Special Peony

Poem By Marilyn Lott

This peony was special when
Sister Philomena one day
Picked up bare bulbs and said
"If you want them I'll give them away."

We were at the gardens of the convent
Strolling around in summertime
Nothing made me happier because
It was a wonderful and special find.

This has been many years ago now
Each summer when they bloom
I smile at their gorgeous beauty
I will always give them plenty of room.

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

Doing pretty much what he’s told
The days slowly turn into years
As his life carefully unfolds

So I decide to have a little chat with the Lord

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
