Yesterdays Walk! by Fred M. Lassonde

Yesterdays Walk! by Fred M. Lassonde

As I walked about our friendly City

I went by some beautiful Bushes and Trees

Down a path smelling flowers so pretty

Saw many a creature friend, Birds and Bees

This was during the day my yesterday

Well I walked throughout this peaceful place

Although the Birds talked in their own way

Serene, here things proceed at a pleasant pace

Now I may be biased in my love of home

Yet I am truthful as I write this here poem

To me there is no place like this here place

This lovely place where there is no rat race

Yes yesterday was a wonderful and quiet day

Not much at all going on as I walked along

The Birds and the Bees they were doing their thing

The Bees pollinate flowers and the Birds they do sing

There was one thing I noticed as I concluded my walk

It was getting late and all around there was nary a peep

All was silent as I looked up at the Outdoor Clock

That's when I noticed it was late, so I went home to sleep!
