The Dragonflies'Lair~Thread LIV
The Poets of The Lair | July 1, 2008 | Soaring Feather

Posted on 07/01/2008 3:19:08 PM PDT by Soaring Feather





My Dragonfly And Me


If I could be a Dragon Fly
and wing my way through the sky
I would never be shy
just me and my Dragon Fly!


By moonlight we ride the wind
chase the comets tail for fun
by day we would hide from the sun
our fragile wings would come undone


On darkest nights we would use
fireflies as our guide
we would dip and we would glide
through the heavens open wide
and scatter diamonds in the night sky
my Dragon Fly and me...


And we would wing past our lovers
silent in the night...
to kiss their face in our flight
much to their surprise and delight
my Dragon Fly and me in sight...


Such a view do we share
away up here in the air
of breezes soft through our hair
my Dragon Fly and me a pair...

Come away, O human child!

To the waters and the wild

With a faery, hand in hand,

For the world's more full of weeping than you understand.



W.B.Yeats

I roll in my bed, my pillow on my head,
in Dreamland I wish I could stay,
but what else can I do? So I throw my old shoe
at The Noise That Just Won't Go Away.

The alarm stops humming, and the sunlight is coming
through the window, announcing the day,
the clock has stopped humming, but it just keeps coming,
The Noise That Just Won't Go Away.

My hands keep jerking, my jaw keeps working
as I struggle to earn a day's pay,
then it's off to the pub, where I try to drub
The Noise That Just Won't Go Away.

As I sit at the bar, other soldiers there are,
who were with me in the land far away,
and our fists hold our ale, and we remember the tale
of The Noise That Just Won't Go Away.

Whether daylight so hot, or night when it's not,
and the moon lit the land bright as day,
you just never knew where the mortar shell flew
with The Noise That Just Won't Go Away.

Sometimes you heard, the only warning word,
"Incoming!!" the sirens would bray,
and you rush inside, as you try to hide
from The Noise That Just Won't Go Away.

A tall plume of smoke, and no one spoke
"Hope it missed", you would silently pray,
and it gets kind of hard, with your careful regard
of The Noise That Just Won't Go Away.

Now, my verses are done, but before you run
do one thing this Veterans' Day,
remember those who face fear, so that you'll never hear,
The Noise That Just Won't Go Away.

Oh my, fabulous piece of poetry. Well done, Sarge. The repetition of The Noise That Just Won't Go Away is chilling and poignant.

Goodnight, everyone.


Come faeries, take me out of this dull world,
for I would ride with you upon the wind
and dance upon the mountains like a flame

~How many Churchgoers does it take to change a light bulb?

Charismatic: Only 1 - Hands are already in the air.

Pentecostal : 10 - One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the spirit of darkness.

Presbyterians: None - Lights will go on and off at predestined times.

Roman Catholic: None - Candles only.

Baptists: At least 15. One to change the light bulb, three committees to approve the change, and 11 to decide who brings the potato salad and fried chicken.

Episcopalians: 3 - One to call the electrician, one to mix the drinks and one to talk about how much better the old one was.

Mormons : 5 - One man to change the bulb, and four wives to tell him how to do it.

Unitarians: - We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, you are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your light bulb for the next Sunday service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, 3-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.

Methodists: - Undetermined. Whether your light is bright, dull, or completely out, you are loved. You can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or tulip bulb. Bring a bulb of your choice to the Sunday lighting service and a covered dish to pass.

Nazarene : 6 - One woman to replace the bulb while five men review church lighting policy.

Lutherans: None - Lutherans don't believe in change.

Amish: - What's a light bulb?

Remember, there are three religious truths:
1. Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah.
2. Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian church.
3. Baptists do not recognize each other in the liquor store or at Hooters

Frisbeetarianism

The belief that when you die, your soul goes up on the roof and gets stuck.

Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my shape to keep.

Please no wrinkles.  Please no bags.

And please lift my butt before it sags.

Please no age spots. Please no gray,

And as for my belly, please take it away.

Please keep me healthy, please keep me young,

And thank you Dear Lord for all you've done.
