Animals

Animals
Composed By
James Henry Shelton

There are bluejays that fly
And deer that run
Sheep that call for others to come
Dolphins that swim
Dogs that bark
And cats that meow
From where they start
And eagles that soar
On easy wind
They are nice to see
Again and again
Rabbits that move
Through the woods they see
And owls that go
To the top of trees
And bears that go
From place to place
And in between
So they can eat
And explore where they meet

Waterfalls

They flow through the land
And sometimes
they hit the sand
And they are
such a sight to see
Even in the evening time
All is fine
They are sometimes smooth
They are sometimes rough
But it’s always a nice time
As they flow over the ledge
To the sediment below
Where the river
continues to flow
Oh how it goes

Wherever We May Go

Wherever We May Go
Composed By
James Henry Shelton

Today is a moment
Which may pass like the stream
A still calm flow of water
Observed under
the hot suns heat
Angels watch over the many
That come and go through
The places of the world
Yet time is on your side
Wherever you may go
For God made us all
Like the grass that grows
And he observes us all
Wherever we may go

About the poem:
I completed this poem in 2011
so it is a older poem.

God

God
Composed By
James Henry Shelton

He is the Creator
Of all things
Even small
He made it all
And even at night
When one prays
He is listening away
He is the Helper
When we need him to
Even before we have a clue
He is there
Even when we don’t ask a thing
It is written
That he gives a song to sing

Today

Today
Composed By
James Henry Shelton

It is a series of moments
Following one after the other
It is nice to see
What may come
Sunshine or rain
Or anything really
It is something
When good comes your way
And all is ok
During each time you’re awake
And you’re doing what you like
Even at night

Seasons

Seasons
Composed By
James Henry Shelton

There are four of them
Spring,summer,autumn
and winter
Spring is when
things are green
And when things grow
Summer is when it is warmest
And days have blue skies
to view
Autumn is when
the leaves are of a array
Which is ok
And winter is when it snows
And the ground
can be white below
