William Shakespeare

And let me the canakin clink, clink;
And let me the canakin clink
A soldier's a man;
A life's but a span;
Why, then, let a soldier drink.

Tomorrow

wake up me wake up me tomorrow
tomorrow is my date
the harmony tomorrow will come
wait me tomorrow wait me

tomorrow is hope
tomorrow is heal
so call me tomorrow
still today is not gone
tomorrow is not came
but for sure the darkness will fade
and the day of tomorrow will come
the day of the freeman with faith
the day of praying with love will come
at the hill of Jerusalem tomorrow
with love
with care
for all tomorrow will come with peace
then for long in peace
in peace
in peace
in peace....

Slit the wrist and let it flow.

Hate and pain, feelin’ it in my veins.
Hate and pain etched in my mind.
Love and hate are all the same,
Life and death are all our problems, but you treat them as there mine.

Slit the wrist and let it flow! !
Slit the wrist and let it flow! !

Life and death are all the same in my mind.
Life and death are all the same,
Play with fire and get burned.
Accusations flying my way, will they ever stop?

Slit the wrist and let it flow.
Slit the wrist and let it flow.

Life and death are all the same.
Life and death, when will it end?
Anger and frustration all boiling to the top.
Vengeance and Violence seems to be the only way.

Slit the wrist and let it flow! !
Slit the wrist and let it flow! !

Life and death, it’s all the same.
Life and death, is it my turn yet?
Death is living again.
Death is bliss I will never discover.

Slit the wrist and let it flow! !
Slit the wrist and let it flow! !

Life and death, it’s all the same.
Life and death, a new fire is born.
Death is an eternal fire being blown out.
Death is being free from the shackles of life.

Slit the wrist and let it flow! !
Slit the wrist and let it flow! !

Life and death, it’s all the same.
Life and death, it’s our destiny.
Death is the only escape.
Death is the forth stomach of a cow.

And let the oil flow cheaply!

Heads of state or government of 25 nations met in Belgrade, capital of Yugoslavia at the first Summit of Non-Aligned Nations on 1st September 1961. Sri Lanka was a founder of the Non-Aligned Movement which consisted mainly of developing countries that preferred to stay away from any power blocks. These nations were not aligned to any superpower – either USA (America) or USSR (Russia) .Sri Lanka’s newly elected Prime Minister, Sirimavo Bandaranaike attended the inaugural Summit, stepping on to the world stage as the world’s first woman Prime Minister. She attended the second Summit held in Cairo in 1964 and in 1976 hosted the fifth Summit in Colombo. Thereafter Sri Lanka occupied the chair for three years.The origin of the movement dates back to 1954, when the Prime Minister of India, Shri Jawaharlal Nehru had coined the term “non-alignment” during his speech at the Asian Prime Ministers Conference in Colombo. In this speech, Nehru described the five pillars to be used as a guide for Sino-Indian relations. Called ‘Panchaseela’ (five restraints) , these principles would later serve as the basis of the Non-Aligned Movement.The five principles were: Mutual respect for each other’s territorial integrity and sovereigntyMutual non-aggression
Mutual non-interference in domestic affairsEquality and mutual benefit
Peaceful co-existence

I hear a sad Bedouin song of an aging Dictator
Who sung with his deep voice for a long period!
Yes, let others to sing and get rid of the power.
Bring the lute and leave the wealth.
Like your younger days remember
You touched the Sri Lankan soil once
As Omar Mukthar the Hero!
At the 5th Non-Alignment Summit, Colombo, Sri Lanka in 1976.
We're old now and leave aside the burden
Watch how they sing with the different pitch?
Companion Camel too old now
And no more desert crossing
Stop at an Oasis!
Take the lute out and sing the oldest song;
'Where we've come from
And where do we go? '
And let the oil flow cheaply!

Walk Into My Room And Let Me Teach You

Love,
Siblings,
Expected;
Walk into my room and let me teach you!
And like the muse of love to capture your emotions,
But let me tell you a story.

Clinic,
Post office,
Security post!
Ready for an occupation in the name of love;
But, walk into my room and let me teach you.

Day is dead, and let us sleep

DAY is dead, and let us sleep,
Sleep a while or sleep for aye,
'Twere the best if we unknew
While to-morrow dawned and grew;
It may bring us time to weep:
We were glad to-day.
Joy a little while is won,
Joy is ending while begun;
Then the setting of the sun.
Afterwards is long to rue.

