I Heard the Robin Sing! by L. Don Oliver
When I was the innocent one, One morning in early ___; No thought of true reason, I heard the Robin _;
He sang his sweet song of life, Of hope, faith, and _; He sang of his everlasting wish, For a world in perfect _;
He sang his precious sweet song, For conflict to never __; Then came the makers of hate, And tore all his dreams __;
There alone upon his perch, While others were at __; In the darkness of night, I heard the Robin _;
Holding On! By L. Don Oliver
I came upon a new mown field, And heard the black birds sigh; Tiring of their fruitless search, Away they began to fly;
I walked thru a valley of flowers, Who's buds refused to bloom; All wilting in the same direction, Waiting for their coming doom;
I strolled the desert's heat, And felt the scorching pain; Then came the darkened clouds, With their life refreshing rain;
Holding on to that I believe, Destiny is not mine to propose; Concerned not about that to come, After pausing to smell the rose;
