THE MOUSE IN A THIMBLE

A mouse in a thimble he saw

On a fine lady of awe…

He noticed the pin

On the sweater she was in,

Complimenting her for the pin he saw!

SPICY SNACK AT 2 AM!

Came home from work and shopping,

Other than that–no reason for stopping…

some “Brown ans Serve”

He’s nibbling (the nerve!),

and gobbled all up in the offing!

–J.E.C.

 

LOOKOUT—HERE COMES SOMEBODY ON A BROOM!

Bewitching hour nears,

I don’t have any fears…

Except that warning

Have to rise Sunday morning

Before my nurse appears!

🙂

OVERNIGHT SENSATIONS

Rainy last night long and loud,

Clearing today still much cloud…

Woke up to

Friends who are new,

Boy, this Poet feels proud!

POETS WITH TECHNICAL PROWESS

“Ain’t me!”

–J.E.C.

The old-time poet towers

Over we with lesser powers…

Taking days

To turn a phrase,

That heritage on us showers.

Rhyme schemes with two or three points

Of focus their greatness anoints…

My simple schtick

With limerick,

Is good in the seedier of joints.

Not that I don’t have class,

But in poetic fame, they’ve way past…

Old books in stores

That have seen two, three wars,

Will be all our fates at the last!

–Jonathan Caswell

WRITE BEFORE BREAKFAST

WRITE BEFORE BREAKFAST

Writing done any time,

Take every opportunity to rhyme…

One at least

Before morning’s feast,

The day will turn out more sublime!

–J.E.C.

AT A STANDSTILL

Guided meditation seems fine,

If I could find the time…

With no progress

Alleviating stress,

I’m hung out on the line!

–J.E.C.
