Governor’s Mansion

Poem By Marilyn Lott

The doors were open for us again
At Oklahoma’s governor’s mansion
Built with plenty of wonderful rooms
With such a beautiful expansion

Our governor’s wife met us
With such warm hospitality
Because her home was open
For the public all to see

The formal dining room was lovely
Designed so creatively
With a gorgeous chandelier
That sparkled so graciously

The artwork was impressive
That found a home within the folds
Of the beautiful governor’s mansion
Such a joy they were to behold

The daughter of the governor
Had a charming place to sleep
A room that any girl would want
It’s a room I’m sure she’d love to keep

Edna looked just beautiful too
She was all dressed up in red
I’ll bet she’d like to live here also
And could sleep upon this bed

It was a special time for all of us
And I’m sure we’ll be back one day
We thanked our gracious hostess
And then we were on our way!

A Child’s Mind

The world is wide with wonder
For everything is new
A child’s mind is like a sponge
Or like a flower sipping morning dew

Three ducks pecked around
In a garden one warm day
They wore beautiful coats
Of white feathers to display

A Common Man

He works so hard every day
Doing pretty much what he’s told
The days slowly turn into years
As his life carefully unfolds

A Chat With The Lord

Sometimes I kind of feel sad and bored
So I decide to have a little chat with the Lord
I tell Him just what has been bothering me
I know He understands and He will see

He is a beautiful kitty cat
Frank is his name
And around the barnyard
He has risen to fame

A Bologna Sandwich?

I love a hamburger that is cooked just right
Sliced tomato, onion and a pickle too
A sandwich of chicken or turkey is nice
So many choices that we can pursue
