The Letter

theletter

The pen upon the table laid
The message not to be delayed
The words must be said
They must be read
But her hands would not be obeyed

The paper upon the table laid
The message must be conveyed
No future ahead
Love for him dead
Not sorry that she had strayed

* * * * * * * *

The opened mail upon the table laid
Now she was the one betrayed
She bowed her head
Into her room fled
Her tears now displayed

Somebody is two-timing somebody here and in turn getting two-timed.  

Lady’s Laid-back Limerick

Outdoor Cafe

An outdoor cafe oh how chic Behind my menu I'll peak At all the elite  I'll be quite discreet And do it all again next week

An outdoor cafe oh how chic
Behind my menu I’ll peek
At all the elite
I’ll be quite discreet
And do it all again next week

Lady’s Lousy Limerick

Geek
limerick-5

Through every file cabinet he did seek
He did it ten times every week
He looked all around it
And finally found it
A certificate proving he’s a geek

Lady’s Likely Limerick

Handy Man

handy man

Party successful – hero cited
Treats delicious – all delighted
Handy man with a broom
All dismal and gloom
Complaining because not invited

Lady’s Lowdown Limerick

Eight to Five

cat

After working all day eight to five
It’s a wonder I’m still alive
In this chair I will sit
To rest just a bit
And hope I soon shall revive

Lady’s Lame Limerick

Shopping
shopping

On a shopping trip I did embark
Spending hubby’s money what a lark
For dresses designed
Now I hope I can find
My new car where did I park

 

Lady’s Logical Limerick

Duck
duck

A duck set out in his boat
As he rowed he said and I quote
“It’s a bit confusin’
Why these oars I’m usin’
I don’t need them to stay afloat”

 

Comments

Thank you for the visits, likes and comments.  I read and appreciated them all.    I made some random Word Clouds using some of the comments. I hope you find something you wrote in the cloud.

One commenter asked how many posts are in my Draft Folder.   I still have some stale ones left from last year and will be posting those to clean out the folder.   But no new ideas for the future.

NaPoMo ~ Zing Went the Strings of My Heart

Meme’s strings have zinged
Yet still she plays and plays
Sits and strums her uke
Like in the good old days

She’s never one to miss
A chance to play a tune
Whatever whenever and forever
You will always hear her croonzingwentthestrings2

Dear when you smiled at me
I heard a melody
It haunted me from the start
Something in side of me
Started a symphony
Zing went the strings of my heart

’Twas like a breath of spring
I heard a robin sing
About a nest set apart
All nature seemed to be
In perfect harmony
Zing went the strings of my heart

Your eyes made skies blue again
What else could I do again
Keep repeating through again
I love you love you

I still recall the thrill
I guess I always will
I hope ’twill never depart
All nature seemed to be
In perfect harmony
Zing went the strings of my heart

NaPoMo ~ You and the Night and the Music


We went for a night of dancing
To the same club where we met
The same band was playing
Our song with the same clarinet

We sat down at the same old table
With the same old cloth me thinks
And the same old tired waiter
Served the same old watered down drinks

We danced the same old two-step
You stepped on my same old toes
We heard the same old singer
And watched the same old shows

We left the same old tip
Hailed the same old taxi cabs
Argued all the way back home
‘Cause we’re married to the same old crabs


youandthenight1a

You and the night and the music
Fill me with flaming desire
Setting my being completely on fire
You and the night and the music
Thrill me but will we be one
After the night and the music are done

Until the pale light of dawning and daylight
Our hearts will be throbbing guitars
Morning may come without warning
And take away the stars
If we must live for the moment
Love till the moment is through
After the night and the music die
Will I have you

NaPoMo ~ eXodus

This land is mine said a creature
Crawling out from the sea
No way said another
Belongs not to you but to me

This land is mine said the snail
Its house upon its back
That’s not true said the duck
As he gave a quack quack quack

This land is mine said the ladybug
Her red wings full of dots
You are wrong said the grasshopper
To decide we must draw lots

This land is mine said the aardvark
As he ate his lunch of ants
You are mistaken said the grasses
And all the flowering plants

This land is mine said the hippo
Wallowing in slimy mud
You are in error said the dove
It’s my reward from Noah’s flood

This land is mine said the lion
You know that I am king
Sorry said the bear
That don’t mean a thing

And so it goes forever
Forever and forever more
To decide whose land it is
We need to have a war

exodusameba

This land is mine
God gave this land to me
This brave and ancient land to me
And when the morning sun reveals
Her hills and plains
Then I see a land where children can run free

So take my hand
And walk this land with me
And walk this golden land with me
Though I am just a man
When you are by my side
With the help of God I know I can be strong

To make this land our home
If I must fight
I’ll fight to make this land our own
Until I die this land is mine

NaPoMo ~ When the Red Red Robin

redrobin

Little bird fly high for me
Little bird please spy for me
Tell me will my love return

Little bird don’t cry for me
Little bird don’t sigh for me
For his love I do so yearn

Little bird say goodbye for me
Little bird dry my eye for me
When will I ever learn

NaPoMo ~ Vaya Con Dios

When friends start on a journey
You must wish them God Speed
And pray that their holy one
Will give them all they need

But a little word of caution
It is best to ask before
Which of ten thousand gods
Is the one that they adore

vayacondios


Now the Hacienda’s dark the town is sleeping
Now the time has come to part the time for weeping


Vaya con dios my darling
May God be with you my love


Now the village mission bells are softly ringing
If you listen with your heart you’ll hear them singing


Vaya con dios my darling
May God be with you my love


Wherever you may be I’ll be beside you
Although you’re many million dreams away


Each night I’ll say a prayer a prayer to guide you
To hasten every lonely hour of every lonely day


Now the dawn is breaking through a gray tomorrow
But the memories we share are there to borrow


Vaya con dios my darling
May God be with you my love

NaPoMo ~ Unchained Melody

Reined in repressed restrained
I ever will remain
Confined cuffed and chained
I never will complain

NaPoMo ~ Tennessee Waltz

I love to do the cha-cha
The tango and bunny hop
Trip the light fantastic
Jitterbugging I’ll never stop

Swing and sway with Sammy Kaye
From the jive I won’t abstain
But never ever in this life
Will I dance a waltz again

I can shimmy like my sister Kate
It really takes no brain
But if you ask me to dance a Waltz
I’ll be compelled to refrain

I can boogie-woogie all the night
You may call me a bit vain
But when a waltz begins to play
I really must complain

tennesseewaltz

I was dancing with my darling
To the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancing
My friend stole my sweetheart from me

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes I lost my little darling
The night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz
