A Toast to our Next Door Neighbor; PLUS, Children of a Common Mother

A Toast to our Next Door Neighbor

This year's our neighbor's birthday
and I'm hoping that she knows
just how much it means to us that she is there.
She's a friend we've grown to cherish.
She is generous and kind.
Yes, our neighbor always looks for ways to share.

Born in 1867,
she is strong beyond her years.
And this year's a chance to celebrate her birth.
Raise a Molson or some Murchie's
and then sing "O Canada"
to commemorate our next-door neighbor's worth.

Happy 150th Canada!

Children of a Common Mother

Children of a common mother
share a border like no other.
There's no wall that can divide us
based on all that yet unites us.

We both speak King George's English
as we feast on chips and codfish.
While we Yanks prefer our coffee,
our dear siblings sip their hot tea.

Both our nations boast rare beauty.
Our resources fuel our duty
to preserve our Mother's Nature
and protect it so it stays pure.

We are allies fighting terror
as we seek God's help through prayer.
Brothers, sisters we're united
and that makes our Mum delighted.

(the above words can be sung to the tune for the old Swedish hymn "Children of a Heavenly Father.")

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
