The Season of Reason!

By L. Don Oliver

Tis the season for individual reason,

To each their own acccord;

I choose to celebrate the occasion,

Of the birth of my Lord;

Tis the season that belongs to everyone,

No matter who they may be;

It's the season that gladdens every soul,

From the worries that they perceive;

Too often it's used for politics,

Others will use it to digress;

Upon this season of joy and happiness,

That the secularist wish to repress;

Trying to alter my belief system,

Has been their effort from the start,

They can attempt to change my mind,

But they will never change my heart;

Upon this Season of Reason,

Let love be our Waterfall;

Peace on Earth, Goodwill to everyone,

And a "Merry Christmas" to all;

Swampyville's - "In My Life"!

From the song "In My Life" by the Beatles!

I hope John, Paul, George and Ringo will forgive

me for changing some of the words to THEIR song!

IN REMEMBRANCE OF THOSE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES ON

DECEMBER 14, 2012 IN NEWTOWN, CT!

There are places I remember,

All my life, though some have changed;

Some forever, not for better,

Some have gone and some remain;

All these places had their moments,

With loved ones and friends I can recall;

Some have left and some are remaining,

In my life, I've loved them all;

But of all these loved ones and friends,

There is no one that compares with you;

And your memory won't lose its meaning,

When I think of something new;

Though I know I will never lose affection,

For people and things that have gone before;

I will often stop and think about them,

But in my life, I will love you more;

THE PHOTO IS OF MY GREAT-GRAND DAUGHTER WHO IS FIVE YEARS OLD!

Swampyville's - The Holyday Tree!
by Swamptown

I wish you a happy Holyday,

I wish you a happy Holyday,

I wish you a happy Holyday,

and a Merry New Year;

Definition of Holy:  "Worthy of absolute devotion"!

The Holyday Tree!

By L. Don Oliver

Nineteen hundred and fourty six,

In the year of our Lord,

To purchase a great northern pine,

Our family could ill afford;

Our parents blaming no one,

For our increasing Spartan lot;

Saying a prayer of gratitude,

for everything we've got;

It was after thanksgiving,

Daddy and I went into the woods;

To find the best southern pine,

Anticipation described our moods;

Finding the best tree there,

Daddy cut it at it's base;

Saying, "Thank you, Oh! LOrd",

"For your infinite redeeming grace";

The scrawny tree standing forlorn,

In the corner of our sparse living room,

It's limbs outstretched and begging;

Only added more to our present gloom;

When Mama gazed upon it,

A tear came to her eye;

Saying, "It can only get better",

"That is, if we only try";

Alas, the times were tough,

Our budget was extremely tight;

Few extras that we could buy,

Even a string of Christmas lights;

Many strands of colored paper,

Cut and pasted into rings;

They were entwined together,

And wrapped around the wings;

Several strings of popcorn strung,

Painted pine cones tied around;

Adding to the Christmas Tree,

All the what-nots to be found;

Red, White, Blue crochet doilies,

Some crocheted with all three;

Lovingly placed in strategic spots,

All around the Christmas Tree;

Many multi-colored cloth remnants,

cut into various strands;

All tied to the tree limbs,

Where the bare needles demand;

Thin strips from an old white sheet,

Icicles they were to be;

Candy canes hung with care,

All around the Christmas Tree;

When some candy canes went missing,

The tree looked so forlorn;

Mama would replace them all,

On each and every morn;

A single crocheted Angel,

Crocheted for everyone to see;

Crocheted by Mama's loving hands,

And placed on top of the tree;

Scenes with reverent views,

All colored in crayon shades;

Standing there we all gazed at;

The transformation we had made;

Mama adjusted the Christmas Tree,

Until it was standing right;

Daddy played his worn guitar,

And we all sang "Silent Night";
