Each day I wake, I thank the Lord

Because I find I’m still onboard

I’m not too sure if that’s a gift,

Until life’s haze begins to lift

I check to see if I’m all there

My fingers, toes, my face and hair

Both arms and legs are working fine

On a ten scale, I’d guess I’m nine !

There’s a stranger in my parlor

How did he get inside

I thought I heard his noisy chirp

Wherever does he hide ?

Well,  never mind the sound he makes

I need to find him how,

The miracle of all of this

He’s in my house right now !

I guess I’ll learn to live with him

What else is there to do

Perhaps one day he’ll say farewell

Goodbye and toodle-loo !

Oh silly goose where have you been

What puddles are you waddling in

Can you reduce that honking noise

Perhaps you could acquire more poise ?

Just love your feathers, oh so soft

That make it to my sleeping loft

Your tiny goslings are so sweet

Tis sad to think, one day they’re meat !

Besides your noisy geese chorus

There is much good you’ve brought to us

With tales from famous Mother Goose

Midst spins of twists and turns unloosed !

 

 

 

A BING CHERRY ( 2017 ) 2017/07/28

Oh how I wish that I could be

A cherry on a cherry tree

I’d wear a gown of frothy pink

As early spring was on the brink

Rains soon would flush my garb away

Uncovering my round display

While time and warmth help me to grow

Soon all my cherry colors glow

And so, my friends when birds arrive

It takes some effort to survive

I’ll make it through to harvest time

Now isn’t that sweet and sublime

Please tell me after you’ve  seen me

Am I a top notch bing cherry ?

There are some days I still recall

When all my babies were quite small

They laughed a lot and cried some too

Midst pillows, quilts, scissors and glue.

The kitchen floor, their happy place

With lessons and great playing space

It was the classroom served them best

That through the years withstood each test.

I relish now the times we had

When all were young, not yet a lad

So full of hope who could forget

And nothing left to hold regret !

 

 

 

GALOSHES FREE ( 2017 ) 2017/03/10

These winter days keep hanging on

I really thought the cold had gone

How disappointing that it’s not

I gave it all the push I’ve got

And so we’ll have to tough it out

Of this I’m sure, I have no doubt

That spring is knocking at the door

And brings the change we’re waiting for

Oh what a pleasure it will be

When we are all galoshes free !

 

 

 

 

SAME LANGUAGE ( 2017 ) 2017/02/28

A little bird conversed with me

And offered me sweet sympathy

I’m sure he was a cheeky bird

Who whistled many happy words.

I couldn’t understand a one

But listening brought me such fun

He tweeted high, he tweeted low

His messages did stop and go.

Now he and I are on one page

We seem to share the self-same stage

It would be nice if we two could

Speak the same language as most should !
