Guess Who

~It's a Beautiful Day~

Under every star, 
A smile waltz-like no other
Once a simple cherry blossom girl, 
enjoying puppets and lullabies.
Sitting in front of the screen
Anxiously waiting for him to come in
through the front door, whistling a song, 
trading a suit jacket, for a zippered sweater;
made with love. ---My day just got better---

   ***It's a beautiful day***
In a charming little town square 
A servant, serving a friendly atmosphere
Welcome to the land of make-believe, 
where all my friends are real.
Here comes the speedy delivery 
Mr. McFeely and his letters.
Prancing puppet skin in love with
Beautiful Lady Aberlin.
Henrietta, a mighty and feisty pussycat
My favorite strings are the king and queen
Before the show ends, Trolley's a friend
tooting around from make-believe to reality.
   ***It's was a beautiful day***
Oh the innocence of my childhood, 
       My neighborhood is gone

My grand kids always thought him a bit scary. Couldn't get them to watch for some reason. Oh well, my time was Howdy Doody. Now that was quality entertainment:) Great read! Thank you.

Oh I forget which of my children watched Mr Rogers. What I remember most are his sweaters, and one program... "There's never any trouble here in Bubble Land, Bubble Land, Bubble land". Perhaps that neighbourhood is gone for you, but you've grown up and found better.:) Keep well, Mikki

Wow! That was simply an amazing read and i beg the difference in regards to your neighborhood being gone, it's gone and most certainly not your childhood, ...your poetry immortalized them for all times

Hi Linda, memories always caress the mind, some of joy, some of sorrow. All make us a part of who we are. So much can last forever in our memory. I did Love this look into your childhood. As always Linda, it is well written and shows such joy and Love. Your pen does run gold. Your words seem to flow so easily. This is a definite seven and into my faves. Two of the four homes i have lived in in my life are gone now. I have my memories though....MIKE.
