Knowin how to keep em

Oh don't think that I ain't seein'
As you roll those purty eyes,'
And my man stands there a gawkin'
Like he'd won some sort of prize.

My ma taught me how to keep em
And to cut you down to size.
For there ain't no man worth havin'
Can resist my apple pies.

Ah, pies cooked using your recipe must be delicious, Joyce! You gave me quite a giggle. There is one poem of the day selected daily and you find it by clicking on "Poem of the Day," which is located on the top banner of each page. (It's also were you see "blogs" and "contests." So glad you were given this honor! Love, Carolyn

Joyce, when you read this comment, look up all the way on the upper left corner of this computer page in the navy blue section, you will see Poem of the Day in white letters. Click on it and you will see your poem on the POTD page. Hope this helps. And congrats again. Hugs, Sandra
