~Ocean Blue~
For James, From Shae

Whenever I’m around you,
I never can feel blue . . .
Well, not exactly, full-on,
One-hundred percent true.

Still, no matter what occurs,
One thing will never change –
Ocean or the mountains –
My love for you remains.

~The Richness of Grace~

My Lord was rich, and I was poor.
He set aside his riches for
A manger bed and swaddling clothes.
Poorest place of birth he chose.

Trusting in him, I knelt to pray.
Grace came down in a man that day.
‘Twas God’s riches at Christ’s expense.
Oh, the richness of grace!

My Lord loved earth, the people here.
They came from miles around to hear
The truth and kindness Jesus preached.
To their hearts forgiveness reached.

Trusting in him, I knelt to pray.
Grace came down in a man that day.
‘Twas God’s riches at Christ’s expense.
Oh, the richness of grace!

Now I have found a God to love.
His Spirit fills me like a dove.
For Jesus died and rose again.
He is now my truest friend.

Trusting in him, I knelt to pray.
Grace came down in a man that day.
‘Twas God’s riches at Christ’s expense.
Oh, the richness of grace!

~Darren~

Because of Dan Emr
He sits with me, eats grits with me, 
And then he holds my hand.
He makes me feel the grits 
That I’ve been eating taste like sand.
But then he turns around and sits with any other girl.
Now isn’t that predicament just dandy? 


He makes it there to chapel, 
And he makes it to the meal.
I’d tear my heart out for him; 
He could crush it ’neath his heel.
I’d like to try and tell him 
That I sort of, kind of feel
That after him nobody else could please me! 

How do you solve a problem like Darren?
How do you grab his shirt and pin him down?
How do you find a word describing Darren?
A player, a flirt, a king (of hearts). 
Many a thing you’d love to hear him tell you 
Many a thing you try to understand. 
But how do you catch his eye? 
Without him you know you’ll cry!  
How can one guy be so much in demand? 
Oh, how do you solve a problem like Darren? 
How do you let him know you think he’s grand?

When I’m with him, I feel stressed. 
He’s my focus; I’m obsessed. 
He can send me into dithers of delight. 
With an ego that’s so huge, 
He’s a guy I’d hate to lose. 
He’s a cute one, he’s a hot one, 
Hold him tight! 
He'll politely tell you lies.
You'll get lost in his dark eyes. 
He’s a heart-throb!  He’s addictive!  He’s a man!

How do you solve a problem like Darren?
How do you grab his shirt and pin him down?
How do you find a word describing Darren?
A player, a flirt, a king (of hearts). 
Many a thing you’d love to hear him tell you 
Many a thing you try to understand. 
But how do you catch his eye? 
Without him you know you’ll cry!  
How can one guy be so much in demand? 
Oh, how do you solve a problem like Darren? 
How do you let him know you think he’s grand?

~Spider~

O spindly-legged sequin,
Skittering across your
Threaded network of
Three thousand tiny trapezoids,

How nonchalantly you crochet 
A shimmering shroud for
An inopportunely inattentive insect!
