The Quilt With The Hidden Treasure

I got a letter from a very old friend
She said my grandma's life has come to an end
My grandma lived so many miles and states away
I tried to get her to move, she said it's here I'll stay


There was a time the farm was pretty nice
In my...

The Cat On The Road

It seems I have been dumped off in the middle of the night          
Alone on this road I'm wondering what will be my plight
Could it have been that I scratch up the stair railing      
I noticed lately the misters affection for me was failing...

Cooked Goose

You know the old saying your goose is cooked
Whenever I hear that I really get shooked
I hear there's some truth to that nasty old saying

Fall is the most beautiful time of the year
The October air is crisp and remarkably clear

Right in there front yard,...

September and October

The September days can get very hot

The very next day you wake up to a chill
Is that really frost on your windowsill
Get...

The Cat in The Mist

The evening sky’s darken, falling slowly to the ground,
Soft mist is filling the air with a whispering sound.
A dim light from a lantern exposes something down below,
It’s a sleek black cat with a shiny coat moving very slow.

I’ve never seen...

My April Cat

It’s been a long cold winter,

Inside this house I sat.

I’m told that’s what cats do,

Sit around and get fat.


I want to go out now and run,

But every day there is no sun,

I hear Missy say April showers,

Will bring butterflies...

Morning Glories

Morning glories are the easiest flowers to grow

Sometimes they show up when you didn’t even sow

Men never take notice when the yard they mow

Cutting off all of them and they didn’t even know


They ask you for nothing needing very...
