The Convict's Return

Poem By William Topaz McGonagall

The lazy time of spring break
Is here and just in time
Kids and teachers alike
Are more than ready, I find

Relaxing by the water’s edge
Perhaps a waterfall
Dreamy time to ponder
Time to just plain stall

Girls so cute and lovable
With happy spring break smiles
Perhaps a little flirting too
After all, it is a pretty girl’s style

Parks are filled with lush plants
And perhaps you’ll find as well
A menagerie of lovely birds
With spring break stories to tell

Yes, a special time of year comes
When there is a pause to take
A favorite time for many folks
Who truly enjoy spring break!

Lovely poem about spring break. We've got one coming up next monday. The May bank holiday. I can't wait. The only problem is, they are over too soon. Much enjoyed the read Steve

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

3 White Ducks

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
