A TRIP BACK HOME!

A TRIP BACK HOME!

I took my love back home

To meet my kin,

You’ll never guess

What happened then!

 

Ma was on the front porch,

As was her habit,

Canning beans and knitting,

All while skinning a rabbit,

 

Pa was out back,

Dancing a jig,

While sharing a jug

With a one-eyed pig,

 

Things went plum crazy

After that,

My love met Uncle Clem

With his coonskin hat,

 

Things were jest fine

Til Clem tipped his cap,

And my love saw the raccoon

Was still a living chap!

 

My love skedaddled,

It’s half past noon,

Tell her I love her

And to come back soon!   😊

LOVE IS LIKE A HONEY BEE!

LOVE IS LIKE A HONEY BEE!

Love is often like

A sweet honey bee

Filled with nectar,

Flying happily,

 

And, like the bee,

When it takes flight,

Love can also

Reach great heights,

 

But please listen,

There is one more thing,

Just like the honey bee…

Love can STING!   😊

TRUE SIGNS HE’S NOT YOUR VALENTINE!

TRUE SIGNS HE’S NOT YOUR VALENTINE!

How can you tell?

Is there a sign?

That he’s really not

Your true Valentine?

 

For instance, does he track mud

Onto your floor?

If so, then quickly, show him

Back out the door!

 

Does he watch Shakira dance

“Just for her song?”

Then, it may be a sign

He’s just “Mr. Wrong!”

 

And when you’re not watching,

Can you also tell that

He’s really trading insults

With your sweet little cat?

 

And does he react to all your plans

Like he’s diseased with Mad Cow?

Then, you know he’s not “Mr. Right,”

It’s a sign he’s “Mr. Right NOW!”   😊

BEING A GRANDPA!

BEING A GRANDPA!

Being a grandpa

Is really grand!

It’s the grandest thing

Which God has planned!

 

It’s like God has given me

A second glimpse,

Of my own darling,

Little imps!

 

I can’t have enough,

If I only have four,

I’ll always dream

Of having four more!

 

And grandpa visits,

End like this sweet poem,

You sugar ‘em up,

And send ‘em home!   😊
