Nostalgia Poems

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
my garden.......
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 
takes wings
He blesses me with His Presence Divine
And suddenly I feel that all is fine!

Little Bluebird
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.

Sally-Sue, the boys love you
They’re singing a bright new tune
“Her golden tresses and colorful dresses”
They’re smitten with love for you.
I hear them singing in the streets and calling out for you.
They even buy boxes of candy
To see this is very sweet.

Evening Hours
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.

Wishful Longevity

Days of Yesteryear
The pleasures I saw
As I stepped out my door
The May-Poles down the street
I noticed they placed them all in a fleet
And it seemed to me there was more
"We're having a Celebration
Just for the month of May...."

Reflections of my Youth
Oh to be young and free
My hair flowing in the breeze
As I walked among those stately trees
As I strolled along those heavenly shores
As I ventured out of my front door
What wonderful days were these.
Janet Vargas   © April  2012

Carefree Days of my Youth
I like to reminisce
On those glorious days of my youth
A day never missed
I knew such bliss
Hours spent without care
were like fresh air
When the weather was fine
I spent my time
 In adventure  happy and free.
Janet Vargas   © April  2012

Friends Reflections
Valiant by the sea
when we ran young and free
Yes, in youth adorned
we would rise with the dawn
Yes, valiant we would be.

Recipe for Longevity
A year of quality sleep
to give myself that treat
To have a nourishing diet
and be eager to apply it
I'll have some healthy exercise
and try some new clothes out for size
Colors that will give me a lift
to suit me with a flattering fit
Remembering to be gracious
and refrain from being anxious
Mindful to have my rest
in Your Presence I am blessed
These are the things that I will do
to love myself like You want me to.

Hi, Baby Boomers!
I think I will go out for a walk in the Park
"Life be in it"__ I'll play my part
Life is not meant just for work
and endless chores that seem to lurk.

I'd like some refreshment
and less relentment
At the end of the day__
yes, that is the way

I'll go out to the beach
that would be a treat__
to walk by those shores
who could ask for more?

The Conquest of Time
that would be fine
There's things to ENJOY
I will start TODAY!

Loveliest of Trees
Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Easter-tide. 
Now, of my three-score years and ten,
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more. 
And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room,
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.

Fanciful Longevity
I'd be blessed if life were like this
such fantasy a reality__
That each year I would grow 5 years younger
These bonds of age to break asunder
My strength renewed to spring to my feet
To rest at night in perfect sleep__
to me these things would be a treat.
To plan my days and change my ways
Yes, I would be truly in bliss
if life were just like this.

Grandparents Bestow
Grandparents bestow upon their grandchildren
The strength and wisdom that time
And experience have given them.
Grandchildren bless their Grandparents
With a youthful vitality and innocence
That help them stay young at heart forever.
Together they create a chain of love
Linking the past with the future.
The chain may lengthen,
But it will never part...
~Author Unknown~

Child of my child, Heart of my heart
Your smile bridges the years between us
I am young again …
discovering the world through your eyes
You have the time to listen
And I have the time to spend.
Delighted to gaze at familiar loved features…
made new in you again
Through you …I’ll see the future
Through me…you’ll know the past
In the present… we’ll love one another
As long as these moments last

Nan's Special Guests
Last week we went to Nana's place
her table was covered in vivid lace
She said she was saving it for quite some time
and now that we're growing up that will be fine
So now we are her special guests
we learn her etiquette, neatly dressed.

Our Lovely Nan
There's no-one like our lovely Nan
she makes us all feel special
on occasions meals are planned
a place is set for all her fans
Her stories are so plentiful
ones of yesteryear and all.
