Ranger sings respect for our Saviour's plight. A mountaineer rides, destination in sight. A warm homestead in the distance, a subdued light. The bold frontier, adventures to lead. A rescue mission, a hero's deed. To restore the virtue of the cold and lost. Against all odds, we carry the cost. As he roams the plains, our shepherd so brave. He risks his own, their lives to save. A charitable cause, a golden heart. To restore God's love, happy thou art. He reaches out to secure the weak. The error of their ways, he turns a cheek. A guiding light points the way home. Safe and sound, so drives the poem. The Blue Dolphin Peace Poetry Digital Collection 2007. Copyright © Henri Dowd 2007, All rights reserved. A grand event at Christmas... by Henri Dowd. Memorable celebrations, presents in store. Good time festivities, decorations galore. Smiles all around, indeed I'm sure. Happiness, laughter and plenty more. Ceremoniously sing Christ's deserving praise. To honour His life in so many ways. Impeccably dressed, a splendid occasion. Our King so rare of a glorious persuasion. An evening of bliss to enlighten our hearts. As Christian's arrive, well versed in their parts. The music of angels enhancing the mood. A sumptuous presentation of choice drink and great food. A toast to our King on such a grand event. He honours us with His presence, as is Heaven sent. And so with all my heart I wish Him all the best. As I say my prayers that God has so blessed.

The rewards are equal to the task. If you're strong, don't hesitate to ask. I dream one day I'll publish a book. Page by page, feel free to look. The patience and courage, indeed it took. A game of honour, bishop to rook. Piece by piece, my collection grows. A life to be proud, and so it goes. My sights are set on something sure. Born and bred, creative to the core.

Whilst in transit to their destination, the magnificent spirit of the thoroughbred horse drawn carriage shuttled them as they cruised in style along the Yarra River boulevard with the view of the river, magnificent in it's grand natural state teaming with birdlife and a score of fighting fit physically adept champion oarsmen, complete with confident coaches encouraging enthusiasm as motivational words echoed in the aquatic domain. The shimmering reflection of a loyal moon traveled as their escort as the journey progressed favorably. Cupid, the topic of discussion, grinned from ear to ear, as they cuddled comfortably in the warm coach passionately: a few wonderful warm wet kisses never far from their devoted lips, with the taste sweetness lingering. At the grand old gateway to their evening’s musical entertainment, the ushers greeted them as the musicians sewed the most exquisite symphony into the tapestry of their hearts and minds. Each moment of their evening's proceedings were heightened with a warm glow of endearing excitement. The impressive stage was well set for an awesome classic concerto to be performed and experienced in the auspicious atmosphere of the abundant gardens in all their glory. The diverse fruits of Mother Nature’s efforts proudly and magnificently on display in her finest hour. The smartly dressed usher escorted them promptly to their front row seats. As they sat comfortably, and prepared themselves for the orchestral experience of the year, the lights suddenly burst forth emanating from above the stage. The view of the orchestra in position presented the crowd with a spectacular initial impression. The rhythmic sound of bass drums building signaled to their aural senses that a feast of splendid processional precision was eminent. They were now embarked on a magical musical mystery tour. A symphony in synchronicity stirred their senses as they enumerate steadily in succession. Tubular bells and xylophones complimented the dramatic essence of a romantic renaissance rhythm whilst the stimulating score unfolded with accompaniment from a line of players destined for greatness there on such a beautiful night’s entertainment to celebrate Princess' grand birthday. 3 The Blue Dolphin Peace Poetry Digital Collection 2007.

The introduction of the string section with the virtue of the violins, the class of its own, charismatic cello, the heavenly harp performed by angels. Carefully conducted classical instrumentalists combined with the trumpets, tenaciously timed, with three tailored tenors tapping feet to the beat as trombones tastefully keep time to heart’s content. The finest of flutes flamboyantly flavoured an artisan’s recipe for sweeping success as the bass guitars added an acoustic atmosphere which was pleasantly familiar in its ability to capture the moment by moment mysticisms. Impressively positioned before a well rewarded audience was a baby grand piano made in heaven. The swarthy dressed skilled musicians sat taciturnly as the boldest and most beautiful music to their blessed ears was experienced and filled an ever inspiring imagination with the most precious, overwhelming grandeur. As their special evening of celebration progressed, Princess and her distinguished companion Henri were seen having the time of their lives, smiling, laughing and fulfilling every moment with the fabulous atmosphere that Henri had painstakingly planned in her honour. Henri had always thought the world of his Princess, and as he often remarked "Your pleasure is my reward". This was true to his generous humanitarian nature. Henri was also known to write Poetry d'amour especially to fill her heart with the happiness and love she so richly deserved. The next secret venue on their itinerary was a welcome surprise as the theme of excitement and mystery continued. Princess and her loyal companion Henri boarded the magnificent coach and were appropriately destined for greatness as they pursued their dreams on a night of spirited pleasure. Their horses, who where in prime condition and had been professionally bred and raised and possessed a bold yet obedient demeanour, were well suited to the responsibility entrusted in these six magnificent thoroughbreds. Princess and Henri smiled with excitement as they arrived at "The Paradise Club" which had an enviable reputation for providing the finest dance entertainment facilities in the southern hemisphere. The prestigious nightclub, was strictly members only, of which Henri was an honourary VIP since its establishment. Before leaving the comfort of the coach, Henri, with a sense of ceremony presented Princess with a little black case, she smiled with curious anticipation. Princess was excited and generously planted a sweet sumptuous kiss of thanks on Henri's warm welcoming lips. A surprised expression on her beautiful face was a delight to Henri as they rejoiced. Opening her specially monogrammed gift case revealed her own VIP medallion to the exclusive venue. 4 The Blue Dolphin Peace Poetry Digital Collection 2007.

