FLOWERS ON A SUNDAY:.......

This is a true account of when 
I resided in N. Ireland:
This is my 600th poem on this blog: 
FLOWERS ON A SUNDAY:
It was in depth of winter,
Black ice on the ground.
I had to go to the shops,
Not a soul was around.

I pulled my scarf around my neck,
To keep the coldness out.
Gloves on my hands,
Golly, this is what winter is all about.

I gingerly walked down the lane,
A song going through my head.
It was a happy song.
I'd been singing since getting out of bed.

It was then that I saw it.
I could hardly believe my eyes.
It brightened up a winter's day,
Oh! what a lovely surpise.

There in all it's beauty,
Was some golden daffodills.
Blooming in a window box,
On someone's window sill.

I stood there in the coldness.
I just wanted to stay.
I surveyed the miracle,
Those flowers on a Sunday.

WEEK-END JOY:

WEEK-END JOY:
As the above picture say,
Have a "Purrfect Week-end".
May happiness and good weather,
Be yours from beginning to end.
 
Here it's very warm
Changeable one may say.
One minute it's raining,
Next the sun come out to play.
 
Me? I may take a stroll
In between showers that's the plan.
Then return home to chill out,
Not for me today a suntan.
 
Do have a wonderful week-end.
Whatever you may do.
Week-ends are precious,
That's my wish for you.
 
YVONNE.

HELLO TO FRIDAY:

HELLO TO FRIDAY:
Greeting Friday with open arms,
Out of the windows problems of the week go.
Although on the whole,
I have some good memories to show.

I managed to get up to date
With household tasks,
Had time to sit and read for a while,
Memories of that will last.

Also I got to the hairdressers,
For a much needed hair cut and chat.
It's the sort of thing we women love.
Well? what''s wrong with that?

Looking forward to the week-end.
Time to utterly relax.
Playing some suitable music.
A sure remedy that's a fact.

I sincerely hope your Friday
Will be fun, as to the week-end you go.
Making more happy memories,
That in your heart will glow. 

HAPPY FRIDAY:

AN EARLY AUTUMN?

AN EARLY AUTUMN?
The rain poured heavily
Throughout the night.
Today I noticed leaves on the ground.
Does this surely mean Autumn is in sight?

What happened to my dreams of summer?
Where have they gone indeed
As I stood and winessed the rain
Feeding the flowers....also weeds.

I had such high hopes for the summer,
Perhaps I sat around too long.
I listened to the dawn chorus,
As they greeted another day with a song.

A stray cat came into sight,
Not bothered by the rain.
Found something to eat I presume
As it wondered on  it's way again.

Have you realised your dreams of summer?
Or like mine let them slip pass.
Each day is for living.....I must remember,
And each one better than the last.

THAT'S ALL I ASK OF YOU:

With the continued deadlock in my
family life I re-write a blast from the past:
THAT'S ALL I ASK OF YOU:
Idon't care for riches, diamonds, silver or gold.
Or to reside in a palace as they're often very cold.
You see my life's requirements are very, very few.
Just think of me once in a while, that's all i ask of you.

I don't need a flash car to get me from here to there.
I can use "Shank's Ponies" to get me some fresh air.
I love to smell the flowers that herald the coming of spring.
All I ask of you is sometimes just give me a ring.

I don't need servants to be at my beck and call.
The mundane things around the house I will do them all.
I'll clean the carpets thoroughly, and the windows too.
Please pay me a visit one day, that's all I ask of you.

I don't take life or things for granted....not anymore.
Life is for living of that I'm very sure.
Count your blessing daily, I'm sure you've quite a few.
Wear a smile upon your face, that all I ask of you.

Be motivated your goals to achieve,
Don't be down in the mouth and wear your heart on your sleeve.
Hold your head up high and to yourself be true.
That my dear three children is all I ask of you.

Please don't hold grudges as you travel along life's way.
One never knows if you require help on some future day.
Treat others as you wish to be treated too.
Let sunshine into your life, that's all I ask of you.

Finally comes respect and love
That comes with the experience of life.
From the moment of birth until you become husband or wife.
Let your own children learn these things all their lives through.
To respect and love their parents, that's all I ask of you.

A NEW WEEK.....AGAIN:

A NEW WEEK.....AGAIN:
Yet again we embarge
On another new week.
Once again peace and contentment
Is all that I seek.
 
Last week was an up and downer,
That I won't deny.
What with health and family issues,
Many tears I did cry.
 
But that has to be forgotten,
As this new week begins.
As frowners always loses
It's the smilers that always wins.
 
May your week be happy,
Let the sun shine on you.
Knowing whatever happens.
You can see it through.
 
HAPPY WEEK:

GOOD BYE GLEN:

GOOD BYE GLEN:
It is with great sadness I heard of 
The passing of Glen Campbell, one of music's greats.
He will be sadly missed ,
I can quite categorically state.

His long career brought pleasure
To millions throughout the land.
But he's left behind a legacy of songs,
That for future generations will withstand.

I think my favourite must be "Show A Little Kindness",
The words I can so relate to.
To act upon these words,
As life's journey you go through.

 I have many of his songs,
Collected over the years.
Good bye to you dear Glen.
You brought happiness and cheer.

R.I.P GLEN:
