After reading about a half dozen essays about kidnappers, killers, and stalkers, my 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Gmahling, finally told me to try something a bit lighter...poetry...
So here it goes...
Once upon a May day
In the town of Arroyo Grande
We passed the time
Digging in the dirt and drinking wine
We raised an artichoke and some berries too
Had a lovely visit with Helya and of course a Moscow Mule
Work was hectic and the heat so intense
But the snap peas popped and pink peonies made me dance
I am stylin' with my anniversary rollerblades
Wish I took them to Lake Havasu on memorial day
Cousin Heather graduated from high school, a wonderful night
Celebrating by the fire with good 'ol grandpa and coors light
In the tiny town of cloudy Carmel
Two little fairies explored and ate well
We loved, laughed, and drove for many miles
It was a great month, but poetry isn't really my style.
