November's the month that you get a chance,To spend time outside a little while longer.Warm sunny days pop up now and then,But the wind is cooler and a little bit stronger.Leaf's dangling on branches here and their,Plenty of warning before they are totally bare.Darkness comes early, light no longer yours,Better get busy, finish up those… Continue reading November

My Cats in The Rain

My cats in the rain,  Sitting on the step.  I open the door.  She’ll come in I bet. My cats in the rain,  Out in the street.  She needs to come in,   I’ll give her a treat. My cats in the rain,  Her fur is all wet,  She’s starting to sneeze,  Now I’ll worry and fret.… Continue reading My Cats in The Rain

My New Kitty

My kitty was very quiet for the first few days,  It made me sad so I gave her lots of praise.  I gave her luscious snacks and many many treats,  So sure I was she'd have a disposition very sweet. Next morning from another room came a weird sound,  Before I was nearly awake my… Continue reading My New Kitty

Fall is Here

Fall is here once again Only I can remember when You and I walked many hours Through the leaves feeling loves powers Far beyond this quiet man The colder feelings now began Not just leaves turning red and gold Your love is turning crisp and cold Fall is here once again Was my favorite season,… Continue reading Fall is Here
