A FREE LAZY DAY

It started so easy - it began very well -
We lazed over breakfast - we heard the doorbell -
And there stood our nephew - with a huge grin -
So what could we do! We invited him in!
He stayed for an hour - but left with a spring -
So happy to help - and then the phone did ring!
It was my sweet sister - driving up from Dover.
She would love a tea stop and maybe stay over.
I hurriedly went to make the bed and more -
When the silence was shattered by the banging on the door.
And there stood my neighbour - a bowl in hand -
She’s run out of sugar - you understand -
‘Come in ‘ I offered a chair by the fire -
And she stayed all afternoon - up to five -
I sat down at last, round about eight.
If this is what they call a lazy day -
Then it’s all a mistake!

MAY

The first of May is special -
The Spring has now begun -
The birds have made sweet nestings -
The blackbird he has sung!
The days are lighter - stronger -
The bees they buzz and dart -
The sunshine lingers longer -
For Summer’s made a start!
Though blossoms weep and fall down -
Its leaves a fruit in green -
Apples red - and nuts of brown -
A better sight not seen.
And the days are filled with song -
The trees with cloaks of green -
The crickets drone the firefly air
A true romantic scene.
May is such a wonder month -
When hope and growth are born -
When lambs and pups - all sorts of stuff -
Wander needlessly through the corn -
So let’s rejoice and give thanks -
We can see life this way -
And look forward as we should
To the first of May..

EASTER EGGS

Pretty foil - silver and gold -
Chocolate treasure in its hold -
Rabbits - chicks - flowers blue -
All attractive to show you -
It is Easter!
Daffodils and primroses sweet -
Lovely chocolate to eat.
And just the satin feel on form -
Will make your blood rush in a storm -
It is Easter!
But do we know why an egg to save -
Was it just about a rocky cave!
When a saviour gave his life -
To end man’s worries and strife -
For it is Easter!
Do we relate this story bold -
To all youngsters - young and old -
Or talk about the chocolate sweet
That all young people love to eat -
For it is Easter!

I intended to write you a poem
But as for the words? I don't know 'em
So you'll have to make do,
With this point of view -
Happy Anniversary !

All my love - Bob
