The Melody of the Mountains

Oct 18th, 2009 | By John Waller | Category: Poetry

You see happy people and smiling faces   laughing children in faraway places, Climbing a mountain or floating downstream   just being outdoors living your dreams. The call of nature gathers her flock   striving for heaven by scaling a rock, Losing yourself with the passage of days   giving praise to friendly sun rays. The melody of the [...]



If Ever

Aug 14th, 2009 | By John Waller | Category: Poetry

If ever were a man whose life was blessed   With a woman’s love through every season, Whose joy filled soul was touched by love’s caress –   That man is me for you are the reason. If ever were a heart that love so filled   With ev’ry beat it grew more strong and true, Whose mad [...]



Thank You Lord

Thank You Lord for giving me this baby in my arms, And thank You Lord for keeping her safe from every harm. Thank You Lord for giving me a beautiful loving wife, And thank You Lord for giving me everything in my life. Thank You Lord for giving me the will to overcome, And thank [...]



Think of All God’s Children

In this world of high prosperity there is so much we can do To make this world a better place for those like me and you,   But in other lands not far away   There’s children dying every day For things we take for granted and things we throw away. Diseases that the modern world have [...]

Clemesphone was a wood nymph who lived near the whispering water, Her mother was the virgin soil, the river was her father.   It was her life to protect the woods, maintain them clean and pure,   She would patrol her home domain and sustain them safe and sure. She tended to its wild gardens and watched [...]



Of the Nature of Love

Oct 18th, 2008 | By John Waller | Category: Natural World, Poetry

Love, free and flowing Love, a tree that’s growing   You can see the leaves and buds a’bursting   You can feel the breeze, the roots are thirsting This is of the nature of Love. Love, new and knowing Love, a river that’s flowing   The current is strong but beneath is still   Forever flows on and always [...]



Let’s Reclaim the American Way

Where is the America that I once knew The land of our fathers, the place where I grew   The beacon of light   For the world shining bright Now it’s gone – where’d we go wrong? We used to be the compass for a world full of need No problem could stump us when America took [...]



Do Something Now (Before It’s Too Late)

Apr 22nd, 2008 | By John Waller | Category: Climate Change, Poetry

At the ends of the Earth, ancient glaciers disappear Its warmer there now than it’s been for thousands of years.   Ice shelves collapse and melt away   Caused by things we do every day, And if we don’t do something now   It may be too late. In the forest of rain in the South American Amazon [...]
