Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Night Vision)

Night sight-

Used to be arranged through moonlight.

.

And then we moved to candlelight-

To read by, to lighten up our night.

.

Or at best a simple campfire-

To light up around, to keep away

darkness dire.

.

And then of course-

We headed toward gaslight, in full force.

.

In the running, eventually came electricity-

And then for the first time, at night, we could truly see.

.

With a bulb here, and a bulb there-

Bright lights were shining everywhere.

.

Night sight-

Used to be arranged through moonlight.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (A Second Chance)

He walked through the forest and what he saw-

Made him feel  overwhelmed, and he was filled with awe.

.

The birds sang in the trees-

His face was felt by the breeze.

.

He saw a squirrel scamper by-

He saw an eagle take off and fly.

.

He noticed the bugs that appeared everywhere-

Some were strange looking, but he did not care.

.

For he was seeing the forest, and taking it all in-

For the very first time, not like way back when.

.

For he was now an old man, and had passed the

forest, in the past without any thought-

Now the true meanings of nature is what he

sought.

.

He walked through the forest and what he saw-

Made him feel  overwhelmed, and he was filled with awe.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 230 (Still Stuck With Those Bills)

There was a woman who
had a rosebush by her
mailbox-
And everyday, of it, she
would take stock.

Until one day she happened
to get stuck by a thorn-
And then of that a new idea
was born.

She decided that it would
be best to take the rosebush
down-
So that no more thorns
would be found.

But it didn’t keep her
from getting stuck with
those bill, nevertheless-
But the act turned out to
be for the best.

There was a woman who
had a rosebush by her
mailbox-
And after taking it down,
of it, she no longer had
to take stock.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 237 (That Money Tree)

There was a lady who had a money tree-
And she always made sure that it stayed
dollar free.

For she would go out and spend and spend-
From the time she woke up til the day’s end.

She’d always make it a point to pick it at
night-
To ensure that no one saw her, and no one
was in sight.

Until one day, the tree did not produce-
She shook it real hard, she shook each
branch loose.

Her money tree had been all spent out-
Leaving her to want to plant another,
without a doubt.

There was a lady who had a money tree-
And one day, suddenly, out of nowhere,
it became dollar free.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 238 (Tried To Give His Best)

The little boy had to study for a test-
And on it, of course, he wanted to do
his best.
.
So, first, he went outside to play-
For to study, he would have all day.
.
And then he decided to go fishing-
That studying part, well, he was
still wishing.
.
The fish began to bite-
And he didn’t return home, while
it was still light.
.
That studying had been put on the
backburner-
And now to the little boy, it was
becoming quite a concerner.
.
The little boy had to study for a test-
And to find the time, he sort of tried
to do his very best.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 643 (To Begin The Day)

The morning began with a cup of coffee-
It had been this way since eternity.
.
As it began to brew-
I knew exactly what I was going to do.
.
A coffee cup, and a spoon to stir-
Always been this way, as it were.
.
And, as I poured the coffee, it went into
the cup well-
Hot as it could be, as far as I could tell.
.
A little added sweetner and a bit of cream-
Is one coffee lovers dream.
.
To sip it and to think of the day ahead-
With a touch of toasted bread.
.
It had to be this way, for this is the only
way to begin the day-
Couldn’t figure out any other way.
.
The morning begain with a cup of coffee-
It had been this way since eternity.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 642 (Fixing That Bridge)

The bridge had to be torn down-
For much wearing down had been found.
.
When the bridge was brand new-
For many years, much traffic it could acrue.
.
But, as time began to take its toll-
Action had to be taken that would be bold.
.
It had been repaired many times, but now
it required much more-
To demolish it, was in store.
.
A brand new bridge would now be conducted-
Over several months it would be constructed.
.
In the meantime, another route-
Would be taken by the bridge crossers
without a doubt.
.
The bridge had to be torn down-
For much wearing down had been found.
