Hopefully, They will Say...

Does It Matter?

Love Found

Who Knew?

My Little Dog named-Art



Yesterday's Autumn

A Bowl of Cheers?

I Say!

My Quest

Near Miss

Dreams of Yesterday

Do You Remember?

Ten

When is it all going to end?

Sleep

Just Let It Be

La Vie en Rose

Heads in the Sand?

If I've Learned Anything!

Silver Bullet

The Path We Choose

A Soldier's Integrity

What is that Sound?

Back in the 50's Tonight!

A Red Rose

Golden as Gold can Be!

You See!

A Thousand Years in All

Death to a man!
No surrender while
this Legionnaire is
in command!

Archers make ready!
Lancers stand steady!  

Bowman fire!
Lancers full step ahead!

Swords clashing,
arrows flashing,
Blood splashing.
Death is celebrating
this bloody fray.

This is Rome’s saddest day.
Out numbered ten to one.
They will fight to the end,
for they know there’s no
other way.

On the ground their
banners have fallen,
the anguished wounded
are calling.

The Commander;
"Upon my sword I shall fall,
all is lost for Caesar’s
honor on this crimson
battlefield today."

For it’s the mighty
Legion’s last call,
a thousand years
in all.
