Wander Lust



When moving to a new location Love to survey the land Finding the nearest gas emporiums A Starbucks close at hand McDonald's which I frequent often Food stores with all the best deals Office supplies, lumber yards Great restaurants for yummy meals Soon we'll know where everything is But exploring is half the fun Discovering stores once far away Now are just a very short run It helps to eliminate those illegal u-turns Which are really hard on the wallet Soon we'll know where everything is Reducing our petrol wallop Moved quite a number of times in life Find it exciting and fun You'd think at the age of seventy-eight My wander lust would all be done © Jack Ellison 2013

    I hope for the day to share a box of 20 piece chicken nuggets with you. Well, what I really mean, 20 piece box EACH. ;-) Moving is exciting in of itself. I was all smiles throughout this enjoyable read!

    The poem is amazing. I once wrote this; TO PUT ON THE HAT OF WANDERLUST/ IS TO ENHERIT ROADS AND WEALTH OF DUST! & TO KNOW OUTSIDE YOUR WALL/ IS NEXT TO KNOWING ALL! Wonderful poem. JM

    Living here is like exploring a new place to live... Something always going on... We rebuild almost daily... The Trolls burnd up the porch with Caroling candles last year... Dragon burned the roof while helping us take a tree limb off of it... Talk about a hot foot!...Bad Dragon!... Not to mention the Church Steeple and Imax screen. Thank Goodness the Rapid Response Turtle Team (our safety guru's) are there to lend a helping hand... and the Trolls are becoming great carpenters, too... LOL

    You my friend: An eternal adolescent, never old, never tired, never bored, just wandering around as a philosopher of old! Enjoyed it very much my good friend, Jack!

    No, never lose the wander lust, that keeps you up and running! I hope you really enjoy your new residence, I knew you had moved a few months ago but I believe I forgot to ask if you liked where you live now? I loved reading this delightful poem here my friend! Thank you for bringing the lighter side to things(though you don't always bring the lighter side, just a lot of the time you do)! What a wonderful piece, Great Work!!
