HOLIDAY TIME OFF

HOLIDAY TIME OFF

 

Comes ’round Christmas time each year,

Time to plan for my wife’s cheer…

Making tracks

To th’Adirondacks,

Her family’s voice to hear.

Planning time and getting covered,

Asking the boss with timing leveraged…

Before a younger

Slates his hunger,

For family time, to be mothered.

Working through my schedule early,

Getting in first before the squirrelly…

Take away the chance to breathe

Mountain air and wood smoke wreath,

A blessed time for family, surely!

HE KNOWS SHE KNOWS

HE KNOWS SHE KNOWS

 

He had not been by for a while,

Perchance she was there with her smile…

He stopped to talk

And eagerly gawk,

She’s gotten to know his style.

In speech he is rather charming,

And many ways he is disarming…

But he’s an older man

Who comes by to scan,

The girl who’s younger and charming.

Another source of entertainment,

He compliments her on her raiment…

And then hobbles on

Singing a song,

His pleasure barely in containment.
