Christmas Lights Poem


πŸŽ„Christmas LightsπŸŽ„

Christmas stars shine on high,
Golden stars in the wint’ry sky;
Christmas candles in windows brightΒ 
Send s greeting into the night;

While in our hearts the Christmas flame,
Glows with a love like his who came,
The infant Christ of lowly birth,
To bring good will and peace to earth.

Happy Birthday, Mickey Mouse!

Happy National Mickey Mouse Day!


Mickey Mouse in Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Walt Disney World (2011)

Your smile is infectious
Your innocence is contagious
Your charms are magical
Every word you say is special
Your actions are super cute
They lift our spirits like a parachute
You touch our lives in a special way
Wish you a very happy 89th Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Mickey Mouse!

November …


Japanese maple leaves in the Fort Worth Japanese Garden


November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And Earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.

Happy Halloween Eve!


There was a little witch
who kept her little bat
on the teeny, tiny tip
of her pointy, little hat.

She knocked on many doors
and cackled, β€œTrick-or-treats!”
while little bat held out his wings
and gathered tasty sweets.

They shared a midnight feast
beside the Boo Lagoon,
then flew on home to dream sweet dreams
beneath a candy moon.

Song of The Witches


Ceramic gourd in our frontyard garden

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon’s blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.


Happy Birthday, Little Princess!

Our Princess

She is our princess we must confess,

she laughs and plays and makes a mess.

She giggles a lot and tickles us pink,

she can get into trouble in a single blink.

She runs and sings and twirls around,

but when she gets mad she stomps the ground.

She is our princess we have confessed,

good and bad we know we’re blessed.
