Little Words

When you are gone,
there is nor bloom nor leaf,
Nor singing sea at night,

nor silver birds;
And I can only stare,

and shape my grief
In little words.


Dorothy Parker

born to be happy

was loved and knew how to love

with a heart of gold

Poem:

.

here’s hoping that your every day is a Sunday
giving your Higher Power a day to rest
having gratitude for each and every day
doing His will makes it the best

accepting life without a worry
always trying to do the next right thing
do it now so later you won’t have to hurry
please don’t cry over the broken shoe string

begin each day with an attitude of gratitude
best to know that you have a choice
better to be seen than being viewed
show your love by using a happy voice

don’t pay Peter by what from Paul you rob
always the choice, happiness is an inside job

How Do I Love Thee

.

How do I love thee?

Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth

and breadth and height

My soul can reach.”

Poem:

.

easy words
a lesson for everyone
something about the bees and the birds
making learning fun

no subliminal innuendo
shooting straight from the hip
no need for a big crescendo
pictures from a comic strip

short words
a story for everyone
something about the ladies and lords
making life fun

choose the words that cannot tell a lie
straight from the stiff upper lip
put the ice cream atop your apple pie
doing a roundover into a backflip

long hard words
impressing no one
something about measuring wood in cords
if you can read you have already won

be a winner, read my poems every Saturday and Sunday
always written in short easy words
