Breaktime Poem by Billy Loving


Rating: 4.8

Relaxing, tantalizing foray
From work, a brief respite
Enjoying a beautiful spring day
In the cooling breeze, I delight
Fresh blooms abound
The fragrance of honeysuckle fills the air
Birds chirping out nature's melodic sound
At a swimming fish, I stop and stare
Once bare trees now covered in leaves
A hawk lazily soars through the sky
Observing the spider as the web he weaves
Hearing the fluttering wings while a hummingbird buzzes by
All his wonders small and great
Such happiness, the Lord's works create

aho Billy I am constantly having to hold down my o THE COFFEE CROWD Our irrascible, lovable Fred. Finding out he's a softie's his dread. #1 So be on your guard, He'll be down on you, hard, And slap you 'longside of your head. Grammatical Pat's an example: #2 That English is not what you trample. Be precise and concise, And say something that's nice.. And I don't have a rhyme here that's ample) We sometimes are joined here by Allan #3 (The one that we fear has just fallen... When he's down on the ground, Tho he's just CLEARING 'round His marigold patches) ... (that Allan!) El presiden-TAY's name is Gail #4 And we bow and we holler All Hail! `` You thought teaching was tough.. Well, when YOU`ve had enough Of presiding, we`ll `range for your bail. And now we have come to Sir Robin. There are times he can leave your head throbbin'. #5 Tho wondrous tales HE tells Please spare us the DEtails... Familial lists leave us sobbin'. Vice president`s name? Why, 'tis (Sissily) Cecily. #6 Say it right or she`s gonna get bristily. (I lie, beg your pardon.) She's in charge of the garden As well. (and remember it's 'Sissily') Now we`ve Marsha, The girl with the hair. #7 She`s a cutie, but do not despair, Tho She`s taking a hike With her pup and her bike, And the money, I hear`s, in her care. I don't know what to say about Gerri #8 She's not sweet, she's not quiet, (not very) But she gen'rally knows What she's saying, (it shows) , (And I pause before being contrary) And here's Gordon, who's under suspicion; #9 Kind and gentle with soft erudition. He's too good to be true, WE'LL FIND OUT ABOUT YOU! ... (Check with Martha for latest submission) Oh, what's our man Archie about? #10 He looks like he's 'bout to break out. He'll demand a new ship When he gets his new hip. (I don't think that we have any doubt.) Now I'm in trouble, it's Donna, #11 And I really can't say what I wanna. She seems quiet and pert. (I don't want to get hurt.) We'll discuss her downstairs in the sauna. She's here and she's ev-er-y-where, #12 It's Connie, well, I do declare! In the Manor halls, In the Manor walls? It's always nice knowing she's there. Louie the lip's rather raucous, #13 He'd BE at home IN any caucus Of a crow or a ram, Or at old Notre Dame, Or at any place that he could mock us. AND, of course, then there is Wes. #14 I don't KNOW what to say, I confess. He thinks he's a poet, But SOME wish he'd stow it (Which he'd ONLY do under duress.) Good heavens we left out our Janet, #15 (and final) The quietest girl on the planet. Silent rivers run deep Or is she asleep? No more lim'ricks, says she, we will ban it. I do appreciate rhyming verse. You also have a nice flow which tells me you read them aloud before finishing. My genre is the disciplined limerick, largely the attempt to put old jokes into limerick form. I have just discovered you (hope there are some limericks) Not too much wrong with this one a 9
