Rock of ages, cleft for me
Let me hide myself in Thee
Rock of ages, cleft for me
Let me hide myself in Thee

Let the water and the blood
From Thy riven side which flowed
Be of sin the double cure
Cleanse me from it’s guilt and pow’r

Nothing in my hand I bring
Simply to Thy cross I cling
Nothing in my hand I bring
Simply to Thy cross I cling

Naked, come to Thee for dress
Helpless, look to Thee for grace
Vile, I to the fountain fly
Wash me, savior, or I die

Rock of ages, cleft for me
Let me hide myself in Thee
Rock of ages, cleft for me
Let me hide myself in Thee

Are you scared?
Get under a sheet –
Be a ghost!

Skeletons?
None after the treats
Is skin, bones.

Halloween
For tykes; rest: grow up.
Not for teen.

A goblin
Door to door – candy.
Then, gobbling.

Wee vampires,
Better than blood, like
Chocolate.

Witch cauldron:
Bubble, boil, bubble,
Bubble gum!

Neighborhood:
Houses too scattered –
No one knocks.

This One Let It Slip

A lip curl;
Eyes, a certain look –
Sneer, disdain.

——————–

The Invitation

Hungry? Cold?:
Thirsty? Foot weary?
Just lonely?

——————–

Flanders Field?

Poppies grow,
Spread, as does in war
The blood flow.
