Premium Member What A Cat Leaves Under The Tree For Santa
It’s Christmas Eve and I must catch,
fish for Santa to fix from scratch.
Surely there’s a fish who will snatch;
fresh worm from batch, fresh worm from batch.

I know he’d love delicious trout,
now, that’s something to shout about;
I hope this water’s not...Read More

For our 30th went back and got her, must be wary

But I did have a choice
So we're back together now and still married

Passengers in England boarded the Mayflower
To cross the Atlantic for the New World.
To escape religious persecution
For worshipping God as they saw fit
With separation of Church and state, God and King.

They suffered hardship that first winter 
Off Plymouth Rock...Read More

By Dawne Zacharias

When the early pioneers landed in 1620
They were weary,
They came to worship the Lord in
The way the scriptures taught.

A Sign hoisted on board the ship said,
"They committed themselves to the Will of God
And resolved to proceed."

A Fishy Tale
One night an octopus said,
Those whelks should be in bed.
Said the herring to the plaice,
Would you please say grace.

"Is that kipper for sale."
There is somethingvery odd,
Repied a bewildered cod.

On the east coast
They will boast tongues
Stress most when pitched.

Each of the town
Will pass down how
Theirs sound in talk.

From New York to
Penn state you will
find new forms said.

Not like those in
Cape Cod being not
Like Maine as same.

They all have flaws

What’s Blue by me?  

Butterfly wings, 
the Blue Moth in flight,
stilettos, suede shoes,

Moonbows and rainbows,

the eyes of your love, 
when he’s laughing at you!

From a distance a lighthouse horn blows
The mist settles in, fishermen do not go 
A beacon light gleams and attracts 
Sights and sounds, from a warning tract.
From a distance, harbor lights in a row
Tides smooth over, ripples are low

Behind my rod
There, resting by the stream as clear water gleams,		
While cauliflower clouds stray ‘neath auburn rays.	
Watching the argent bream splash swiftly upstream		
Where floating leaves sashay as slow ripples sway.	
I beam, for beside me pelicans daydream 		
And my stray dog chases butterflies...Read More

This the story of Gustybot Melly

And when he was finished young Gustybot Melly
