Happy Easter 2018

A Holiday returning only once a year

in spring when warm weather makes us cheer.

We all can laugh and sing and dance

around Easter fires with their warm red flames.

We enjoy the baby chickens with their beep

We watch symbols like the Easter lambs and sheep.

We smile, we tease, we all play funnies

enjoy the chocolates, eggs and Easter bunnies.

Spring 2018

Once again the first season of the year

has arrived, and just picks up in gear.

Flowers bloom, the grass turns green

everything looks fresh and clean.

**

Renewed life stretches and is waking

sleep is gone, life is in the making.

Birds, and flowers, water and grass

happiness is now as clear as glass.

**

Singing and dancing are taking over

we find luck in a four leaved clover.

We are proud and we all smile

dust is shaken off the winter pile.

**

Youngsters are shown by their proud Mom

birds and kitties nd puppies, all are calm.

The sun shines brighter every day

warms our babies on their way.

**

And once again we know it’s true

what we didn’t think when the cold wind blew

The Earth has once again shown that all the tragic

thoughts are gone by Nature’s magic.

The Little Buddy Wearing Makeup – A Riddle


It Looks like I wear glasses

my coat is silver gray

my hands and feet are very dark

all in all I look okay.

**

I’m not limited to hunting

at night time or at dawn

one can find me all day long

with a face like Makeup on.

**

It seems like I am washing

my food before I eat;

this is just a fairy tale

but believe me, it looks sweet!

**

A huge trouble-maker

that is how I’m known.

People seem to want us

but no family, just alone.

**

We look very cute and friendly

but hell, can we get pissed

when one day you feed and spoil us

the next day we get dissed.

**

It’s true we can be hand-raised

tamed and trained to see

but please just do remember

we want to be wild and free.

**

I am no pet to keep at home

to hug and smooch and swoon.

by now you might have guessed

I am the cute racoon!

F.E.Feeley Jr

frederick_poetry_ebook_take2

I am proud to present to you a collection of poetry I put together over the past 2 years. My poetry, like my other writing, is informed by life experiences, memories, seasons, or by things I’ve observed about the intrinsic beauty and complicated nature of humanity.
For a very long time – having been raised in fundamentalism – I believed there wasn’t much about humanity that gave it worth. However, through the act of creating art, I have discovered that simply isn’t the case.
In a few short years, I have discovered love, regained my faith in God, and most importantly, regained my faith in my fellow human beings.
I also discovered that the things that attract us to a person aren’t the same things that make us stay. Often times it’s our imperfections that are the most endearing qualities that we possess. I believe God regards us the same…

A Peek Back Into Our Past

When I think back into the time

of me as teenage-girl right in her prime

the telephone it had a dial,

you couldn’t pull it for a mile because the cable was in style.

Internet we did never see, we were outside with our injured knee.

We played, we ran and we have kicked,

ice cream was from us all licked,

and friends not only simply clicked.

We loved to read the Tolkien Orc and had pinboards out of cork

we pinned there photo jam, this was our Instagram.

**

We were not tattooed if you had checked,

we never found any cars we wrecked

never any walls we specked

but if we had them ever flecked, at least the spelling was correct.

Ebay didn’t yet exist, but our trash-day wasn’t missed.

Amazon was analogue

and named “Sears” as catalogue.

Singing and running was ‘in vogue’.

**

New pairs of jeans they did look new

no hint of undies, no slightest clue,

mine everyone just sure could tell

was the one with the small bell.

Yellow were the bathroom walls, if you didn’t have brown stalls

of brightness we kids had our share, to survive we put some stickers there.

‘Spin the bottle’ and grapevine and then the words ‘will you be mine’,

It sounds funny, but it’s true, no Match.com, we still got through.

Smoothie was called apple sauce, YouTube was an unknown loss

and please, don’t go and make a face, Pokémon was paper chase.

Winter Is Approaching

The air is cold, the trees are naked, people run around and sneeze

the ground is hard, the leaves are fallen, the wind howls worse than just a breeze.

After autumn coolness, wet streets common. skies a leaden gray they are

We feel the fourth season fast approaching, winter isn’t anymore that far.

**

The only thing we are awaiting, is the white, we want it swift,

soft white flakes that cover brown ground, a blanket, like a gift.

Some time far away, in past and future, spring was and will be, that we know

but at this moment what we wish for, is our long awaited snow.

**

Christmas time is around the corner, we’re looking forward to the Holiday,

but part of it is winter snow in which we all just love the play.

Please, clouds, give us the snowflakes we’re long already waiting for

allow the clouds to cover nature, ground, and plants, and so much more.

**

Nature, it will go to sleep, during winter, the cold and freezing time

while snow will cover, all year’s leftovers, the dirt, the wet and also grime.

In spring the world will be awaking, prepared to grow to play and toy

but when there’s snow in winter, there’s no reason, why we cannot enjoy.

**

Enjoy the cold and play the snow, go to sled, to ski, go skate the ice,

accept the moment, be yourself, winter will be over in just a trice.

Live in the here and in the present, build a snowman on your lawn

In a handful moments you’ll think back and today’s winter will be gone.
