Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 840 (The Yellow School Bus)

Here it comes, and my it is yellow-

Mama said it would be, and she should know.

.

For it just happens to be the case-

That one day, a while back, she was in my place.

.

A little girl, waiting at the stop-

Holding her mother’s hand, not to drop.

.

The first day of school shared by many

a generation-

Waiting for that yellow school bus is

a tender sensation.

.

Here it comes, and my it is yellow-

Mama said it would be, and she should know.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose ( Howie and Lily)

Howie and Lily were two baby ducks loved much by their human mother-

Who cared for them, in special ways, like no other.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

For she would hold them, and let them play outside-

They would swim in a pool, and walk together side by side.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

She protected them as best as she could-

To ensure their safety, she went the length, as she should.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

But on one sunny day, a strange thing occurred-

That would cause havoc, and all their lives would be stirred.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

Howie and Lily were playing outside, and their human mother stepped inside for a sec-

And immediately, she heard a call for help, an emergency, she could detect.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

As she stepped back out, she saw the fluttering of huge wings, as the vulture flew away-

She only saw its back, and became hysterical is about all that one could say.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

For as she looked for Howie and Lily, Howie was nowhere to be seen-

The vulture must have taken him, directly from the scene.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

Lily stood alone, and her human mother did not know what to do-

Howie must have been taken away, for these ducks always stood two by two.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

Cries were heard from this human mother, for her baby was gone-

And as she cried, she held Lily, as she checked the vicinity of the lawn.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

She wished she had not stepped inside, for anything at all, and watched her babies outside-

Her emotions and anxiety, were now in full ride.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

                  She looked to the skies, and knew that Howie would never come back-

Poor Lily, her life would have a hole, that would never be intact.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

And just as she got ready to go inside, with her one baby duck-

A miracle happened, this human mother had a second chance at luck.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

For Howie made a noise, and was suddenly found-

He had gone under the front porch steps, finally coming around.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

He must have been so scared that he headed quickly that way-

And didn’t make a noise, until he thought, maybe, that the danger had gone away.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

Lucky for them all, the vulture only had his eye, on the one-

And didn’t pursue Lily, who just stood still, and didn’t get much running for cover done.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

Now the three spend their days outside together, with no other tasks to be had-

As they enjoy their good moments, and put away the bad.

howie and lilyhowie and lily

Howie and Lily were two baby ducks loved much by their human mother-

Who cared for them, in special ways, like no other.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Barnabas Collins)

There was a time when we couldn’t wait to get home from school. Of course, we were not unusual, for all children yearn for that moment, but this was for a special occasion. Dark Shadows would come on about that time. To miss it, well, would be bad. No goofing around, on the walk home from school, but a mad dash.

A soap opera for teens, it what it was. Day to day, week to week, and on Fridays we would be left hanging. We’d have to wait the whole weekend, to see what would happen next.

Barnabas Collins was the vampire that we all loved. In normal circumstances, we might be afraid, but we would all root for Barnabas. The idea of him being found out, could not happen. We waited for him to leave his coffin, so that we could watch him walk among the living, until the sun came up.

I hadn’t thought about Dark Shadows in a long time. Years ago, I re-watched and enjoyed it. There are some things that just stick with you. The recent passing of  Jonathan Frid, brought the flood of memories back. Gee, he was 87 years old. I can still see him roaming around Colinswood. In the show he lived there a long time ago, came back, and to his fans, he is still there.

There have been vampires before Barnabas, and plenty of them after, but, he is the one that I fondly remember. The cape the cane, the picture of the “ancestor” on the wall. A time when all things could not be explained, and we loved them anyway.

Mystery, was the key word, which also reminds me of Alfred Hitchcock. Of course, that would be another story. I saw the picture of Sir Anthony Hopkins, who will be playing the master of suspense. I’m just like that kid that cannot wait to get home from school, except this time it will be after work. My seat at the theater is already reserved. Just have to dig up the patience, to wait, until the movie is released.

It looks like no matter how old we get, it is always a wonder to have something to look forward to. “Good Evening”, has just been added to the list.

“A fond farewell to bid-

To our favorite vampire, Barnabas Collins aka Jonathan Frid.”

The weekend is what
most work for-
As a matter of fact
,plenty of folks keep
score.

Monday is the first
day-
That most hate to
get underway.

Tuesday is Tuesday
with not much to say-
Just another work
week, underway.

Wednesday is the
middle of the week,
called the hump-
And if we get past
that, then most of
the week, we can
mentally dump.

Thursday is the
fourth day-
Meaning that Friday,
thank goodness, is
about to get underway.

And then of course,
there is Friday-
Yes, we’ve made it,
and that weekend,
will shortly be on
its way.

The weekend is what

As a matter of fact

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 760 (Taking A Break From The Golden Rule)

It was the last day, of school-

A vacation, away, from that golden rule.

.

The children heard that school bell ring-

And, suddenly they were off to their vacation thing.

.

The little red schoolhouse was suddenly-

My goodness, it was downright empty.

.

For the children were off, to the land, of fun-

Aside, from the home chores that had to be done.

.

It was 1900, and the new century had just begun-

The favorite activity, at this time, was to just set out

and run.

.

To run fast and as far as one could-

To be out of sight, there in the wood.

.