The Blue Dolphin Peace Poetry Digital Collection 2007. Copyright © Henri Dowd 2007, All rights reserved. The black panther's tale... by Henri Dowd. In the mysterious jungle the black panther prince named Chilli Dada was on the prowl in search of his beloved noble princess. It has been a warm summer’s day and now a subdued climate benevolently prevails. By evening's twilight, the black panther prince, quietly yet boldly makes his way to the refreshing stream to soothe his dry palate. His feelings forlorn, show on his face in the reflection of the water. The black prince then continues his search for his precious loved one, who has been missing now, for a few long hours whilst on the hunt for a satisfying feast in the glorious abundance of the forest. The ominous full magnetic moon played lonely luminous influence on the mesmerized wise owl. As he perched high in the canopy, he gazed into the depths of the endless deep blue midnight sky, with wispy grey clouds and diamond-like stars sparkling impressively above, capturing the feathery philosopher's wonder. The lingering shadows cast illusions forth by the dreamy winding river of destiny over yonder. The lush vegetation, a comforting and secure vantage point to a restless range of nocturnals now whisking through the deep green jungle on a mission. Eagerly the curious feral little crazy creatures, jumping up and down, as they attempt to catch some delicious darting dragon flies, keeps them busy for a while. Meanwhile swooping down from above, a fabulous flying fox goes with the flow, as she frequently fossicks for fresh fruit in the friendly forest. The awesome grandeur of the dense tropical jungle draws us in, inviting us to explore with an edge of excitement we become suddenly surprised by an audacious anteater going about his business, hungry and lost for words with not a treat in sight. An equally active hedgehog hauls a fresh hamper for a late night fiesta with his eagerly awaiting family of four. Just then a scurrying raccoon zipping and darting, with a courageous black cougar hot on his trail, but only momentarily, as the red hot raccoon took a leap for freedom through the rushes and landed with a big splash into the awaiting river with a sigh of relief as he scampers onto his get away driftwood floating down stream. Now in the limelight the frisky friendly frogs frolic in and out of the river croaking with delight as you might in the night. The rustling of the leaves as the warm wind blows through grand old trees sets the scene. Just then, a group of mischievous monkeys, swinging from tree limb to tree limb, curiously venture through the dense canopy in search of a suitable resting place for the night. It was very late and the clever little primates would have a busy day ahead fossicking for their favourite food. The Blue Dolphin Peace Poetry Digital Collection 2007. Copyright © Henri Dowd 2007, All rights reserved. The black panther's tale... by Henri Dowd. Echoes from the rugged mountain ridge in the distance in harmony with the inviting and orchestrated environmental sounds within the deep dark jungle domain. The repetitive sounds from the wildlife envelope our thoughts as entertainment while croaking of the fidgety frogs, the odd chirping of birds, the scant shrieks, the timing of the tweeps and cheeps, the hollers and hoots of a wide range of magnificent melodic birdlife from a teaming exciting ecology of rhythm building to a prolonged pattern of melodic music with an increasing crescendo in harmony dominating and then later subsiding somewhat to satisfy the demands for peace and quiet from some, while the rest sleep through the gateway to tomorrow. As Chilli Dada the black panther prince, tiring from his long search crept softly and slowly through the dense bush, he noticed beyond the marshes a rustling in the reeds. Could it be his lost princess or perhaps a delicious delicacy? A sense of hunger for both was deeply felt. He wasn't sure from a distance in the moonlight. So making his way closer, quietly creeping forward peering over to the dim lit banks of the blue swamp he suddenly heard a growling sound and a black tail wiggle. His ears shot up as his eyes lit up, and then wildly grinned with excitement. It was his precious princess of the jungle, and what do you know, she had caught their magnificent prey for their banquet for the night. Chilli Dada was so excited he almost forgot all about the feast fit for kings and queens, and hugged her dearly with kisses of passion and enthusiasm. This was to let princess know from the heart that he deeply missed her, and so thankful for they were reunited again finally. They vowed never to leave each other's side, a comforting thought, as they nestled together safe and sound and drifted off to sleep under the magnetic full moon and sparkling diamonds in the endless night sky.
