Well this page was just a project for a while.It happens that cleaning my garage I ran into an old phone book and I found on the cover this poem dedicated to the Veterans of the Armed Forces of the United States of America.

So this will be my first poem as a tribute to those Veterans, who made this great country.

I am an American

I owe you no apologies nor will I accept
those apologies made for me by others.

If you dislike me ----you dislike me not for
what I am but for what you are not.
By my own sweat , I have created a lifestyle
which I desire for all men.

To the world, I have shared my wealth and
given my blood, not because of obligation ---
but by free will . I have fed the
hungry of the world. Many bit my hand;
I used the other hand.

I defeated my enemies in battle, then
pulled them up from the ashes of defeat.
Once strong , they again attacked; I turned
the other cheek. Though I am strong , I
have never used my strength to rule others.
But do not misjudge me, I will not allow the
fear of my own strength to become my
weakness.

If you wish to rise, I will give you a helping
hand. But by the grace of God , and Iíll
be first dammed , if Iíll let you drag me
down so that we may be equal.

D. Ault

I have added some poems from my son George Luis Andrew

TREES

Swaying through the air
Monkeys howling like a bear
Birds chirping in the branches
Leopards creeping among the trees
Boas lurching through the leaves
Frogs hopping all around in the
morning breeze

HOT SPRINGS

Sparkles day and night
Stands without a fright
Marvelous and gleaming
Always hot and steaming
Never dull, but bright
