WALT’S PAST EXAMPLE:

WHEN LOVE COMES TO CALL

Opportunity has knocked,
the winds of change have blown.
But, a heart in flux can’t get enough
when love comes to call.

The winds of change have blown,
bringing something new to a life
that has waited for its coming.

But, a heart in flux can’t get enough.
It yearns for a touch, a caress,
a longing kiss to steer its course.

When love comes to call,
will your heart be willing and accepting to
a welcomed guest that might stay a lifetime?

WALT’S NEW EXAMPLE:

A NEW VOICE

There’s a new voice to be heard,
and it’s absurd since she has no voice.
Only a few weeks into this life,
she’ll have a lot to say before she’s through.

And it’s absurd since she has no voice.
She makes her noises and they’re cute,
(and she’d dispute that she has no “voice”).

Only a few weeks into this life
and she’s touched so many hearts.
She imparts the need to love her.

She’ll have a lot to say before she’s through.
Brooklyn Ariel would tell you that is true,
Until she finds her voice, she’ll use those eyes.
