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.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose #662 (The Candy Bowl Was Overflowing)

The candy bowl was overflowing-

As a matter of fact, it was glowing.

.

And then the doorbell rang, and it

began to get low-

For there were so many trick or treaters

on the go.

.

A handful here and a handful there-

Little hands, with bags were everywhere.

.

Dressed in costume from pumpkins to

the princess-

All the children in the neighborhood were

dressed in their Halloween best.

.

Before long the candy bowl was empty-

Not a piece left was there to be.

.

Had to hurry and fill it up once again-

For the doorbell was still ringing more now

than then.

.

The candy bowl was overflowing-

As a matter of fact it was glowing.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (05) Working To Keep That Candy Bowl Full

 

The candy bowl was full when I heard the first knock-

It was still early, as I looked at the clock.

.

It was Halloween night and as the children came-

The contents of the candy bowl were never again the same.

.

I filled it up over and over again to keep it topped-

And, had to keep it up earnestly as the traffic never stopped.

.

They came by the droves and were all so cute-

The idea to run out of candy could never be in dispute.

.

The candy bowl was full when I heard the first knock-

It was still early, as I looked at the clock.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Hurricane Season 2017)

Another hurricane season to be-
Beginning with Arlene, Bret, and Cindy.
.
Much prep time to stop and spend-
As we look for Don, Emily, and Franklin.
.
Named hurricanes in the year of 2017-
Such as Gert, Harvey, and Irene.
.
Supplies gathered and rules of safety-
With an approaching storm Jose, Katia, and Lee.
.
Maria, Nate, Ophelia, and Philippe-
We all wished the hurricanes would stay away.
.
An idea in which we all tend to agree-
But not reality according to Rina, Sean, and Tammy.
.
So as we head towards the 2017 hurricane season much
protection to see-
Last but not least Vince and Whitney.
