Three Reasons That Pets Can Be Sad (2011)

1. It’s not dinnertime yet.

2. They lost one of their toys.

3. The children are now back in school.

================================

A longer day-

With less play.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 760 (Taking A Break From The Golden Rule)

It was the last day, of school-

A vacation, away, from that golden rule.

.

The children heard that school bell ring-

And, suddenly they were off to their vacation thing.

.

The little red schoolhouse was suddenly-

My goodness, it was downright empty.

.

For the children were off, to the land, of fun-

Aside, from the home chores that had to be done.

.

It was 1900, and the new century had just begun-

The favorite activity, at this time, was to just set out

and run.

.

To run fast and as far as one could-

To be out of sight, there in the wood.

.

To come across that favorite spring-

To swim and take care of the fishing thing.

.

To fulfill that ultimate wish-

To bring home at least 3 huge fish.

.

The summers were long, and the children

savored it at best-

To climb trees, to hunt for berries, to

get plenty, of rest.

.

The time would come again, to pay attention

to that golden rule-

But, for right now, the children were going

to enjoy every moment, of the summer,

out of school.

.

It was the last day of school-

A vacation away, from that golden rule.

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.

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 # 673 (Tuffy The Turkey)

Tuffy the turkey went to school-

To learn the golden rule.

.

She strutted her feathers all day long-

She corrected her math when it was wrong.

.

She learned and took a hint-

At how to do the proper science experiment.

.

Tuffy wrote the best story ever-

In the midst of her English class endeavor.

.

And, when lunchtime came around-

Tuffy kept her feet firmly on the ground.

.

The corn tasted so good-

A second helping, yes, she would.

.

Back to class, Tuffy learned some more-

About the country’s history, Tuffy was

never in bore.

.

But, alas the school day did have to end-

Tuffy, went back home, that was up and

over the bend.

.

With thoughts to come back the next day-

Tuffy’s education was much underway.

.

Tuffy the turkey went to school-

To learn the golden rule.

To Change The Words To Clear-That Much Nagging Fear # 39

It’s Monday, and I’ve got to
get up for school.

I almost forgot that school
was out for the summer,
and for a bit I am free of
that golden rule.
