A Poem


As is often the way, after much searching on the web I couldn’t find anything I could ‘borrow’ to use for this post, so I am writing myself...

[licks pencil]

My house is so quiet,
My life is full of peace,
There is no screaming
Or yelling at least.


No toys on the floor,
No marks on the walls,
My house is untouched
By toy trains or dolls.


Every day I yearn
For toys to pick up,
For tears to wipe
And small hands on a cup.


But I have on my mantel,
Pride of place today,
A card made especially
For me on Mother’s Day.


A box of chocolates
Came with the card
With silver ribbons
And hugs, oh so hard.


And today as if by magic
A pretty Spring basket appeared,
Full of beautiful flowers
Showing someone else cared.


Thank you Aginoths (Mr and Mrs), for my lovely card and Chocolates. An especial big hug to LMB for her wonderful sticking skills :-)

And SleepyPete - what to say? You are the son I never had, but the son I have always wished for. Thank you, my darling boy.

To those mothers who can't be with their children, and to those children who can't be with their mothers - Happy Mother's Day, UK-Style!

That was a very lovely and touchy poem. Though our Mother's Day here is still in May, may I greet you a Happy Mother's Day!

Hmm...I've figured out what was wrong with viewing your blog. Turns out it is Opera...it works fine in Firefox.