Leave and let it be

I have experienced life
in varying times
was forced to war,
was rich and poor,
studied at university,
learned from live
and much more from great men.

Whatever life brings and the oppression
done by government, or my fellow man:

take every thing
even my job, my cars
the way that I earn a living
but leave and let it be: my life,
my shirt, pants, shoes and wife.

Life And Death On The Stone In The Pond

on that rainy month
a stone was so kind
enough
to let the green moss
wrap its
solid body

there was
mutual bliss in
their
company
then the drought
comes in months
the river where the stone
lives
dried and
mud turned to
cracked
surfaces

the moss knows
that this happens
every year
dies peacefully
around the solid body
of the stone
like sleep waiting
for the next rain
the stone is
undisturbed

Release And Let Them Go By Name

How to avoid the persistence,
Of frequent headaches?
Release and let them go by name.

And be sure what is done is consistent.
Do not treat what is believe to be a migraine.
They will return for the hospitality...
One shows to host and claim to sustain,
For purposes of a popularity,
One hopes will stay unchanged!

How to avoid the persistence,
Of frequent headaches?
Release and let them go by name.

LoVe AnD SUiCidE *wat the hell is the difference? ? ?

Love and suicide are the same to me
They both can cause some serious pain
Love and suicide if not attempted right
Make u suffer till u know that life hurts
When love and suicide go rite
They feel so wonderful
I would trade my suicide
For love
And my love
For suicide
But which one would u choose?
It doesn't reallly matter
I think i might go with the less painful one* suicide*
Let's just wait and see................

Live And Let Us Live As Well

Cart, cartel, carpenter, carpet, cartography;
Vibrations! !
Reluctant to talk,
Red notice!
Live and let us live as well;
Planning entry,
Wailers,
In the valley of decision,
War! War! ! War! ! !
That is like today's way of greetings;
But, live and let us live as well.
Cat, Cater, catch, catalogue, catabolism!
Reactions,
Cheating!
But, the negative ways will never help you;
So, live and let us all live in peace than war!

A Song. If Wine And Music Have The Power

If wine and music have the power
To ease the sickness of the soul,
Let Phoebis every string explore,
And Bacchus fill the sprightly bowl:
Let them their friendly aid employ
To make my Cloe's absense light,
And seek for pleasure to destroy
The sorrows of this live-long night.

But she to-morrow will return:
Venus, be thou to-morrow great;
Thy myrtles strow, thy odours burn,
And meet thy favourite nymph in state,
Kind goddess, to no other powers
Let us to-morrow's blessings own,
Thy darling Loves shall guide the hours,
And all the day be thine alone.

Live And Let Die

When you were young and your heart was an open book
You used to say live and let live
you know you did you know you did you know you did
But if this ever changin
in which we live in
Makes you give in and cry
Say live and let die
Live and let die
What does it matter to ya
When ya got a job to do Ya got to do it well
You got to give the other fella hell
You used to say live and let live
you know you did you know you did you know you did
But if this ever changin
in which we live in
Makes you give in and cry
Say live and let die Live and let die.

Light Up And Let Go

The way you're holding me
I'm gonna blow up in your face
You know the way
You're gonna light up and let go
You better let go, let go
You better let go
You wanted flames
But now your tears won't put out the blaze
Before you run away
Know that i cannot let go
You better let go, let go
You better let go
You stood a watched me behind [?]
Remember close you eyes [?]
Remember life is a lie [?]
You let me cold and blind [?]
The way you're holding me
I'm gonna blow up in your face
You know the way
You're gonna light up and let go
You better let go, and go
You better let go, let go

Come And Play In The Garden

LITTLE sister, come away,
And let us in the garden play,
For it is a pleasant day.

On the grass-plat let us sit,
Or, if you please, we'll play a bit,
And run about all over it.

But the fruit we will not pick,
For that would be a naughty trick,
And very likely make us sick.

Nor will we pluck the pretty flowers
That grow about the beds and bowers,
Because you know they are not ours.

We'll take the daisies, white and red,
Because mamma has often said
That we may gather then instead.

And much I hope we always may
Our very dear mamma obey,
And mind whatever she may say.

