My Little Garden Helper


You were just a little girl
With sparkling eyes and hair a curl
As if it were just yesterday
You’d brightened my life in many a way

I did not recognize you standing there
A young woman who looked so fair
I had to ask one just who you were
And they replied, “that’s Al over there”

I used to call you ‘Alley Cat’
To tease you for this and that
But now that you are all grown up
I haven’t a clue as to how I address you
So I guess Alison will have to do

A beautiful lady The Good Lord has made
May His kindness in you never ever fade





Your Uncle

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
