A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

My Pride of Lions or, The Fantastic Foursome :)


He’s right up there, with the best of the Kings
Just a hard-headed Ram, but like his lion brothers, he sings 🙂
Caring, relaxed, wordy, wise,
With, nerves, chilled with ice 🙂
Now this one’s a Lion, I knew it from the first
Twinkling eyes, a smile and cheer, on the brink, to burst
To punch a line, wholesome, wondrous and witty 🙂
In a flash, no less, he gets right to the nitty gritty 🙂
The next, a pretty one, of the zodiac of twins, whom everyone heeds
Perhaps not a lion, but the Pride, she undoubtedly leads 🙂
Dainty, demure, incisive, and more so, the stronger
She, well, they certainly don’t want to mess with her!
All the while, with them ahead, he bided his time
Quiet growls, that grew to roaring, his signature chime
His is the Heart, he wears on his Van Heusen sleeve,
His smile, the sweetest, his will, I have faith in, and believe!
My Fantastic Foursome, that’s who they are
Nestlings mine, they’ve flown to lands distant,and far!
Each a delight, each so dear and sorely missed
God’s grace and blessing, they’re always wished!
