It’s that time of year again

When thoughts turn to something tasty

And despite the summer rain,

We’ll be merry but not so hasty.

We’ve been through a year so tough

But keep smiling for goodness sake,

Sometimes it felt we’d had enough

But where there’s love, there’s often cake.

For that’s how we show we care

We get together, drink tea and bake.

And in addition to the food we share

It’s more love that we will make.

Rather Silly Rhymes – A Limerick

Said the Kingpin to Miss Golightly

“you look dirty and rather unsightly

And It’s rather a strain

Seeing you again and again,

Why don’t you attempt bathing nightly?”

 

This Limerick was written in response to the following word prompts:

and here is my attempt:

The other day I received a gift,

I thought would give me a much needed lift

but when opened, I saw

it was actually for next door

and Boy!, was I really miffed!

Limerick Woes – A Playful Limerick and a Terrible Poem

I thought I would enter Chelsea Owens Terrible Poetry Contest, which this week is to write a Limerick:

Here is the link to her post:

The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest 3/14 – 3/20/2020

I thought I’d try a Limerick,

It sounded fun, a lark, a kick,

but please take my advice

and always think twice

because now I’m feeling quite sick.

A Final Call – A Poem for Kira’s Sunday Scribbles

 

 

Of care and nurture, there is a dearth,

Though some instil some peace on earth,

But indecision from government’s elect,

May mean there’s not much Earth left to protect.

FOWC with Fandango — Dearth

Amelia Rose’s Day – a little poem.

 

 

 

Dear Little Amelia Rose,

Tomorrow is your day

You’ll be the envy of all your friends,

But not in a jealous way.

You’ll have to sacrifice your usual fun,

To stay so neat and glistening,

Because scuffed knees are just not done,

When at your Christening.
