Three years and five months old to the day --
almost to the hour and minute.
She patted my arm, then hugged it.
She said, "I will take care of you".
We were sitting together, outside,
making Playdoh figures.
A beautiful summer day
made immeasurably more beautiful.

Girls’ Night Out

Two married women heard of a new wine bar
And wondered what they would find.
Asked one of the other, “Do you feel forlorn,
For leaving our husbands behind?”

Said the other, “Perish the thought.
My husband is hardly a guy I miss.
I left him, tonight, without a backward glance,
Let alone a goodbye kiss.

Now, marriage is all well and good,
And the children are wonderfully fine.
But when it comes to husbands,
After fifteen years, I very much prefer wine.”

There once was a young lady named Ansche
Who a french fry on the train did munch.
The policeman, who put her in cuffs,
Well deserved the public's rebuffs.
But is it unconstitutional,
Or even very unusual,
For a cop's brains to be
out to lunch?
It's not as hard as you think,
And you don't need to drink,
To pen a poetical line.
Just give it some thought,
And also learn to emote,
And soon you'll be rhyming just fine.
