Why should my Heart be full of Cheer?

As I gazed at a fluorescent blue sky

Where no stormy clouds appeared

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

Twas a silent blustery wind but dry

And no wafting sounds could I hear

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

No birds to witness nor bee or fly;

Also, no ominous foreboding to fear

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

I then began to wonder why

My heart should be full of cheer

As I gazed at a fluorescent blue sky.

While my eyes upward climbed

Into that lofty, arid atmosphere

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

I continued to contemplate why

My heart should be full of cheer

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

This day was bitter cold and dry

As expected this wintry time of year

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

Draped in the cold sunlight

I stood on the land, frozen and bare,

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

Banks of snow, gleaming white

Still remain here and there

As the orbed sun had journeyed high.

I pondered and wondered why

My heart should be full cheer

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

A cold chill crept up my spine

Thanks to the frigid weather

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

With a start, I suddenly knew why

My heart should be full of cheer

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky:

I realized my Lord and Savior is why

for he promises to always stay near

As I gazed and gazed at the fluorescent blue sky

And the orbed glowing sun had journeyed high.

Poetry 201 Assignment 2: Limericks, Journey, and Alliteration

Okay, I am in day two of this poetry class and our assignment is to write a limerick containing a journey and alliteration. Limericks are known to be humorous and writing humor is quite a challenge for me. And composing one limerick with a journey and alliteration was a bit much so I wrote two separate limericks to accomplish this assignment. One focuses on a journey I once embarked on while the other limerick as an attempt at a more humorous alliteration. Do you think I completed the assignment correctly? I will say, I had fun creating these two short poems and I hope you enjoy them.

 

Surprising Journey

One day I began a journey

When it was cold and blustery

In the sky I gazed

And was quite amazed

To see a sundog watching me

 

Bessie Boo

Bessie Boo bought ballerina shoes

Dyed in black and blinding blue

She met a bashful knight

Who could not dance just right

And banged her toes all black and blue
