Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 692 (Year’s End)

Up and around the bend-

The year was about at its end.

.

The days had flown by fast-

We thought the year would longer last.

.

But, as usual it was slow at first-

And, then towards the end, it quickened up

with a burst.

.

Every holiday had been celebrated with

full glee-

From the New Year to the end of the year

as best as it could be.

.

There appears no stopping of time that moves

on-

It’s here for a moment, and then it is gone.

.

Up and around the bend-

The year was about at its end.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 696 (Pets Love Christmas Too)

I went shopping for the entire family-

In the end, there were many Christmas presents, under the tree.

.

For Bacon, the pig, she got a special treat-

A large loaf of French bread, that she just loves to eat.

.

And, for Marie, she was very much in luck-

Little bread crumbs, for such a beautiful duck.

.

Austin and Ferbie, both got carrots, to match-

In between the play, those two rabbits are hard to catch.

.

Franklin, the turtle, wanted very much-

A deluxe tattoo set, for his shell, to add that special holiday

touch.

.

Little Man, the chiuweenie, always gets a bone-

From the time we got him, to today, as he has grown.

.

Minnie Mae, although really a boy cat, will eat anything-

Although a can of salmon happens to be his favorite thing.

.

Weezie, another cat of ours, is never satisfied, and howls

for whatever reason-

But, still deserves a treat under the tree, during the Christmas

season.

.

And, last, but not least, Tweety, our pigeon does require and

need-

That extra special holiday bird seed.

.

With all the presents wrapped, I was heartily finished and through-

And, then with shock, I suddenly realized that I had something else

to do.

.

The children and grandchildren hadn’t been shopped for yet-

Best, I make that list, before I happen to forget.

.

I went shopping for the entire family-

In the end, there were many Christmas presents, under the tree.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 308 ( Same Church Different Pew)

She had to go downtown to shop-
And she was dressed richly from
bottom to top.
.
Her shoes shined and so did her
hair-
To go out with makeup, she did
not dare.
.
As she walked along the street
she got a frown on her face-
For she saw a lot of drug addicts
filling up much space.
.
They hung out on the corners
and appeared to get in her way-
She didn’t understand how they
made it day by day.
.
As a matter of fact she looked
down on them , for they were
not a bit like her-
She was a proud person, while
wearing her fur.
.
As soon as she got home she
reached into the med cabinet
and got her a pill-
It would suffice her for the
moment until-
.
Until the moment that she would
have to go to that other doctor
to get some more-
She had a long list of doctors,
who would not recognize her
when she walked through their
door.
.
She had to go downtown to shop-
And she was dressed richly from
bottom to top.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Mittens For Grandmother)

Gee, the weather got cold-

As the winter began to unfold.

.

Not once in the month of December-

Did I ever wear mittens, as far as I could remember.

.

Other children wore them, and grownups too-

Guess that is what they needed in order to get through.

.

But suddenly this year, things began to take a turn-

My hands were getting cold, causing me great concern.

.

But not for long for the solution was right there-

Other folks were wearing mittens, and my hands were bare.

.

Off to the store, for this grandmother, for my very first pair-

Now when it is cold, it is obvious as to what I will wear.

.

Gee, the weather got cold-

As the winter began to unfold.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 671 (Reminder)

The weather is getting cooler and the holiday season is  on-
The list of things to do can keep one busy all day through,  beginning at dawn.
 .
The holiday food list must be made, and put to the test at the  store-
For family will be coming, and while you’re there, you’ll pick up so much more.
 .
The house has to be cleaned for company, that will  come-
Many do it themselves, while the job is done by others, for  some.
 .
Between Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year, there  is just so much to do-
Before having the chance to actually sit down and enjoy the  holidays
through and through.
 .
The last final touches, the outfits to wear-
The presents bought, to show that you care.
 .
November and December is filled with so many fun things to  see-
The sights, the sounds, the children dancing with delight,  merrily.
 .
And at the end of each day, we all kick back to relax our  heads,
By fluffing up our pillows, and enjoying our comfortable  beds.
 .
But wait!! There is one thing that one cannot  forget-
The lists have been made, but something appears to be  missing
and yet-
 .
What exactly could it be! It is hard to remember every  single detail-
Especially the one, that cannot be forgotten, without  fail.
 .
Check your smoke detector, and make sure it is in working  order-
Amongst the holiday decorations and the turkey/ holly  border.
 .
For one  thing is certainly clear-
The most precious detail of the holiday, is that you are  here.
 .
A quick check is all that it takes-
Always put this on the top of your holiday doings,  for
goodness sakes!
 .
Yes, you were supposed to do this task at the time
that we put the time back-
But, one more reminder would not hurt, during a
special season, to keep on track.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 736 (Forestry)

The forest used to be thick-

And, then it started to get sick.

.

First a majority of the trees came

down-

Many left behind, but, not like before

found.

.

And, then the drought came to finish off

the rest-

The forest was no longer looking its very

best.

.

Between building the neighborhood and

Mother Nature’s hand-

The forest had become just another plain

piece of land.

.

The forest used to be thick-

And, then it started to get sick.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 644 (Bare Trees)

The leaves on the trees were green-

All summer long that is how they were seen.

.

Then something happened and they began to fall-

After turning different colors, no longer green at all.

.

As the wind picked up and began to blow-

The leaves tried to hold on, but were in downward flow.

.

The fall season had arrived and the weather began to change-

The look of the landscape was in re-arrange.

.

Green was no longer the highlight of the day-

For they had changed colors and had blown away.

.

Trees bare to hand around until spring-

Not an unusual activity, but a usual thing.

.

The leaves on the trees were green-

All summer long, is how they were seen.
