Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (On A Summer Day)

During the summer many things are hot-

And then again some are not.

.

A pool tends to stay cool-

But not that outside stool.

.

A glass of water with ice is nice-

But to drink immediately from the hose

one has to think twice.

.

Under an apple tree, a breeze might yield-

But never mind that idea, in an empty field.

.

As the sun continues to beam down-

It’s less likely that a cool spot with be found.

.

During the summer many things are hot-

And then again some are not.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Roaming Jack)

Dallas went to visit his friend-

Who lived up and over the bend.

.

He had been there before-

So for him, no new experiences would be in store.

.

He knew that his friend had a giant lizard named Jack-

Who always stayed in this cage, keeping him intact.

.

As  Dallas went in and sat down-

He noticed that Jack was nowhere to be found.

.

He had to ask where Jack was for the lizard he could not see-

As a matter of fact, the cage door was open and it was empty.

.

His friend let him know that Jack now roamed the house free-

And of many different places, around the house is where he could be.

.

Dallas usually stayed longer, but this time he was in a hurry-

Not because of the hospitality, but because of a big lizard worry.

.

Sooner or later Jack would come to the room where Dallas had settled down-

And when he did arrive, well, to make a long story short, Dallas would no longer be found.

.

Dallas went to visit his friend-

Who lived up and over the bend.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Solitaire)

I can remember back in the old days, taking out the playing cards, to play Solitaire.

It was a fun and simple game that required nothing else but for the repetitive action

of laying out those cards.

.

There was no one to compete against except oneself. I usually kept a pad nearby, to

mark both the wins and the losses. For some reason or another, the loss column would be

always greater than the win column.

.

That loss column would feed the drive to play one more game. If I could play one more

game, then that would opt my chances, to putting, another mark in the winning column.

The cards I played with had many different designs, on the outside. Some strange looking,

some very pretty, and then there those of ones’ favorite TV character.

.

Of course, there were the days when someone else would be involved. We’d play Crazy 8 or

Battle. Both games could take plenty of time. It was called passing the time.

The one game that I never enjoyed playing was 52 pickup. Someone would ask, and the other

one would have to pick them off of the floor.

.

Nowadays, I still play the same old game, but I do not have to shuffle or lay out the cards. That

is done on the computer for me. There is still the same mental stimulation, but less is required

to keep the game going.

.

One thing that I’ve noticed though, is that the amount of winning games are still far less than the

losses. By hand or by computer, those losses still continue that drive, for that one more game.

.

“Always a moment to spare-

For one more game of Solitaire.
