Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 415 (Goodfellows Toy Drive)

Back in 1911, it began-
Still going on today,
bearing a strong, generous,
hand.
.
A shoe-shine boy, who
would not participate
in a Christmas delight-
Through the generosity, of
others, felt a shining bright
light.
.
For Houston Chronicle, City
Editor, George Kepple, saw
the little boy’s plight-
And, set out immediately, to
set things right.
.
He passed a hat around, to
the Houston Chronicle reporters,
in order to collect money, for the
little boy-
Yes, indeed, and then they went
out and bought him a toy.
.
Goodfellows, is the name, that this became-
And, the lives of many children, since
then, has never again been the same.
.
A toy, for every single needy child-
A strong sentence, to put it mild.
.
Christmas is for children, and Goodfellows
ensures, that the statement stands true-
It’s up to everyone, to participate, in this
wonderful program, to do as we should,
naturally do.
.
Back in 1911, it began-
Still going on today,
bearing a strong, generous,
hand.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 664 (Those Houseshoes)

There was an old woman who didn’t live in a shoe-

But, apparently wearing the house kind, was her

favorite thing to do.

.

She had many pairs that she would switch around-

So that no worn out spots would be found.

.

Every once in a while, she had to go out–

Leaving the idea to wear the houseshoes,

to take another route.

.

Other kind of shoes, she did own-

But, the love for them had never grown.

.

Not like the comfortable houseshoes,

that she wore around the house-

No one to deal with, just the retired

spouse.

.

So, on the days that she had to go

out, and take care of business-

She would wear the high heels or flats,

none the less.

.

But, as soon as she got home, she’d

kick them to the closet-

And, quickly for her houseshoes is what

she would get.

.

There was an old woman who didn’t live in a shoe-

But, apparently wearing the house kind, was her

favorite thing to do.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 841 (That First Day)

As a rule-

It is a bit scary, on the first day of school.

.

Everything is brand new-

With new friends, to acrue.

.

New teachers and a new place-

Time to get comfortable, in this

unfamiliar place.

.

New school supplies, that must be put away-

For use later, on another day.

.

To grit one’s teeth, to make the day through-

To finally go home, and say a big whew.

.

For the second day will be A-ok-

We know where we’re going, because

we went through all of that on the first day.

.

As a rule-

It is a bit scary, on the first day of school.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 641 (Orange)

I saw orange when I walked into the store-

It lured me in, I wanted to see more.

.

Of course, it was orange, for a good reason-

For it was the Fall and Halloween season.

.

As a child I remembered the dress up times-

I remember the pumpkin rhymes.

.

I remember going to trick or treat-

I remember the neighbors, who did the

scary greet.

.

Each year there would be a new costume-

Proudly hung up in my room.

.

A fairy, a queen, and once a princess-

I remember looking my very Halloween

best.

.

Memories to last for a special girl-

Like many others in this big wide world.

.

I saw orange when I walked into the store-

It lured me in, I wanted to see more.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 630 (Playmate Gone To School)

Little Man watched out the window-

He saw his playmate, on the school bus,

ride away slow.

.

It had been different the whole summer long-

With no schedule, to worry about, the playtime

was strong.

.

Little Man would run and catch the ball-

He’d slide all the way down the hall.

.

Little Man would sleep in late-

Knowing that when he awoke, all

day long, he’d have his playmate.

.

But, suddenly things began to change-

Little Man’s life was in full re-arrange.

.

His playmate was no longer there during

the day-

For quite a while, the playmate would be

away.

.

School had begun, and for Little Man, he

had to adjust-

To wait for his playmate to come home,

patience was a must.

.

So he chewed on his bone, and hung

around until that yellow school bus

came back-

And, then life for Little Man, would get

back on track.

.

Little Man watched out the window-

He saw his playmate, on the school bus,

ride away slow.
