The world isn't ready for "him" to be "her",
Since acting he never could ace.
But here is a secret that I now can share,
His singing voice is a perfect pitch Bass!

His singing voice is a perfect pitch Bass!
Like a cello of an aspiring nightingale,
Born of an egg, hatched by love,
Renowned, for songs in the twilight.

Renowned, for songs in the twilight
the whippoorwill spreads delight
to all that listen and seek release,
from pain, they seek some peace.

From pain, they seek some peace
As prayers and pleas rise to the sky,
Ending always on the same refrain

Pain, pain, go away
We've taken all we can
Be done, go away, be gone,

Don't come back another day

Don't come back another day,
Nor week, nor month, nor year.
Listen now to what I say,
Don't come back at all, you hear?

Don't come back at all, you hear,
understand what I'm saying to you, my dear,
relinquish any hopes of me, you see,
that I might ever set you free,

Decide that you will stand alone
and carry on, perhaps atone,
for all the hurt you've done to me
and now just know we both agree.

Here is my latest work. My thanks for checking it out.

And now just know we both agree
We'll go on one last spending spree
Fling all caution to the winds,
Abandon frugal cares with glee

Whatever nonsense our hearts desire
Will lift us from this tired quagmire
Our senseless greed will lift us higher
Common sense lights no fire

Alas too soon this spending spree
Comes to an end before it begins
As once again you and me
Eye to eye
Do not see

Do not see
Do not hear
Do not worry
Do not fear

Evil there is, all about,
But goodness is there too.
Be aware and never doubt,
Your faith will see you through.

the genetic code
gave scientific proof
to Darwin's theory...

But do we, though?
We think we do,
Those people who,
Cause so much strife,
Creating new life.

So yellow bright
Herald spring
In all her might.

With her vernal command

in that sadness of mine that you know.

Hi Ssv! Welcome to the forum games!

The aim of this thread is, the last line of the previous poem becomes the first line of yours.

So, yours should have begun with Anna's last line, "in all her might".

In this case, I'll do some line stitching together of both your last lines

In all her might
With her vernal command
Sweet zephyrs waft
Over thawing fields
Melting snow,
Rivulets run
Seeds soon sprout
Push,
Reach to the sun

But not just yet
January's only begun
There's still a while
Before winter's done

Before winter's done
I hope I shall see
More soft, white snow
adorn the trees.

And as our breath hangs
in clear, icy air
The bright, unhindered sun
Creates a harsh, white glare.

Bringing back memories,
As clear as the day.
Music from the seventies,
When it begins to play.

Those carefree times
before the stress
and strain of life.
We were truly blessed.

When life was slower,
Soon to be dust,

In a silent butler.
There's a violent Cutler.
He swashes buckles
and buckles swashes,
every day, his face he washes,
then he dons his big, huge galoshes,
haunts some ships and plots revenge.
Until one day, his undoing comes,
foiled again, by those meddling kids!

Hi Andrew! hello1 nice to see you wave

Foiled again, by those meddling kids,
Jumping leaping prancing young goats,
Eating laundry from the line
Complaining when they're fed porridge oats
It gives them the bloat

What did you expect?
Nanny goat wants to know
You're just little kids
Now up you must grow.

Evening, Gypsy. It's been a while, but here I am again evil4

Now up you must grow.
Don't be so darned slow.
Listen, ya bam,
you're gonna have to face it,
Sam, it's your turn to clear the snow!

Sam, it's your turn to clear the snow!

But Ma, can't Pa go?

Oh, come on Sam, don't test me so,
It's your turn, as well you know.

I'll do it if you pay me dough!

Just do it, Sam, or your tea I'll throw,
In the bin. I'll do it you know.

Oh, alright, Ma, I'll clear the snow,
And when it's done, the grass I'll mow!
