"For Mystery Lady on Her Birthday" #Poetry #mondaymotivation

It's the strangest kind of thing
we found when we got old
things got kind of difficult
but that only made us bold
We found a life in pictures
but not sepia from the past
since we love to find the things in life
we think are going to last

It's easy to find war
and fighting everywhere
all countries have their causes
but they really don't much care
that dark princes replace darker ones
and still they go nowhere
so we don't need the war
or the fighting anywhere

The Magic Land brings day lilies
in fields beyond measure
where we can walk and talk and sing
to enjoy them at our leisure
A lily lifts its head each day
and knows the next it will be gone
but it brings us quiet beauty
in its time and in its song

May your day be one of wonder
and may those lilies fill it now
may they bring the joy of peace
with flying fairies and a magic cow
since that cow is a clever witch
and has known how she should hide
where no-one will suspect
or think of what betides

That magic cow knows all good things
and you just need to treat her kindly
since the milk she can give
you should not drink blindly
when it confers a noble vision
which others cannot see
and that leads back to some pictures
which may set the others free

- Colonel Abuthnot Jones
with all the Love in the Universe

Peace

I love stuff like when I want to get something out of the microwave but open the refrigerator. Focus ... focus ... (larfs)
