    "The April rain, the April rain,
    Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
    Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
    And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
    And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
    The cuckoo through the April rain
    Calls once again."

    - Mathilde Blind - "April Rain"

     


     I wish you dear Friend a weekend with peace
    and that you enjoy Mother Earth beauty.

    "The people I'm furious with
    are the women's liberationists.
    They keep getting up on soapboxes
    and proclaiming
    women are brighter than men.
    That's true, but it should be kept quiet
    or it ruins the whole racket."

    - Anita Loos -
     New York Times, 10 February 1974

     

     ... I simply love this quote.
    I hope that it makes you smile

    What if you slept?
    And what if,
    in your sleep, you dreamed?
    And what if, in your dream,
    you went to heaven
    and there plucked a strange
    and beautiful flower?
    And what if,
    when you awoke,
    you had the flower in your hand?
    Ah, what then?

    - Samuel Taylor Coleridge -

     

    ... I wish you my dear Friend
     a week full of dreams

    Good Bye Moon

    We have roamed the wild country
    We have seen mountains grow from hills
    With my brothers and sisters
    And now our time has came
    The two-legs have come in
    And killed all of our prey
    We are all so confused
    Because what have we done?
    The two-legs killed my mother
    My brothers and sisters too
    The two-legs has got me.
    I'll be with my family soon.
    Now the two-legs is over me
    As I get one last look
    At my boloved moon.



    ... with Love
    Ana

    Just another week

    Monday must be
    The most horrible of days
    But wait, please listen
    Do not worry my friend
    All Mondays must end
    Tuesday morning will be
    Faster will pass you will see
    Wednesday is the midle
    Some words I'ii write in a ridl
    Let us make this winter day
    A joyful and bright Thursday
    Friday is certainly the best
    You work with a smile
    And just for a little while
    Because tomorrow, Saturdat will be
    And after Sunday will come
    For you and me
    And we will go on living
    Another week has passed
    Another will begin



    Have a wonderful week dear friend
    With Love

    CONNECTED TO OUR MOTHER

    If you understand Nature,
    The deer will eat from your hand.
    The sun makes the plants,
    Animals eat the plants,
    The humans eat the animals,
    and Earth needs the humans to take care of it.
    So you see, as you stare
    into the endless sky,
    we live from our Mother Gaia's birth,
    and if you understand Nature,
    The deer will eat from your hand.
    And we all, plants, animals, humans,
    are children of the Earth

    Thank you for you:
    - for who you are.
    And for the words you send to me.
    Knowing simply that you're there
    So far away from here
    Yet thinking much of me,
    Opens up my happiness,
    Undone for all to see.




    ... for beeing such a perfect friend
    With Love

    "A friend is someone
     who dances with you in the sunlight and,
     walks with you in the shadows.
     Is someone
     who stays there in silence and,
     hears what you say no mater the subject.
     Walks by your side and,
     behind you and catchs if you stumble.
     A FRIEND is a gift, a treasure to keep,to honour,
     whom we give a permanent place in our hearts."



    ... I love you sweet friend and,
     I wish you a wonderful weekend.

    A Smile
     
    A smile
    can tell a story
    or whisper a single word
    Brightens a face
    Shadows a past
    Welcomes
    Repels
    A cover-up
    A window to the mind

    A stairway to the heart.

    by Maria (aged 12)




    ... I wish you dear friend,
    a week full of smiles

    What is a Poem
     A poem is hidden in the soundlessspeechless soft clouds
    Tossing turning twisting
    in the crystal clear aquamarine sky
    Look inside a pleasing pretty flower
    Climb immeasurable immenseimpressive mountains
    If you find a poem handle it carefully
    Like a newborn puppy
    For a poem can die or slip through fingers
    Like creamy butter
    And be lost in the dark streets
    Look in places where you
     have never been before
    And there you might find a poem
    Lost somewhere in the soft clouds
    The clear sky or a pretty flower
    Waiting for you!
    by Amber Hickman (aged 8)


    Have a great week

    Human Energy

    When I give light
    I also receive,
    When I smile
    I give light to others,
    they give light to me.
    It is with the light
    all of us give, all,
    that we are free.

    When autumn wind goes running
    It does some magic things.
    It gives the shadows dancing shoes
    It gives the bright leaves wings
    When autumn wind goes running

    It curls the bonfire's tail of smoke
    And shares a little whispered joke
    With cornstalks who delight to prattle
    It turns a seed pod into a rattle
    When autumn wind goes running

    A Special World

    A special world for you and me
    A special bond one cannot see
    It wraps us up in its cocoon
    And holds us fiercely in its womb.

    Its fingers spread like fine spun gold
    Gently nestling us to the fold
    Like silken thread it holds us fast
    Bonds like this are meant to last.

    And though at times a thread may break
    A new one forms in its wake
    To bind us closer and keep us strong
    In a special world, where we belong.





    ... with Love

    A true Friend

    A true friend never walks away
    A true friend will always stay
    A true friend looks out for you

    A true friend tries to make you smile
    Tries to replace that frown
    They may not always succeed
    But they rarely let you down

    My arms for you are open
    This heart for you does care
    And when I think you need me
    I'll try to always be there.
