Few Things Are As Beautiful

Upon this planet
Few things are as beautiful;
As a moss garden

There are few things in life

I

There are few things in life
that will equate,
the freedom
that you get on a motorbike.

II

Speed and power is something
that can easily grab you
and maybe you can fetch the same
adrenalin rush
if you parachute
or go down with a bungi rope,
but it’s maybe better to be part
of a iron horse
and alone with your self
and with the wind and the sun
see the road flashing by.

III

Let cars stand in rows
and busses full of unknown people
stop at many places,
while my blue motorbike
passes them
and drive to my destination.

Some Things Are Not True

some things are not true
though they all want to adopt the color of truth
they just can't be
because they are false, they will always be
that is the truth.

Things Are Looking Up

George and ira gershwin
Things are looking up
Ive been looking the landscape over
And its covered with four leaf clover
Oh things are looking up
Since love looked up at me
Bitter was my cup
But no more will I be the mourner
For Ive certainly turned the corner
Oh things are looking up
Since love looked up at me

Where the Wild Things Are

So wake up sleepy one
It's time to save your world

Steal dreams and give to you
Shoplift a thought or two
All children touch the sun
Burn your fingers one by one
By one

Will this earth be good to you ?
Keep you clean or stain through ?

So wake up sleepy one
It's time to save your world
You're where the wild things are
Yeah

Henry David Thoreau

All Things Are Current Found

ALL things are current found
On earthly ground,
Spirits and elements
Have their descents.

Night and day, year on year,
High and low, far and near,
These are our own aspects,
These are our own regrets.

Ye gods of the shore,
Who abide evermore,
I see you far headland,
Stretching on either hand;

I hear the sweet evening sounds
From your undecaying grounds;
Cheat me no more with time,
Take me to your clime.

Few Poems Are Remembered

FEW POEMS ARE REMEMBERED

Few poems are remembered -
Few poems are ever really known-
Few poems are chosen -
Few poems make us want to return to them again and again-

Out of thousands written every day
Perhaps one poem in a decade
Perhaps less.

This is not the poem.

One can write a lifetime
Without ever writing one such poem.

Most of us never write the poem
And most of us are not remembered either.

What I Know About My Dad Is Only A Few Things

What I know about my dad is only a few things,
eyes that radiates in seriousness,
he was sometimes strict but it was measured by love,
he was a god fearing man, but an Afrikaner
into the depths of his soul
and a teacher of history and Afrikaans

I remember his voice
reading the poems that he prepared
for post graduate studies in literature,
which made me get gooseflesh
from enjoyment

and so 'early autumn, '
'the headless horseman'
'Maria' and 'I will go to my father'
and many other poems
became to lie deep in my heart.

Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid

I feel like I could run away
Looking at a darker day
Oh Im pulling the shades away from my eyes
Its true the moody manners come and go
And its better that you never know
Some things are better left unsaid
Some strings are better left undone
Some hearts are better left unbroken
Some lives are better left untouched
Some lies are better off believed
Some words are better left unspoken
My ideas seem to frighten you
Are you really that afraid to move
Oh I guess that its your right to reason
Im still dealing with a force thats so strong
The force is stringing us along

Sonnet: Great things are born of sufferings

The Bee that stings, alights on each flower,
more gently than the kiss of a lover!
And though it sucks the nectar hungrily,
The flower gives it away, lovingly!

Twisting and turning through the birth-canal,
The baby comes out head first, crying loud;
When mother's sufferings become banal,
It turns into a sigh of relief, proud!

Great things are born out of much sufferings;
And this is true of Poetry that lasts;
In sufferings, the spirit becomes king,
With armour of grace/divineness, God casts.

Effortless man remains in laziness;
After pain comes relief, thats happiness.

Things are never what they seem

Funny how things are never what they seem
love is and illusive dream, coming and going like the tides of the sea
but like a mystical animal that doesnt exist many still choose to believe
but maybe, some how, some way, love can be discovered
and feelings that have long stayed dormant will be uncovered
the sensation will rattle your bones and fill your soul
and you discover that love is what makes life whole
but until then the emotions shall remain concealed
and love, yet another dream unfulfilled
It seems it only appears to those who believe, who dare to dream
Funny how things are never what they seem

Lament (O how all things are far removed)

O how all things are far removed
and long have passed away.
I do believe the star,
whose light my face reflects,
is dead and has been so
for many thousand years.

I had a vision of a passing boat
and heard some voices saying disquieting things.
I heard a clock strike in some distant house...
but in which house?...

I long to quiet my anxious heart
and stand beneath the sky's immensity.
I long to pray...
And one of all the stars
must still exist.
I do believe that I would know
which one alone
endured,
and which like a white city stands
at the ray's end shining in the heavens.


Translated by Albert Ernest Flemming

New Things Are Best

What shall I tell you, child, in this new Sonnet?
Life's art is to forget, and last year's sowing
Cast in Time's furrow with the storm winds blowing
Bears me a wild crop with strange fancies on it.
Last year I wore your sole rose in my bonnet.
This year--who knows--who, even the All--knowing,
What to my vagrant heart, for its undoing,
Of weeds shall blossom ere my tears atone it?
--New Spring is in the air with new desirings;
New wonders fructify Earth, Sea, and Heaven,
And happy birds sing loud from a new nest.
Ah, why then grieve Love's recreant aspirings,
His last year's hopes, his vows forgot, forgiven?
Child, be we comforted! New things are best.

