Merry 1st Christmas
in Heaven
(In memory of Teresa Fischetti)

Christmas has come
Heaven's gates welcome
My sister Teresa went home
Our Prayers for God to hear
Send Teresa Christmas cheer
Missing my sister here

Merry 1st Christmas
In Heaven Teresa

The Dream Catcher

Rest assured my child
In the dark night cycle
Promise dreamland visits
To come peaceful and still
Quieting your fears
In your early years
Your nightmares escape
Before you awake
Thru the chimes stretcher
By the Dream Catcher

— Susan Marie Davniero
Dad's Stray

My Dad was at the work cafeteria one day
When escaping indoors was a small stray
There in the corner hidden in the shadows
A stray kitten with grey stripes shows
Glowing green yellow eyes seem to plea
Starring at Dad for something to eat
Kindhearted Dad shares his lunch
Watching the small kitten munch
Apparently this lost kitten was left to roam
So Dad thought he would take it home
The stray kitten with coat of stripes
Fit into the family just right

Autumn Days

Autumn days witness
Brimming natureís dress
Sun shines duller
Upon Autumn color
Slip fluttering leaves
Escapes the trees
Gold, orange, brown
Blush the ground
Sunset cast a haze
Picture Autumn days

— Susan Marie Davniero
Welcome Autumn Dawn

Welcome Autumnís dawn
Crisp sunny morn
Harvest bounty call
Fruitful gifts of fall
By way of parkís trails
Natureís foliage prevails
Paints colors on trees
Blowing in the breeze
Acorns slip on the ground
Cooling fall abound
Ripe auburn shades
As the warmth fades
Amber spice blend
Flavors of fall again
Autumn days mellow
Comes winter tomorrow

— Susan Marie Davniero
Squirrel at my Window

Welcome sweet morning
Squirrel waits adorning
Scattered at will
Nuts on windowsill
Pounced from railing
Upon paths trailing
Burying the nuts
For winter huts
Breath of autumn blow
Squirrel at my window

— Susan Marie Davniero
Come, Learn of Me

Suddenly itís September
Its school days remember
Yet at any age turn
We can still learn
Students by a Holy Preacher
Jesus Christ Master Teacher
Beyond the school days
To follow His holy ways
Faith and love lessons
Lifetime class sessions
To study Jesus' Golden Rule
Enroll in a lifetime school
A student for eternity
Come, learn of me

— Susan Marie Davniero
9/11 Locked in our Memory

The day of the 9/11 attack
There was no turning back
Twin Towers doomed
Devilish flames loomed

Dawning horror surreal
Fallen towers of steel
Ruins down the street
Spills smoke and heat

Clouds barreling down
All over New York town
Suffocating ash wrath
Lies in the cloudís path

The scare has begun
People driven to run
A snapshot to see
Of a cityís tragedy

The sacrifice lend
Of police and firemen
Gruesome reality
Of the mass fatality

As years may past
9/11 forever will last
This day will always be
Locked in our memory

— Susan Marie Davniero
The Dance of the Trees

Suddenly I notice all the trees
With rocking and rolling leaves
Swinging in the windy breeze
In harmony with natureís jazz
Rhythm of the birds and bees
Tempo beat flowed with ease
The dance of the trees

— Susan Marie Davniero

An Enlightened Life

Seek what is true
That which is within you
Deep in your soul
Meditation has told
Appraise your value clout
Now by reaching out
The light points the way
meeting to live every day
Love, charity and kindness
Living life to the fullness
Wisdom in daily living
core of your being
all to be taken
for a life awaken

— Susan Marie Davniero
Only Writers Get It

Words donít fail me
On my paper journey
As a writer to be heard
By noun, prefix or verb
With words I find
Speaking my mind
I am never at a loss
Of words to toss
Letter, essay or story
I am in my glory
Spinning words around
With the written word
Wrong or right
I continue to write
Itís all about me
My writing legacy

Sincerely, Susan
