Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 911 (Hearts On Parade)

The hearts were on parade-

Both chocolate and paper made.

.

A large array, of color-

From the rainbow, as it were.

.

A valentine for you, a valentine for me-

For that is exactly, how it should be.

.

All shapes and sizes, are given out-

And, if you don’t get one, you know that

it is enroute.

.

A day of love, a day of friendship-

A day to also see flowers, and strawberries in

chocolate dip.

.

The hearts were on parade

Both chocolate and paper made.

 

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 (No Name Rhyme)

Once upon a time-
There was a special rhyme.

That was written a long time ago-
By someone we simply do not know.

And in the meantime many others-
Wrote poetry for their sisters and brothers.

To enjoy and learn-
To freefall with no concern.

And then came the day-
When who wrote what came into play.

The author was born and wanted to set the tone-
To sign a name and to become well known.

Once upon a time-
There was a special rhyme.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Sale Reductions)

Sales on tap-
For Christmas wrap.

And all other stuff too-
Lower prices coming through.

First it starts at 50 percent-
With it going down to 76 percent spent.

Oh what a deal to be had-
Only problem that is really bad.

Is that we have no money left to spare-
As we try to balance our checkbooks in a nightmare.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Not Much Christmas in North Korea)

In North Korea no Jesus to be had-
To celebrate His birth is very bad.

Thousands of Christians-
Locked up in North Korean prisons.

Despite those “love letters”-
Things simply are not getting any better.

Instead to pay homage to a grandmother-
Who in North Korea is like no other.

Jong-suk was born on Christmas Day-
Back in 1919 with much history underway.

An anti-Japanese guerrilla and Communist activist-
The “Sacred Mother of the Revolution” in the mist.

Wife of Kim II Sung North Korea’s first dictator-
And former leader Kim Jong II’s mother as it were.

Died under unusual circumstances back in 1949-
With much admiration at her tomb to yearly find.

No Christian holiday on the scene-
Via Kim Jong Un in full screen.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Television)

We used to stay home and watch TV-
But things are now different as we can see.

For as time has passed so has the tone-
While watching The Jeffersons from my phone.

No more being stuck at home on the couch-
No more waiting for a program in full ouch.

For we can now watch what we desire-
Without any thought, without any inspire.

Any time of the day or night-
Whether it be comedy, drama, or a big of fright.

We used to stay home and watch TV-
But things are now different as we can see.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 416 (That Old Stocking)

The old stocking was pulled out once again-
The first time, I saw it, I can remember when.
.
For Mother made it with her hands, ever so busy-
And, when it was finished, it was a glorious sight to see.
.
It began with felt that was so red-
So soft, as she continued ahead.
.
The elves that were put on, had beads for eyes-
The reindeer appeared to be, just the right size.
.
Of course, Santa stood out, among the rest-
My Mother created a masterpiece, she passed that test.
.
In the bottom corner was a bit of hay-
Yes, on this stocking, Jesus, was on his way.
.
My name was highlighted on the top-
And, not with just my name, did she stop.
.
It was a bit faded now, but I could see hers too-
I wonder if she knew what this would mean to me,
years later, when she was finally through.
.
The old stocking was pulled out once again-
The first time, I saw it, I can remember when.
