Wearing of the GREEN

Days away.

With the winds mixing from oer the ocean and the bay  

I begin to hear the swirl of the pipes and the thump of the drum

and I know the time for another parade has come

Be here in ROCKAWAY
For Another Great
You are Invited to Enjoy

Blessed Spring

T'was as always, a grand parade!
You feel a bit sad as the pipes fade
Pack up the lads as the day turns to shade.
There'll be stories galore from each one of them.
Bout; which crowd was biggest
Or who played the loudest.
But the smiles I'll witness in the days to come,
Will be caused by one sure thing.
That after St. Patrick's Day
God will bless us with a lovely Spring.

Arizona Angel

Its been one year since Evil struck in Arizona.  (8 Jan 2011)
Arizona Angel

How long does it take to meet your fate
Early for some while for others late
Nine years ago when the towers fell
Caused by airborne devils from hell
Innocent lives were stolen away
For whom we will always pray
While such evil deeds that day took place
A family was blessed with a child of grace
Loved and cherished by all she knew
At nine years her life is through
Never to skip giggle have fun
Taken by a mad man’s gun
Came to us September eleven
Now this day an angel in heaven
