Very nicely done, Jennifer. It is a limerick many will not understand any more, sadly.

But you do and a lovely reply thank you Caren - Joseph is not paid enough attention in the Bible, although I think I read he was sainted. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

Your poem was great and I'm certain you will get more - Joseph is a character in the Bible who takes a back seat and I loven him for this. Hugs and kisses Panagiota, jennifer.

Hi Jennifer: In the days where promiscuity was a death sentence, Joseph was a hero that hardly mentioned. Great poem!

Hi Ralph, You are so right - Joseph must have felt some spiritual presence and must have loved Mary a lot, thanks for a wonderful comment - hugs Jennifer.

Thank you my dear Anne-Lise - Joseph is not remembered as often as Mother Mary so, thought I would dedicate a poem to Him, Jesus's earthly father! Thank you for your kind comment - hugs and blessings, Jenny.

Thankfully the sadness only lasted 3 days. It is a pretty incredible story. Thanks for your visit Jennifer.

Yes Richard, you are so right - 3 heartfelt days during which we recall the passion and suffering of Christ - often, we remember them between also. A great pleasures Richard, enjoy reading your poems. Hugs, Jennifer.
