Sunday Afternoon Outing

Poem By Marilyn Lott

Dressed in their Sunday finest
Right after church one afternoon
The family took a little stroll
And it couldn’t have been too soon

For it was a wintry day, my friend
And the snow had been falling hard
It stacked up during church service
And piled up high in the yard

Don’t you love old photographs?
They take you back so far
Take you back before you were born
Old-styled clothes and great old cars

Picnics with the family then
Right out by a pretty lake
I’m so glad I have these photos
That folks let somebody take

Look at that old buggy and horse
So many old stories they bring
Oh, I enjoy seeing those sights
Of Sunday afternoon outings!

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

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

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
