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 Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
