Light and Dark


When it is dark it is light
When it is light it is dark
As light is for day when it is night
It would be dark.

In the dark blue sky when you heard the birds of the night
They would be owls and mice and rats along with cats
When it is dark you are in the light, that's the meaning.
When you wake up at dawn and it is light you are in the dark

It means that you understand in the night better than in the day,
Whatever it is, you can enjoy the whole year round,
From spring to summer to fall to winter
As it is, dazzling December to February,

Then cozy little March to May
And after that, sweaty June to August
And then October to November, okay?
(Have I got it correct?)

Never Give Up

Running about and looking evrywhere,
Looking for the ribbon that was in her hair,
And the kitten, that was under her care,
But she did not find them, not anywhere.

It was time to check the dark rooms where cobwebs hung,
It was hard to breathe with her lung,
But she had to get her kitten and wrung
Herself on it, and that was what she sung.

Nay, nothing did she find,
only a dusty passage to explore,
Maybe her kitten was there,
but when she looked in she saw an apple core,

Had somebody been here,
ouch, her arm was so sore,
She made her way in, and saw a locked, dark door.
She called her kittens name,

but her only answer were lonely echoes filling the air,
She looked at her meat sandwich she wanted to share,
Share with her kitten and then hop everywhere,
But she couldn't, unless she had her kitten,
in her arms and in her care,

The door moved, and then stopped,
Her heart beat faster so an inch away she hopped,
She tried to remember better days, like when she shopped,
She looked for something to distract her but she only saw garlic, chopped.

The door opened, and she heard a cry,
She saw her kitten, no way she could get it, sigh,
She got ready to say to her kitten bye,
But there was no danger, she would not die.

It was just another cat with her kitten,
Who could open doors, and wear a mitten,
Neither of them were bitten,
They were safe and sound and so was her hair ribbon.

Lost

She was lost,
Lost in the dark, dark mist that cost,

Minus six plus four,
It was an unwanted tour!

Her name was a sweet gold,
It was Maryam, freezing cold,

But she made her way home,
Through the foam!

In the Light of the Candle

I lit the candle,
I lit the candle,
And, oh, I did not know what I was going to handle,

In the light of the candle, guess what I saw,
Eyes shining like black pearls, that's what I saw,

In the light of the candle I saw a mare,
And it said to me "Patience is a quality that is becoming rare,"

It turned away,
And walked far away,

Leaving me standing there,
In the light of the candle.

A Dove

The Dove

A dove
A dove there
A dove here
And a dove behind you.

A dove
A dove that goes coo roo
A dove that goes roo coo
A dove that is noisy.

A dove
A dove that lingers in a street
A dove that stays to again meet.
A dove that stays to witness the winter.

A dove
A dove that says "Hello Fie"
A dove that says "Good Bye"
A dove that is always there.

Snow Comes, Smow Melts Poem

Snow covered the ground like a velvet sheet,
As soft as cotton and as cold as frozen meat,

Falling down without a sound,
Snowflakes drop to the ground,

Its a very nice sight,
As the land turns fluffy and white,

But soon the sun came from behind the clouds,
And the snow just becomes water flowing under the ground.

Sometimes you hope the sun is not there,
As the snow melts everywhere.

Spring is a coming

The first daffodils bloom,
The sky looks welcome not gloom,

The birds begin to sing again,
And the farmer gets more from the hen,

The sun is now making its way up high,
You don't have to look out the window and sigh,

The mist fades,
And the as for the birds, in the water they wade,

Spring is a coming,
The garden is a humming,

The flowers are back,
The  sun is back and
Spring is a coming!
