A FRIEND’S CONCERN

A FRIEND’S CONCERN

My friend, Karen, said to me,

Why do you frown sadly…

I didn’t know

My consternation showed,

BUT–apparently!

I was puzzled by the cards in  her teeth

Which she took out to speak…

Move eyebrows a tad

And I must look sad,

To know I’m really not…is relief!

Unusual  ’cause she rarely speaks,

Just smiles as out she streaks…

Tis a pleasure to know

I’m remembered so,

Because of my facial mystique!

PRESENTS HERSELF

PRESENTS HERSELF

She presents herself in front of me,

Asking about my wife…

Engaging in small talk pleasantly

Making me a part of her life.

It’s not an obligation

But a friendly “keep in touch”…

Showing consideration

That always means so much.

She could have, like others,

Ignored me by now…

Content with more important folk

To enhance her career flow!

I’m not exactly little

But sure am a guy…

So nice being remembered,

Some day I’ll ask her why.

UNFRAMED BUT VALUED

UNFRAMED….BUT VALUED

 

A “thank you” hangs on my wall,

From a neighbor thankful for all…

Of a poet’s kindness

Her dog to address,

A worthy addition to our hall.

Her handwriting is just fine,

A bigger sight finer than mine…

No need for cards,

Sensitive bards

Are happy to be kept in mind!