To come across that favorite spring-

To swim and take care of the fishing thing.

.

To fulfill that ultimate wish-

To bring home at least 3 huge fish.

.

The summers were long, and the children

savored it at best-

To climb trees, to hunt for berries, to

get plenty, of rest.

.

The time would come again, to pay attention

to that golden rule-

But, for right now, the children were going

to enjoy every moment, of the summer,

out of school.

.

It was the last day of school-

A vacation away, from that golden rule.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 812 (The Ants Celebrate Too)

The family got ready for the Fourth of July-

For it was a special day, is the reason why.

.

The celebration, of the country, was at hand-

Everyone would participate, throughout the land.

.

To first barbecue, and then eat, at the picnic table-

To fight off the ants, as best as one is able.

.

But wait there were no ants, to be seen-

The picnic table and the surrounding

area, of them appear, to be clean.

.

What is a Fourth of July picnic, without

an ant?

Hard to picture, just simply can’t.

.

The family looked around to see if they could

be spotted-

Surely, with them, the land would be dotted.

.

The family looked on the ground-

They looked everywhere ants might be

found.

.

And, alas, they were spotted in the

distance, on the hill-

They weren’t working, they were

just standing still.

.

Waiting, for the fireworks, they were

celebrating the Fourth too-

Tomorrow, there would be plenty, of

other picnics, to eat and go through.

.

The family got ready for the Fourth of July-

For it was a special day, is the reason why.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 795 (BEACH)

The beach was filled with sand-

For both feet, and the hand.

.

For the feet, to walk slowly through-

For the hand, in the midst, of a

sandcastle, to build and acrue.

.

Waves coming in and out-

Children running all about.

.

Seagulls flying in the sky-

Throw up some bread, and lower

they will fly.

.

Buckets to fill with shells galore-

Found this one and that one, just need

a few more.

.

People enjoying a summer day-

With sunshine, for all, especially

where the tanners lay.

.

The beach was filled with sand-

For both feet, and the hand.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Rubber Band Guns)

.

My mother’s childhood was spent
Not like today, but different.


They stayed gone most of the day
until dark-
Whether it be in the forest, for in
the local park.


And so many games were played
back in the day-
Imagination was used to pass time
away.


One in particular was shooting each
other with a rubber band gun-
It was daring and every bit as fun.


I asked if it hurt and got a great reply-
Of course it did, it stung, and felt like
one was gonna die.


When asked where did this “toy” come
from, out of the blue-
The answer was that great-grandmother
made them, with her skills that she did
accrue.


I find it funny and as a grandmother I
would find that idea hard to fly-
Simply with the reasoning, that someone
is might lose their eye.

A Child’s Time-In Simple Rhyme-2022 (35)


Yesterday we watched the Thanksgiving parade-


Where marching bands and characters come to life,
and dreams are made.

As they should-


Certain song tunes suddenly
bring back our younger days,
into our childhood.

Seems like the harder the rain
falls and gains-


The faster the cars, on the road,
travel on the slippery lanes.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Conspiracy Theory Back In The Day)

I noticed that a sanitary napkin product is in the news.
Which prompts me to step into my grandmother’s early
childhood shoes.


In the early 1900’s no one talked about certain things-
Such as sex, periods, and any other such topics with stings.

All was kept quiet, so if you wondered you might have to guess-
Explaining such things, as in today’s conspiracy theories, at their
very best.

My grandmother had a large family, with no birth control-
Is the way this story,can easily be told.

So babies came in the family, on a regular basis-
With another detail, that came regular too, that the other
children could not miss.

Babies came and little rags were hung on the clothes line-
Which became to the children, more babies to come, in full
visual sign.

So one day when my grandmother’s big sister hung some
of her own little rags on the clothesline-
All of the children including my grandmother had a sudden
anxious moment to find.

Their big sister was not married and God forbid-
Having a baby, unmarried, is something that would have
to be hid.

Back in the day, unmarried folks had kids, but kept it
underground-
Adopting in or out of the family is usually what would be
found.

Little did my grandmother know that her big sister was in
full menstruation-
So off with the rumors and conspiracy theories in complete
run.

Thank goodness nowadays we are all woke about these type
of facts-
For misinformation is such an ignorant attack.

Not knowing what is going on and making up a good
senario-
Is not a reasonable and safe way to go.

Getting back to the little rags at hand-
Thank goodness modern day sanitary products
are available across the land.

For the little rags did not hold quite good enough-
And surely back in the day, the women had it rough.

“Modern technology to capture-
What women, in all walks of life,
have to endure.”

The Need-To Read-2022 (32)

Many of us are simply found-


Not being able to put that interesting
book down.

The New That Happened To Unfold-From The Old-2022 (32)

Vinyls popular once again-


Like the 33 1/3’s, and 45’s,
that on our record players,
we used to spin.

Practice It Right-Let’s Be Polite-2022 (32)

To set that Thanksgiving table in full tone-


We know that we don’t care for all of our
relatives, as is pretty much always been
well known.

Gonna Try It-Not On A Diet-2022 (32)

To watch what I eat every day of
this coming week-


Except for Thursday, where I might
have my eyes closed, minus a tiny
peek.

Clear-That Fear-2022 (32)

Time has got to be spent-
Living every single moment-to-moment.
