Independence Should Not Be A Question

Independence should not be a question,

It cannot be caged by man made boundaries,

It is the birthright of all men!

As a world we should cheer,

Hold hands in solidarity for those that long for freedom.

Our Scottish brothers and sisters strive for self-rule,

To live their lives of shared history as one nation,

Abandoning the sovereignty of the Crown.

This eve we should pray that their dream comes to fruition,

That they may stand as an independent Scotland

And proudly wave their flag for all the world to behold.

Love of the Word

Travel to cliffs of Scotland tall

Ancient cities with golden scroll

Coliseum of wonder your columns fall

Time, wind and rain have taken their toll

~

Fairytale lands with walkways of gold

Rabbits, a queen and Mad Hatters

Through Grimm and Poe the stories unfold

Whether Jack and his beanstalk does itt matter

~

Absorbed in Whitman’s Leaves of Grass

A cup of tea with Sherlock Holmes

Or Steinbeck’s exquisite Grapes of Wrath

When a Tree Grows in Brooklyn you’re never alone

~

Traveling around the world in 80 days

Digging treasure on an island deserted

Meeting the end in Moby Dick’s’ way

Though Scrooge’s demise is diverted

~

Dumas’ Musketeers are dashing them all

A letter of scarlet emblazoned

The howl of the wolf in the wild was called

Romeo and Juliet still amazes

~

The beauty of words in fiction, poem or prose

Allows travel to faraway lands

Mystery, adventure or as love stories show

The pricelessness of books in the hand