Things Are Meant To Be

You've got to free it from your mind,
And let things go.
You've got to free this from your mind,
All the time.
You've got to free it from your mind,
To let things go...
Or,
You'll be left behind.

You've got to free it from your mind,
Everything is meant.
You've got to free it from your mind,
You can circumvent events.
You've got to free this from your mind,
All the time...
Because things are meant to be!

There is a freedom knowing,
Things are meant to be.
No need to poll a voter.
Things are meant to be.
Or heat up in a roast.
Things are meant to be.

You've got to free this from your mind,
All the time...
Because things,
Are meant to be!

There is a freedom knowing,
Things are meant to be.
No need to poll a voter.
Things are meant to be.
Or heat up in a roast.
Things are meant to be.

You've got to free it from your mind,
And let things go.
Because...
Things.
Are.
Meant...
To be!

Things Are Getting Better

Things are getting better
But still were not together
But I do feel a spark.
Loving you may seem
A little but unseen,
But I still love you with all my heart!

It just feels so right,
To dream of you at night
And wake up staring at your picture!
It may seem funny to know
bUt in my heart I know,
Somehow were still together.
Theres a reason I didnt move on,
cuz your still in my heart
and somehow I cant seem to forget you!

Your love is my drug.
Im addicted to your love
So lets set aside
our foolish pride
and lets make our lifes complete
Lets get together,
now and forever
lets get together again

Your my everything
Your all I ever wanted
yOur my dream when Im not asleep
Everytime I think of you,
all i want is to be with you
even when im fast asleep

Things are getting better,
though were not together
Things are getting better already
Now lets set aside
our foolish pride!
and lets make each other happy!

Things Are About to Change

It feels so strange to know for sure I have power,
Power to change my situation,
Give me a year and you won't recognize me,
I'll be so blessed,
God has always told me I would be successful,
but I did not believe,
I want and do believe now,
Better job this year,
Better money,
Less stress,
Less pain,
Less worry,
Because I just call on Jesus name,
I'm going to let him run the show,
Because I honestly don't know what to do,
All I can do is seek him and work very hard.
If I do my best God will take care of the rest,
Before I was not trying at all so God let me go my on
foolish ways,
Those days were horrible,
I'm glad there over,
No matter how ruff it gets or how bad,
I want to give up,
this time Jesus I just can't,
I have to know once and for all your power
and the power you have instilled in me,
So Lord please guide me and I'll try my best to fellow,
because Lord Jesus I know things are about to change.

Things are disguised

Everything is possible if things are disguised
Treachery is possible if words are cleverly chosen and promised
It is all possible if we prefer and resort to
As they are essential ingredient of life and very true

We have chosen the path to live in unrealistic world
Customary speeches are applauded and appreciated as bold
Reality has ugly face to show when come on fore
It is, there, accepted now and even that before

We have always followed the path of pessimism
We have limited tolerance power for criticism
This makes us sometime to feel insecure
Certain things we embark upon even if not very sure

Everything is possible here from hatred to distrust
These are indicated as worst enemies and recognized by most
We may speak of toll order but go down with temptation
We try to camouflage the action without any indication

We have one weak defense to offer
We may advocate the alibi of right to differ
We may also claim” to err is human”
Certain excuses are meaningless and always proven

Things Are Looking Up

If I should suddenly start to sing
Or stand on my head or anything
Dont think that Ive lost my senses
Its just that my happiness finally commences
The long long ages of dull despair
Are turning into thin air
And it seems that suddenly ive
Become the happiest girl alive
Things are looking up
Ive been looking the landscape over
And its covered with 4 leaf clover
Oh things are looking up
Since love looked up at me
Bitter was my cup
But no more will I be the mourner
For Ive certainly turned the corner
Oh things are looking up
Since love looked up at me
See the sunbeams
Every one beams
Just because of you
Loves in session
And my depression
Is unmistakably through
Things are looking up
Its a great little world we live in
Oh Im happy as a pup
Since love looked up at me
(bridge)
See the sunbeams
Every one beams
Just because of you
Loves in session
And my depression
Is unmistakably through
Things are looking up
Its a great little world we live in
Oh Im happy as a pup
Since love looked up at me

All Things Are Simply Possible, Just By God's Saving Grace!

I aimed to accomplish one thing,
But turned to be yet another;
I thought I was unfit in life,
But God brought me out of all strife.
All things are simply possible,
Just by God's saving grace!

I travelled by a road I chose;
It led me to an alien place;
I thought I had a blunder done;
God gave me timely rain and sun!
All things are simply possible,
Just by God's saving grace!

I felt awful and depressed oft,
And life had turned quite meaningless;
To God, I cried in despair, ‘Lord! '
My strength returned reading His Word!
All things are simply possible,
Just by God's saving grace!

I saw the modern world of man,
Afilled by sin and wickedness;
I felt like asking God, ‘But why? '
Hope filled my heart anew from sky!
All things are simply possible,
Just by God's saving grace!

I found all earthly life futile,
And wished from heart to earlier die!
But God renewed my spirits high,
And made my earthly stay worthwhile!
All things are simply possible,
But by God's saving grace!