Live And Let Live

You been holding back
And I know you're afraid to feel
Some one hurt you long ago
And the wounds just did not heal
You never shed a tear
You had to keep control
So the wounds kept spreading
Until they got down in your soul
Don't you think it's time
Time to forgive
Leave the past behind
Live and let live
Been holding onto anger
Now it's got a hold on you
And bitterness keeps growing
Affecting everything you do
Time to break the chains
You could slip them off today
It's time to make some changes
Before your whole life slips away
Don't you think it's time
Time to forgive
Leave the past behind
Live and let live
Don't you think it's time
Time to forgive
Leave the past behind
Live and let live
Don't you think it's time
Time to forgive
Leave the past behind
Live and let live

The Study and Beauties of the Works of Nature

O Nature! all-sufficient! over all!
Enrich me with the knowledge of Thy works!
Snatch me to heaven; Thy rolling wonders there,
World beyond world, in infinite extent,
Profusely scatter'd o'er the void immense,
Shew me; their motions, periods, and their laws,
Give me to scan; through the disclosing deep
Light my blind way; the mineral strata there;
Thrust, blooming, thence the vegetable world;
O'er that the rising system more complex,
Of animals; and higher still, the mind,
The varied scene of quick-compounded thought,
And where the mixing passions endless shift;
These ever open to my ravish'd eye;
A search, the flight of time can ne'er exhaust!
But if to that unequal; if the blood,
In sluggish streams about my heart, forbid
That best ambition; under closing shades,
Inglorious, lay me by the lowly brook,
And whisper to my dreams. From Thee begin,
Dwell all on Thee, with Thee conclude my song:
And let me never, never stray from Thee!

Read this and weep for The Ladies

Oh Eglantine, sweet Eglantine.
The air is filled with thy perfume.
Thou clingest to my lover’s tomb
and make a hallowed spot divine.

I would that I could hold her close.
As I was wont in days of yore
Alack alas I can no more
as thou dost still sweet brier rose.

Still faithful to her memory
I privately express my grief.
Although I find but small relief
I kneel and pray here frequently.

She was too perfect for this world.
The angels claimed her as their own
and I was left to grieve alone
Into despair I was thus hurled.

Oh Eglantine, sweet Eglantine
Thou guardest well her final sleep
and watered by the tears I weep
Her bones will with thy roots combine.

When my time comes I too will die
join my beloved in this tomb
Provide thee nourishment to bloom
Thou knowest well I do not lie.

Bloom on bloom on sweet Eglantine
Let thy perfume still fill the air.
I will not find it hard to bear
When she and I and thou combine.

Rock And Roll Across The USA

(kinky friedman, panama red)
Jesus said to pilate, remember the golden rule:
Love thy neighbor, don't you step on my blue suede shoes.
Pilate, he said to jesus, hey, you know this ain't no sunday school
Baby, everybody knows that the wheel's gotta roll,
Rock and roll across the usa.>
Wichita said to crazy horse,
horse, we're gonna let you choose
cause you'll have the huntin' ground of the reservation blues
You'd better slide over sitting bull-over, we got a highway coming through.
Baby, everybody knows that the wheel's gotta roll
Rock and roll across the usa, yeah-yeah-yeah!
Jesus said to pilate, remember the golden rule:
Love thy neighbor, don't you step on my blue suede shoes.
Pilate, he said to jesus, hey, you know this ain't no sunday school
Baby, everybody knows that the wheel's gotta roll
Rock and roll across the us<
Everybody knows that the wheel's gotta roll
Rock and roll across the us
Everybody knows that the wheel's gotta roll
Rock and roll across the us
Roll across the us
Roll across the usa.

O to live and let go

If what I call an end, beginning is,
Whence new destiny dares, ‘O ye soul, grow',
When all beginnings but as end it sees,
And all ends a new beginning in toe,
Saying, ‘O let me give thee a young heart,
And I shall now rekindle thine spirit,
‘That thine beginning get a balmy start',
I wish my life's journey is as well lit.

If only I learn to live and let go,
And be in tune with Nature, not a beast
In fight, fright, nor flight— one that does know,
Undivided one — not a mass of mist!

Is not, what the caterpillar calls end,
Be for butterfly new birth on the bend?
_____________________________________________ ___
Sonnets often get born on the cusp of unresolved dilemmas,
as this one was. Here, after an introduction— all the eight
lines spoken as if in one breath, there comes the dilemma,
‘If only I learn to live and let go'. The sonnet ends in universal
philosophy a couplet, still unresolved.

The rhyme scheme is ababcdcd bebe ff.
