Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 824 (The Yard Has Been Stilled)

She ran through the yard, with a little dress on-

And, when I looked again, she was gone.

.

The years had flown, and now she was

all grown-

She was out in the world, she was on her own.

.

I remember when I first brought her home-

She didn’t have much hair at all, not much to comb.

.

And, then it grew all the way, down her back-

It was still that way, when she carried her kindergarten backpack.

.

She brought me joy, and when I talk with her, my

heart is filled-

The yard, where she once ran, has been stilled.

.

She ran through the yard, with a little dress on-

And, when I looked again, she was gone.

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.
