Look Who the Wind Blew In
We had a visitor this past night.
One whom we have not seen for awhile.
Not that he's been missed...
his company brings us duress!
For when he comes to visit...
he knows not when to leave!
His humor is careless
His spirit is frayed...
the longer he stays,
the more we are peeved!
He stays too long he goes way too far,
he must want to live here, here on this farm!
He has no worries nor cares, doesn't give a hoot about our cost...
I wish someone would bury that old man, Jack Frost!!
Everything on the farm grew white whiskers overnight!
Frosty days and cold nights....
It's funny how things happen some times...
I'm sitting here making up this quirky little poem as I go, and suddenly
I'm remembering my Dad (he was great at making up poems)
and how he would help me with those High School poetry assignments
(I was terrible at it and still am)
we would laugh and laugh at the funny lines he could come up with.
Now here I sit, tears in my eyes, overwhelmed with happy memories
and it dawns on me...the date...November 20th
Mom and Dad's anniversary!
I swear sometimes Dad is still looking over my shoulder helping me with my homework!
My Dad's been gone a long time already, but they did get to
spend 30 wonderful years together.
Their's was a love that's lasted through the ages.
Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!
Today I'm thankful for a wedding day in November 1951 and lasting love!
