Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 726 (Butter Churn)

The butter took a while, to churn-

I had enough, and figured it was

someone else’s turn.

.

But, as I waited for someone else

to come-

I continued to churn, eventually, it

would get done.

.

The time seemed to pass slow-

As I gave the churning another go.

.

Breakfast, lunch, or supper, just

would not be, as it should be-

If the dish, for the butter, happened

to be empty.

.

So since the churning was all up to me-

I’d get it done, if it took an eternity.

.

The butter took a while, to churn-

I had enough, and figured it was

someone else’s turn.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 712 (Weeds)

Even though the grass was still low-

The weeds continued upward to grow.

.

They overtook the whole yard-

Giving it not a pleasant look, but one

that looked hard.

.

So, out came the lawnmower, to cut

them down-

Pieces of the weeds, were spread all

around.

.

A good job done indeed-

For it was something that the yard did need.

.

Not only did the yard look nice and neat-

But, a hidden surprise, began to take a front seat.

.

Little tiny purple flowers, began to emerge-

Really and truly, up from the soil, they began to

surge.

.

With tiny green stems, the purple colored

wee flowers stood out-

Previously, hidden by those weeds, no doubt.

.

Sometimes things might look like they are not

going well-

But, with a simple act, things can change,

and begin to look swell.

.

Even though the grass was still low-

The weeds continued upward to grow.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 709 (All By Themselves)

The family did well-

As far as everyone could tell.

.

They bought the big farm-

After arriving, without harm.

.

They planted the humogous field-

And, then harvested it, with many crops to yield.

.

A hard working bunch, this family was-

Twelve children, to boot, with Mom, Dad, and the cuz.

.

And, in their spare time, they built the railroad-

This family was ambitious, and carried a heavy load.

.

Never mind, that I left out a chapter or two of this story-

Re-written history, is the modern way, to be.

.

The family did well-

As far, as everyone could tell.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 630 (Playmate Gone To School)

Originally posted on Three by M.E./Rhymes of the Times:

Little Man watched out the window-

He saw his playmate, on the school bus,

ride away slow.

.

It had been different the whole summer long-

With no schedule, to worry about, the playtime

was strong.

.

Little Man would run and catch the ball-

He’d slide all the way down the hall.

.

Little Man would sleep in late-

Knowing that when he awoke, all

day long, he’d have his playmate.

.

But, suddenly things began to change-

Little Man’s life was in full re-arrange.

.

His playmate was no longer there during

the day-

For quite a while, the playmate would be

away.

.

School had begun, and for Little Man, he

had to adjust-

To wait for his playmate to come home,

patience was a must.

.

So he chewed on his bone, and hung

around until that yellow school bus

came back-

And, then life for…

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 657 (That Changing Weather)

The weather was just right-

Not too cool, not too hot,

right on site.

Short sleeves and shorts-

Was the thing to sport.

.

And, then all of a sudden things

changed-

Somehow or another the weather

was re-arranged.

.

A cool front blew in and the wind

was of great size-

Wasn’t planning for this, it was a

surprise.

.

Luckily, I had that sweater in the car-

That I always keep close, not too far.

.

For it came in handy, on this sudden

cold cold day-

As soon as I felt the chill, I put it on

right away.

Not too cool, not too hot,

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 658 (Off That Couch)

Originally posted on Three by M.E./Rhymes of the Times:

The electricity went out-

And, we were suddenly bored, no doubt.

.

For we had to get off of the couch-

And, yes, that was a big ouch.

.

To act like a previous generation-

A time when TV was not a sensation.

.

To go outside and check out the yard-

To occupy our own thoughts, that appeared

to be hard.

.

To have an actual conversation-

Instead of relying on reality TV, to get the

job done.

.

For in reality we have our own lives to live-

Family endeavors in which to workout and give.

.

To focus on that sometimes takes a major

event-

Like the electricity going off, and forced time

together spent.

.

The electriicty went out-

And, we were suddenly bored, no doubt.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Red Beans And Rice On Mondays)

Originally posted on Three by M.E./Rhymes of the Times:

It was a Monday, and it was so nice-

That I decided to put on some red beans, to have with some rice.

.

This was always done back in the day-

For Mondays were preserved for washday.

.

As the beans simmered, the clothes were washed and rinsed by hand-

There were clotheslines all across the Louisiana land.

.

To use after scrubbing and rinsing those dirty clothes-

To be hung out, and oh, they smelled so good to the nose.

.

Of course, this was just a part, of the washing chore-

For the ironing had to be done, and then the clothes put away in store.

.

But when all was over and done, it felt nice-

To know that all one had to do was boil some rice.

.

Red beans and rice after a long hard worked Monday-

Yeah, this was back, in the day…
