“……and we so hungry now are full”


 

“……and we so hungry now are full”

Comes Spottedy Goat and Littley Lamb, so draggely

in finding through singing and dancing all friends in far

distances ne’er foreseen ‘fore meetin’ th’ Babe so spraggley

tellin’ of questin’ and Light-n’ing for to seek without bar.

 

 

Comes Old Crookeye and Sheepsey Dog and Croakey

all stumbly and bumbly and hoppey and boppey to enter New Way

Comes Turtley and FloppyEared boy and donkey so stokey

with strange airs and spare dews and scarce grains for the day.

 

 

“Aye, aye, ye critters and unfolk,ye brothers and sisters so rare:

“Now be ye hunger so, thirst so for right true-blue berry and fruit,”

Crooned down Ol’ Crow from above New Trailin’ Way so fair.

“Now ye needs put eye and nose and ear to findin’ food w’out soot.”

 

 

“Oh, oh, dear Crow and Ugly Bird, we’uns so weak, so starved a’fore New Way,”

groaned all critterly friends in floppin’ and boppin’ and stoppin’ on path.

“Oh,  no, my no, all ye wingedy ones up high point to no food, no tray

of feedin’ such seekin’ groundlings just as we come to True Way in bath.”

 

 

For, lo, the critters did lay all about on high rocks o’er falls so pure and clear

Yet showing no vines or trees, neither fruit nor nut nor crust of ol’ fish.

“Oh, oh, woe, woe we bee’uns w’out food for bodies all stretched to get here;

“Oh, weesie beesie all knackered and knockered w’out hope of a dish.”

 

 

“Wait, wait, halt, halt, ye moanin’ groanin’ critters down there,”did call Ol’ Crow.

“Spot ye now, squint ye now, hear ye now, yon Bluesey divin’ in rushin’ river.

“Stand tall, ye now blessed critters, for ye soon be feed with Livin’ Bread down low.

“Stretch out ye hands and touch a New Bluesey, Now Rainbow Fly, w’ promisen quiver.”

    “Oh, weesie beesie all knackered and knockered w’out hope of a dish.” just loved that line 🙂 —- Good Ol Crow saved the day again!.. with his keen eye Granbee….
    Waiting for that Rainbow Granbee, to shine its halo around us in all its glory.. Always it never fails to appear after a storm, and that Sun/Son of Light shines forth upon the Earth once again..
    And my hands will also be outstretched!
    Love to you, and so enjoyed this one 🙂 xxx ~Sue

      I admit, Sue, I was much more rested and allowed myself to have more fun with this segment I selected to share here with you all. And please remember: its was Bluesey who dove into the rocks and deep underwater to bring back up the nourishment and the Rainbow Promise. Let us have ALL the color shine on our joined hands today,dear Sister Sue!

          Sue, this says so beautifully so much of what I believe, I could not help noticing the similarity between the Hopi word “elohi” and the Hebrew word “Elohim”! I really must do a serious linguistic trace on this! You are MOST blessed beyond compare for sharing this with me. I immediately shared on my Facebook timeline and on Twitter. I will no doubt come back here several times to forward via personal emails to some others, as well. The message that the decision whether or not to be a Rainbow Warrior is between each of us and our Creator is so very “spot on”, as you Brits would say! May every molecule of every rainbow fill your heart today, Sue!

            May 17, 2012 @ 04:26:25

            Granbee you are so very welcome.. I did a blog maybe several years ago now incorporating this Video And Love the ‘Spot on’… We are all from the same source Granbee whether Hopi, Brits or Black/green with Purple spots.. The Rainbow will be with me in my Dreams Grandbee as Im just about ready for an early night its nearly 10pm here and Im up at 5-30 for work.. So Goodnight my friend and Keep Blending those colours/colors 🙂 Love to you ~Sue

              Borrowing Cat Folsey’s phrase: May you sleep under a Rainbow Moon, dear Sue. May you arise to greet the sun with enormous joy and vig-ah (as your Sir Winston used to say during WWII!)

      May 17, 2012 @ 22:47:57

      Yes, Greg, I felt that the Living Bread should be seen as offered as from a servant, “down low.” So glad you enjoyed this! Thanks so much for your ongoing support and cross-references from your own blog!

    I got the part about scarse grains and strange airs. What’s spare dews?

    • granbee
      May 17, 2012 @ 22:50:45

      “Spare dews” , as in “very sparing of life-giving moisture” and at the same time, “spare dews”, as in “spare parts-type dews, just the moisture that was left over, as in “the crumbs under My Father’s table.” Love the way you inspect all my phrases–very, very helpful beta reader you are, dear Tots! Hugs!

    Rose! I love how we all march onwards and upwards even if we don’t know where we are going. Some times, it’s even better to close our eyes and see what light we can find.

      May 18, 2012 @ 03:48:52

    “Stand tall, ye now blessed critters, for ye soon be feed with Livin’ Bread down low.

    “Stretch out ye hands and touch a New Bluesey, Now Rainbow Fly, w’ promisen quiver.”…. love this… and this livin bread is the only bread that will get us satisfied for more than a few hours…

    • granbee
      May 18, 2012 @ 23:25:30

      Amen, Sister Claudia–living bread is what we truly hunger for, even when we don’t know it! So pleased you loved the lines where Bluesey Dragonfly was transformed into Rainbow Fly! (Willowdot21 prodded me on this one!)

    Old Crow squinted and blinked and winked at the bright lighted Blusey. Blusey dove down to the depths he swam with the fishes….. the sign of the ONE! They gave him the light , the colour and the food. Old Crow scratched his head he squawked and crawed he and and blues leaped and soared !! they fed their critterly crew they fed them OH! please God let them feed us too!

    • granbee
      May 19, 2012 @ 03:52:00

      Yes, willowdot, let us be fed with Living Bread and reflect back the Rainbow Light from a transformed Bluesey, now Rainbow Fly!

    There is too much richness to repeat all of what I see in your poem, Rose, but I just loved this line: “Oh, weesie beesie all knackered and knockered w’out hope of a dish.” It made me laugh ~ and laughter is joy in the soul! Thank you. 🙂

    • granbee
      May 19, 2012 @ 22:09:58

      Angela, I totally appreciate your laughter here. I have been hoping people would chuckle at the antics of these critters sometimes. They are US, you know! (And like a couple of my dear canine family members!)

    May 20, 2012 @ 10:55:00

    Of course, this is wonderful and enchanting, as always, Rose, but the lines that jumped out at me are: “groaned all critterly friends in floppin’ and boppin’ and stoppin’ on path”. and ““Oh, weesie beesie all knackered and knockered w’out hope of a dish.” I’m sure most of us, I, for one, have had those days of floppin’, boppin’ and stoppin’ on path and feeling like hope has left me for good…your words tell us that no matter what happens along our life’s path, we must never, ever lose sight of HOPE! It all works out in the end~Hugs! 🙂

    • granbee
      May 22, 2012 @ 00:06:07

      Hugs ever so hopeful of more hugs, dear Lauren! I am pleased several of you guys out there really enjoyed these particular lines, for my feet were “boppin'” as I wrote those lines. I am SUCH a critter!

    May 22, 2012 @ 16:47:36

    “Oh, weesie beesie all knackered and knockered w’out hope of a dish.” is too my favorite line in this delightful part . The critters always leave you a smile after reading , Rose.

    Have a wonderful day! Francina

      May 22, 2012 @ 21:54:13

    This line, Granbee, reached out to me profoundly–‘Now be ye hunger so, thirst so for right true-blue berry and fruit,’

    I so enjoy the allegorical aspects of your blessed critter journey tales!
