Ducks and Eagles Way up in the sky Eagle soars all alone Far from the mud below Flying high in the blue He thinks it is true That he’s the best bird in the show While down at the farm Ducky waddles along With his tribe by the edge of the stream Leading them on To the cool water’s edge Where their dirty feet Can be washed clean Now that I your Lord and Teacher have washed your feet, you should also wash one another’s feet John 13:14 NIV Ducks and Eagles by Peter Caligiuri Copyright 2021 all rights reserved
Late for Lunch I’ve no questions only answers Ducky said to Dad one day I’ll show you I’m the smartest one Why should I do what you say? Then Raccoon heard his boast and paused And slyly licked his paws He walked down to the water’s edge And stood to give applause When Ducky heard the sound he looked And saw Raccoon’s smiling eyes How wise this creature Ducky thought To see where greatness lies But sadly by next day at noon Ducky didn’t show for lunch Where he was off to no one knew But his father had a hunch! The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: But fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7 KJV Late for Lunch by Peter Caligiuri Copyright 2021 All rights reserved
Now that we’ve been in Florida for a while I look back and remember the worst part of Winter up North was not the snow and ice but the constant grey skies with a splash of chilly wind. In light of the grey skies and chilly wind we’ve all come through in 2020 I thought I’d begin with some gentle humor in verse with hopes it will brighten your day and shine a little light on the beginning of your 2021.
Ears Only ears can hear That’s just the way God made us If ears could see or hear They’d certainly betray us But when God fashioned ears Those humble awkward things That flop about and wiggle On little inner springs He made a way to tell us How much we’d been forgiven And then He set and tuned them To hear His words from heaven Oh - only ears can hear That’s just the way God made them Humble listening gifts That lead us to obey Him Ears by Peter Caligiuri copyright 2018 All rights reserved
