The Solar Eclipse

Across the sky the Sun could see
The Moon approach, with nervous glee
A longtime coming, an empirical fact
Ninety-Nine years to be exact

The Sun stood ready, her corona ablaze
Moments away from a stellar phase
Not a crescent or harvest or even a full
She wondered about gravitational pull

Now almost upon her, the Moon had a smile
“Hello old friend, It’s been a while.
I’m just passing through” His face was blotching
“Let’s make it quick, the world is watching”

Halfway through his celestial arc
A slow approach as the sky went dark
He braced himself and pursed his lips
And just like that came the solar eclipse!

The Flora and The Fauna

Said the fauna to the flora, upon the forest floor
“Which tree is the tallest, is it the Sycamore?”
The Tulip tree was listening and answered “it is me”
To which the Pine responded “Can neither of you see?"
"When it comes to being tall clearly I am very!”
“I’m not so sure, you sappy bore”, chimed the nearby Cherry.
“Such crowing from my forest friends and foolish paranoia”
“It is I, without a doubt!” Exclaimed the great Sequoia
“Nonsense!” said a gnarly tree “Till now I have not spoke"
"The grandest tree, for all to see Is me the Mighty Oak!"
The forest filled with endless boasts as the night came creeping
The stately Spruce called for a truce, the willow tree was weeping.
Said the Flora to the Fauna as the day departed,
“Happy now my mossy friend, just look at what you started!”

Please do not turn off the light

Please do not turn off the light
I’m thinking that perhaps you might
Just leave it on so I can see
Although it’s really not for me

It’s hard to see when it is dark
And I don’t want the dog to bark
So leave it on so he can see
And that will be ok with me 

Then after I have counted sheep
And when at last I’m fast asleep
Turn off my light before you go
And if it’s dark, I will not know.

The Rock

She sat on the rocks looking out at the water
The sun reached across and she smiled as it caught her
She picked up a pebble that stood out in the sand
And fingered it lightly as it lay in her hand
It was daring like him to sparkle so brightly
She stared at it long then held it tightly
Then suddenly it cut her, it cut her fast
The cut had hurt, the hurt would last
She stared at the water as the sky went dim
Then threw in the rock for the rock was like him.

The Zoo

On a warm Saturday I went to the zoo
To see the animals there
To just stop by and stand in awe
And yes, politely stare.
I was surprised at what would be
They looked right back and spoke to me... 

The Ostrich was the first to speak
And asked me why I had no beak
The zebra did have many gripes,
He asked me why I had no stripes
Right next-door were chimpanzees
They asked me if I swung from trees?
The Hippo gave a grumbling snort
A tall giraffe said I was short
The grizzly bears asked me for honey
A leopard said my spots were funny
The Hyenas didn’t have much to say
They laughed at me and ran away
The Cobra tried his best to charm
The gator said he liked my arm
The Elephant ate some corn and husk
And tried to poke me with his tusk!
I’ll just find something else to do
I will not go back to the Zoo!

Rub-a-dub dub

Rub-a-dub-dub
Three men in a tub
What were they doing there?
A grout guy, a plumber
Not sure who was dumber
The third guy to open the beer!

The Breakfast Pig

If you give a pig a pancake
In hopes that he will cheer-up
Don’t forget the butter
And lots of maple syrup
You can offer him some toast
A knife, a spoon and fork
But please don't offer bacon
Because pigs will not eat pork!

Why the Dish Ran Away With The Spoon


Wee Willie Winkie met up with Tom Sprat
To try to find the crooked cat
They employed the help of three blind mice
But then decided that wasn’t nice
So they left the mice with Ol’ King Cole
Who ate curds and whey out of a bowl
That he took from Miss Muffet when she ran away
From the little spider that ruined her day
They went down Drury Lane where they saw the Red Hen
Being questioned by all the Kings Men
About bells and cockles in neat little rows
And who might have taken the emperors clothes
She quickly blamed the Duke of York
Who supposedly took the knife and fork
Just before the cow jumped over the moon
Which is why the dish ran away with the spoon.

ICE

The iceman was coming, t’was ice that I smelt
Another ice storm, was about to be dealt
More ice to be salted
And more ice to melt
I’m no fan of ice, and that’s how I felt.

Man in Coffee Shop

A man came into the coffee shop
He sat there all alone 
Ordered just a cup of joe
He had no telephone
He seemed content and even nice
But had not one electronic device
No computer or Laptop or even a book
I think he might be some sort of crook
Clearly he’s creepy or maybe a rat
Because after all, who does that?
