Belle Wassermeister Poems

My name is Linda Bella;
my father calls me Belle.
I used to be his little girl,
but how my size did swell!

Fifteen means one, and we've begun.
Thirty means two; how's that strike you?
Forty means three; you still with me?

Poor Mary, my neighbor.
She cries all the time
because her husband,
John, just passed away.

We walked along the dusty trail,
no shoes upon our feet.

Hot summer day.

I have tried to think what I should do,
and have thought many hours, it is true.
I have searched a great deal
from my head to my heel,

What's a flat-chested girl supposed to do
when she wants to look good
for the senior prom?

Mah Ham
is who I am.
I like this name because
it is palindromic, like me.

I want to stay forever, but I can't;
to this old world we all must bid goodbye.
It does no good to sit and rave and rant,
nor try to understand the reason why.

Mona Lisa was attacked last week,
a matter of extreme disgrace.
She couldn't even turn the other cheek
when a man smeared cream cake on her face.

If I should not survive
my upcoming brain surgery,
I need to let my wishes known
as to the disposition

She called for help today,
but didn't use the phone.
Did not have much to say,
for she was all alone.

My friend is lonely as can be,
and I am lonely, too.
If she could come and visit me,
she wouldn't be so blue.

Food is NOT always free
if you grab it from a tree.
If the tree belongs to me,
you have stolen it, you see.

I never had a chance.

My mother was fifteen years old
when she found out she was pregnant.

Friends can become better friends;
this fact you can discover,
and with luck a better friend
can become your lover.

I saw a red-winged blackbird yesterday,
something I used to see
almost every day
back when I was a kid.

What one approves, another scorns,
and thus his nature each exposes.
Some see the rosebush full of thorns;
some see the thornbush full of roses.

Give me your hand; when you hold mine
I understand the connection
that binds our hearts; I suffer so
when we're apart. My loneliness

The dot on an "i" is called a tittle.
It's not a big dot; it's very little.

I was with a friend when, to his surprise,

Do blondes really have more fun
or is that simply one
of the myths perpetuated
on the uneducated?

Full name Linda Bella Wassermeister. Please just call me Belle.)

The Best Poem Of Belle Wassermeister

Linda Bella

My name is Linda Bella;
my father calls me Belle.
I used to be his little girl,
but how my size did swell!

My thyroid is all out of whack;
they've tried to regulate,
so I can blame it on hormones
and not something I ate!

I weigh about five hundred pounds
(you were afraid to ask)
but I feel good, and carry on
and don't fear any task.

My husband doesn't mind at all;
he truly is the best.
He says it really turns him on
to climb Mount Everest!

Those Twin Peaks never slow him down;
he gets right to the top
and, though this writing's been such fun,
I think it's time to stop!

Welcome back to a very worthy poet! She packs a lot of humor into some of her stuff. But, beware as she has a poem title 'Belle Is Back' and if one searches for her on PH using " Belle" , i don't think she will be found. bri :)
