One Day

Poem By Robert Edgar Burns

I’m going on vacation
One Day!
I don’t know where
And I’m not sure when.
But once I get there
I guess I’ll know then,
But, I’m going on vacation
One Day!

I’m volunteering my help
Today!
No not tomorrow
And I didn’t yesterday.
But, I’m volunteering my help
Today!

I must go to the potty
Each Day!
My guts would burst within
If I tried to hold it in.
So I must go to the potty
Each Day!

I am watching television
Right now!
I have watched it every night
Even when I quash the lights.
I am watching television
Right Now!

I am going on vacation
One Day!
But my volunteering
Gets in the way.
I would miss my T.V. shows,
And we can’t have that you know.
I’ll stay home from vacation
Someday!

Kathie My Love, And I

Like the rising of the morning sun
Across the eastern sky,
Is each new day for love to bloom,
Between KATHIE my love, and I.

The Front Porch Swing!

Sitting on the front porch swing
The two of us feeling high.
Watching horses in the meadow,
My country girl and I.

Masterpiece

I want to write a masterpiece,
And tell the world of you.
I’ll use the sky for parchment,
And it never will be through.

Native Tongue!

My native tongue is African,
Though I am American white.
I took it from his mouth tonight.
It was a cannibals delight!

Had I Never!

If I had never known your name,
I would have loved you just the same.
Had I not gazed into your eyes,
I still would have been tantalized.

Age

I saw the note taped to the easy chair
In the living room of my house.
I got out of bed to retrieve that note
But it was a tissue standing in a kleenex box.
