Three Ways To Know That It’s Gonna Be A Hot Day (2010)

1. The sun is shining bright.

2. You are sweating.

Already working up a sweat-
And we haven’t even had breakfast yet.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 569 (Until The Day Is Done)

We used to play, in the summer sun-
From the early morning, til the day was done.
Outside we had so much fun-
Of course, using our imagination.
A program or two, on TV, we’d get to see-
And, then the rest, of the time, outside we
would be.
Climbing trees and making mud pies-
Counting bees, and catching flies.
Running, til we could run no more-
Always wondering, what next, would be
in store.
Playing hide and seek-
With that once, in a while peek.
Sitting under a tree-
Talking of what we would do next,
and what we’d grow up to be.
We used to play, in the summer sun-
From the early morning, til the day was done.



Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 989 (Sleep Will Come Later)

We were worn-

After the baby was born.


And, the leisure sleep went away-

For the baby awoke, both night and day.


To be fed, to be changed, and to be rocked-

Had we known, our past sleep time, we might have stocked.


But, through it all we figured it was best-

Later, in life, there will be plenty, of time, to rest.


We were worn-

After the baby was born

There is much happiness to find-

At the beginning of the day, at that

first moment of sunshine.

The New That Happened To Unfold-From The Old # 100

Those two plus two, side
by side, wheel skates that we
used to find-
Turned into modern inline.
