Marilyn Lott Poems
A Child’s Mind
The world is wide with wonder
For everything is new
A child’s mind is like a sponge
Or like a flower sipping morning dew
I love to watch them question
Every single thing
You never know what is next
And what each day will bring
Perhaps we too should open
Our minds deliciously
And see the world as a child does
How exciting life would be!
Chicken 'N Dumplings
On a cold day you want something warm
I know I do, and for that reason I cooked
Chicken ‘n dumplings for dinner
I can show you just how they looked.
The flavors were added so carefully
I slowly cooked chicken, veggies and then
Dropped dumplings into the hot broth
Oh yes, it was just the perfect blend.
