Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 835 (Not To Overlook)

I went for a walk, and what did I see?

What the earth, had to give, with all of its beauty.

.

The trees were standing tall and strong-

As I simply carried along.

.

There were flowers growing astray-

A newer one, for a brand new day.

.

The turtles were in the shell-

Guess they don’t like company, as

far as I can tell.

.

Little bugs crawling everywhere-

In the grass, on the rocks that were bare.

.

Sometimes we take this all for granted,

as we travel along-

To hear the birds, in full song.

.

Doesn’t take an electronic gadget, to

enjoy Mother Nature-

Been here forever, and in the future

will endure.

Three Ways To Tell That The School Stage Program Went Well (2008)

1. The audience showed up on time, and the show ran
smoothly.

2. The children were cute and sang their songs well.

3. You took enough pictures and video, of your child, to
spend the rest of your life pondering over it again
and again.
===========================================
The show always has more shine-
When a child walks out, and you think, that one is mine.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Valentines Are Forever)

We always made valentines for our parents at school-

As it was always part of the golden rule.

.

They ended up on the fridge, always of course-

With the other stuff, we made magnetized in full force.

.

And then there came the time, up and over the bend-

We gave a special valentine to a boyfriend or a girlfriend.

.

Marriage came later, and we always took the route-

Candy, flowers, valentines, and dinner out.

.

The years went by and the children came-

They made valentines too, and we hung them up

all the same.

.

Still taking care of the spouse, with a big I love you-

Forever we meant, and more of this tradition did accrue.

.

Sadly came the day, when the two became one-

Not through default, but death simply cannot become undone.

.

The feelings are still there, and yes it is hard-

As the flowers are brought to the graveyard.

.

Love continues with one left behind-

Still remembering, still thinking, with all of ones’ heart,

to give that valentine.

.

We always made valentines for our parents at school-

As it was always part of the golden rule.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 1004 (I Can Still See You So Vivid)

You went to Heaven, thirty years ago-
You were a person, that I was privileged, to know.
.
On this earth, we happened to meet in time-
And, we blended together, as well as my written rhyme.
.
I thought that when you died, that I would no longer be-
But, you tricked me and gave me a piece of your strength,
that I use daily.
.
Even in my darkest hour, (And you know that I have had a few
of those), I know that you are there-
You always accepted me as I was, you were always fair.
.
I wish that I could be more like you, for I was truly blessed-
To have someone who could love me, as I am, and generously
bring out the best.
.
You were the one-
Who validated me as a human being, as a person.
.
Yes, I still miss you, after three whole decades-
I can see you so vivid, a memory that never fades.
.
You went to Heaven, thirty years ago-
You were a person, that I was privileged, to know.
