Poetry Month, Day 28--Good Day

Bible study, lunch with friend.

Scrabble with my aunt.

Good day, despite rain and cold.


As poetry month winds down, it is getting harder to make up poems about nothing in particular. Bible study was visitors day. One of my friends came to check us out. Then afterward, we had a great chatty lunch together. She made the same journey I am making to the Catholic Church. We had a great visit together.

Later, I visited my 93 year old aunt. We played a rousing game of Scrabble. She beat me by 100 points. Next time, we better try Yahtzee. I may have a better chance of winning.

Poetry Month, Day 27--Grammy Time

When Wednesday rolls around each week

This Grammy spirits start to peak.

It's Grammy time, as I spend all day

With my Little Farmer. Yes, all day!

The day resounds with rumbley noises

With trucks and tractors. Boys will be boys's.

On the run the whole day long.

Ending with Grammy hugs, so strong.

I do believe little boys are born knowing how to make tractor and truck noise. I know Little Farmer sure does.

Poetry Month, Day 26--Rainy Night

Rain, rain in the night,

Thunder booms with all its might.

Thankfully the power stayed on.

The rain in puddles sunk in the ground,

The plants were dripping all around.

And thankfully the power stayed on.

The storm was brief but full of fury.

It blew through in a great hurry,

And thankfully the power stayed on.

Poetry Month, Day 25--Still Knitting

The first repeat of the pattern is done,

A simple chart, such knitting fun!

Two, three and four are yet to knit

And then an edging, lickety split.

All to finish by end of June.

When it will sail off under the Alaskan moon

While I remain, in the heat, to swoon.


The knitting is going well, as time allows. I have been reading a lot, with the last couple lessons for this year's Bible study, and reading for my Catholic studies. But, I have managed to finish this repeat, and soon the studying will be much less.

Which means the knitting can be much more.

Poetry Month, Day 24---Re-Run

I was looking back at last year's poems. You can find them by browsing April 2015 in the sidebar. This little ditty is no less appropriate now than it was last year.

Stash? What Stash?

A chubby old lady with knitting

Was asked, "Do you think that it's fitting?

To have enough yarn

To cover a barn?"

She replied "There is nothing that I am admitting."


This is especially fitting, seeing that I recently took advantage of my birthday discount to add to the aforementioned stash.
