Children

Fright


The little goblins have left their mark

their ghastly decor glows in the dark

They are prepared for the spooky nights,

witches and ghost and lots of frights.

The purple haze glows all about,

cider brews until it is stout

Soon the long waiting will abate

days grow shorter, darkness stays late.

So walk among the Halloween’s play

Come and see but do not stay.

It is meant to make you scared

for all the ‘trick or treats’ who dare.

Tom Sawyer


Tom Sawyer would be proud

Of the curiosity he shows

His wonder and discovery

A small rock he throws

Standing an looking

He thinks once more,

To collect another rock and

throws off to distant shore.

Dedicated to my Grandson

Green Socks and Pink Sparkles


Her faithful wish each day

her green socks and pink sparkle shoes

Would always stay

On her feet looking down

She would see magic in her green socks

And sparkles all around

Her Mom would ask

Let’s take the shoes off for a while

It will help them last

The Princess looked away

Very surprised and shook her head

” no, thank you , not today”

A day of celebration


Aurora


1st Sunday of Advent


A wakeful glimpse

Into darkness that helps us

See past into the light

Stephanie


My Gaelic daughter,

A child of grace.

A spirited heart,

An angelic face.

Fears of a mother

Go ahead of her steps.

No greater joy,

Her pain is kept.

Walk among the clover,

Feed under the thatch.

Angels go as you rover .

A lassie of no match.
