Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Goodbye Howie)

As I watch the grass cover your grave-
I know that I have many memories to save.

The mornings when I would call out
your name-
And you would quack back at me all the
same.

You loved me it was clear-
As you pecked my legs when I came near.

Breakfast was always so much fun-
Done at the same time I got my laundry done.

And now in the mornings it is quiet and
I hear no noise-
From one of my favorite feathered boys.

Goodbye Howie the years were plenty-
I know that in duck Heaven you must be.

As I watch the grass cover your grave-
I know that I have many memories to save.

 

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Rabbit)

It wasn’t fair-

That the rabbit was no longer there.

 

For 30 years ago-

He was there and it was so.

 

As a matter of fact the tree was gone too-

Had to have it chopped down to make it through.

 

We had stood next to the tree and admired our new place-

We had so many more good times to play and face.

 

But then the rabbit died and left a blank spot in my heart-

Hard to tell memories and reality apart.

 

Looking at a stump that now sits on that ground-

A brand new piece of life can be found.

 

A little tree on the rebound-

Wish I could hear that patter patter sound.

 

Of the rabbit who was my friend for five years-

Simple memories with dried up tears.

 

It wasn’t fair-

That the rabbit was no longer there.

 

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Pure Simple Fun)

Back in the day
We would make our way.

On Halloween night street to street-
In costume skipping it feet to feet.

In order to fill our bags-
From ghouls and witch hags.

The more candy we got-
The more we like Halloween a lot.

No we didn’t worship as you might will-
That nasty big old mean devil.

Just a simple fun night-
Filled with imagination and lots of fright.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Orange and Black)

To address-

The holiday we love best.

The one to sport the orange color-

And a bit of black as it were.

The one where we wear a costume-

The one that can be filled with doom.

On the other hand the one that is fun-

With silly characters on the run.

Where much candy eating is done-

After retrieving when we no longer see sun.

Door to door to trick or treat-

Where many neighbors and the children meet.

Bags filled in overflow-

We all have our fav places to go.

To address-

The holiday we love best.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 659 (The Pumpkin Patch)

The idea came to hatch-

That we had to visit the pumpkin patch.

.

It was just a small drive-

And, then all of a sudden the scenery

came alive.

.

The vines were so green-

Amongst the orange pumpkins, that

were seen.

.

Big ones and small ones, and some

in between-

Some were huge, and of course, some

were lean.

.

To choose, was a hard thing to do-

As we continued to walk, as we continued

through.

.

And, then all of a sudden we saw the perfect

one-

We snapped it off the vine, we were finally

through.

.

Sad to leave, though, for it had been so much fun-

Back through the field, to pay, and it would all be

done.

.

We smiled as we drove away-

With the perfect pumpkin, for Halloween Day.

.

The idea came to hatch-

That we had to visit the pumpkin patch.
