A Rose in Winter
The child’s wonder
At the old moon
Comes back nightly.
She points her finger
To the far silent yellow thing
Shining through the branches
Filtering on the leaves a golden sand,
Crying with her little tongue, “See the moon!”
And in her bed fading to sleep
With babblings of the moon on her little mouth.
by Carl Sandburg
Time & Cookies
Time quickly goes away,
like cookies on a plate.
Maybe if we bake some more,
We can make time wait.
Black Iron Gate
In the back yard all alone I sit,
Warm Spring sun, softness of breeze.
Trusting friends will come for a visit,
Hear the squeak of my gate oh please.
Seedlings float by brushing my cheek,
Thoughts of good times ever I seek.
Hopefully I will hear the sound of that gate.
Some friends will stop by tho it is getting late.
I try very hard to keep a smile on my face,
In my mind, I can wish myself any place.
No one is coming, guess not on this day,
I will stay positive and read my book.
At the black iron gate, no more shall I look.
Another rising, another day, Fall
Sitting under colored trees, crisp air telling of Fall.
With my books in my lap, near the black iron gate,
Indeed I have no doubt, soon my friends will call.
It’s the the best one of them all
The leaves are red and gold
This winter I will be olderby Jimmy age 6

A Cup of Tea
When the world is all at odds
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
And brew a cup of tea.
There is magic in its fragrance,
There is solace in its taste;
And the laden moments vanish
Somehow into space.
And the world becomes a lovely thing!
There’s beauty as you’ll see;
All because you briefly stopped
To brew a cup of tea.
Tea helps our head and heart.
Ted medicates most every part.
Tea rejuvenates the very old.
Tea warms the hands of those who’re cold.
