Today’s the day for hearts and flowers

Along with Cupid’s finest hours

You’ll get a posey, two or three

And have a pleasant day, you’ll see.

Saint Valentine has long been gone

Replaced by Walmart’s gift coupon

Tis silly thus to celebrate

If all is not to be first rate.

Let’s wait to learn what will come next

And pray it’s not some silly text !

 

HAPPINESS IS UP TO YOU ( 2019 ) 2019/01/23

Oh, how I wish that I had been

The apple on old Adam’s tree

I’d shake my leaves and tuck them in

To keep his idle hands off me.

I’d tell him not to take a bite

Before the troubles could begin

When he and Eve, out of some spite

Took Satan’s dare right on the chin.

Oh, sad the day man was denied,

Remembering in all you do

That God to us has never lied

Your happiness is up to you !

The world outside is crass and cold

The air inside, both brash and bold

And takes time getting used to it

If we expect our lives to fit

Let’s make the best of what we’ve got

No matter if it fits or not !

 

LIFE WHIZZES BY ( 2018 ) 2018/12/24

I was a girl not long ago

Life whizzes by before you know

Today I’ve found I’m getting old

And really  suffer from the cold !

My sight’s okay,  bit fuzzy now

I see myself as the last bough

And at this stage I truly need

A hint of love, a little heed !

How quickly do the days fly by

Sometimes there is a need  to cry,

Or pause the clock to take a break

There’s just too much  of life at stake !

 

 

 

 

STILL ON MY FEET ( 2018 ) 2018/12/22

What’s that I hear upon my roof

Loud raindrops or a reindeer hoof

T’would be a very great mistake

If I some foolish error make.

There was a time that I recall

His bells were jingling in the hall

But that was oh, so long ago

How old was I,  bout five or so.

I spied the bells there on the floor

Outside of the old hallway door

Yet never caught a glimpse of him

Or of his jolly hairy chin.

I’m sure that he is very wise

Politely keeping his disguise

Perhaps next year we two may meet

If I am here still on my feet !

For those of you who came to stay

And others who just went away

Some traveled far and wandered wide

And searched in vain the other side

But friends remember golden days

And cover them with sugar glaze !

 

AMEN.

Old winter is around the bend

Not long before the year does end

The weather seems much colder now

Sure it will be alright somehow

We’ll bundle up and drink some cheer

And beg of God a great new year !

 

WITH MARSHMALLOWS TOO !
