Don Oliver

In my seventy third Spring,

The squirrels are digging up their _____;

The little sparrow is on the wing,

The honeybee and hummingbird about to _____;

The Blue Heron is on it's perch,

Waiting for a tasty meal to swim __;

The flowers are unfolding their blooms,

Where the warbling wrens still ___;

A black racer snake chasing a lizard,

The fish are leaping in the _____;

A frog croaking upon a lily pad,

The hungry bear departs it's ____;

An unconcerned cold blooded Alligator,

Lazily sunning upon a fallen ____;

A large clump of water hyacinths,

floating to where they shouldn't __;

Fishing with an old cane pole,

Watching the cork bobbing _____;

Lifting the line from the water,

No worry that the bait is ____;

Remembering a far away youth,

Searching for a four leaf ______;

Perhaps one day I will find it,

Before this existence is ____;

The leaves are shading green,

The cypress trees are growing ____;

I will enjoy every approaching spring,

Until, for me, there is none at ___;

Freedom's Wake!

By L. Don Oliver

Standing by a grave stone,

History etched upon it's face;

One who sacrificed his all,

Is now lying in disgrace;

He heard the beating of a drum,

The beckoning call of a fife;

Never once thinking of himself,

He went forth to pledge his life;

Into the Valley of the Damned,

No thought to his own affair;

For God, family and country,

He dared to venture there;

Now, he is purposely forgotten,

Lying in a field overgrown with weeds;

No one there to salute his valor.

Too busy with their own selfish needs;

We are in the Progressive's fold,

Where Freedom has become passe;

What we once could say before,

Today, we dare not say;

When Internationalism seals it's place,

And Nationalism is without any call;

We have only ourselves to blame,

For this Republic's eventual fall;
