Those Good old days
Whose that knocking at my door
is it that boy for another chore?
He brought me the milk and the bread
and said to me the eggs are laid
He gently gave a
smile to me
and said he did it all for free.

Two Little Sisters
Hearts entwined and hands embraced
Dresses with ribbons and beautifully laced
The two little sisters at my door
Came to suprise me with joy on each face
A delicate rosebud they had picked from
Aside they did gently stride
"Come with us, we'll show you more"
Their voices were filled with innocent grace.

Little Girl in Pink
Cute little girl in your pretty frock
and pink satin ribbons on your curly locks.
You came to greet me and show me your gift__
the one that you're wearing
it is a nice fit.
With your pretty white bag
and your pretty white shoes.....
a charming bracelet of pink, white and blue.

A Sight to See!
I see in my garden those little bees
as they go from flower to flower
They're pollinating my plants as I sing
in my sun-room close by.
The butterflies there
they fly in the air
My heart takes wings
at the pleasures I see
They make me want to laugh and sing.
Two Little Feet
Two little feet, ten little toes,
Leave their impressions today.
Soon they will wear two little shoes,
And be running and jumping at play.
Two little feet, too little time,
Before they are walking to school,
Kicking a rock, or skipping a rope,
Wading a puddle or jumping a pool.
Two little feet, One little child,
Will soon go their own way,
But footprints in my mind recall,
They stood here yesterday.
It is Well
In sweet consolation
He stays by my side
He cares for me always and daily resides
The pleasures I've known since I've walked with Him
At their rememberance my heart
He blesses me with His Presence Divine
And suddenly I feel that all is fine!
Dear little bluebird dressed in blue
Sweet little bluebird__ you sing a pretty tune.
I am so blessed to see you close by__
you come to greet me and pleasantly fly.....
Yes, you came today
in your sweet special way.
A Child I Saw
What golden locks were hers
A dress laced in ribbons
and sleeves that ruffled
And dainty feet in those little shoes.
The sun was shining
the skies were blue
Never a day so sweet.
I came home feeling so complete
and in my heart I knew
God blessed me in a special way
to have memories like this__
rememberance of yesteryear.
the boys love you
singing a bright new tune
golden tresses and colorful dresses”
smitten with love for you.
hear them singing in the streets and calling out for you.
even buy boxes of candy
see this is very sweet.
The dusk has little gateways
That lead to pleasant homes
Enveloped in the soft light
Before the darkness comes.
Each home is in a garden
Alight with vivid blooms,
And there are fragrant posies
In all the restful rooms.
They are so cool and quiet,
After the hectic day,
After the crowded hours
That rush us on our way.
They are the little havens
Where we may turn to sit
And rest us in a leisure
The day could not permit.

Sweet Little Bird
In my garden, my nature garden
my companion waits for me.
This little bird, this sweet little bird
he frolics in the air__ then gently rests on me.
He plays in the birdbath and flutters and splashes
then suddenly dashes away__
till the next day, when he greets me again
Yes, truly this is my friend.
