A Poem for Jacob; Friends and Pets
By Bonnie Jennings ©2015
The Cat and the mouse played hide and seek
In the home of a squirrel and bugs
They sang a song while running along
To the tune of tweedy in love
The squirrel took the broom and cleaned the room
While the cat watched the mouse who danced
They serenaded each other between the butter
With a fork and a pence dab-loon
The squirrel declared, “Enough!” while coughing from the dust
And, cast them, so far away
It was a terrible dismay, on a superior fine day,
In the fresh clean month of May.
And as it’s been told, speaking so bold,
The squirrel rarely comes out to play
For’ his friends did depart, thus speaking from his heart
Admits his decisions were not to smart; and that diplomacy is an art
And, that squirrels could pine forevermore at the moon…
I journeyed through middle age judging that which I was told to fear.
I missed so much good.
In early life, trusting so readily, could have swallowed me. I’m thankful, for the added chances. I’m thankful for another breath.
I see you have my goodies
Off you left with them
Many years ago
Anger and sadness kept me
Years of toiling dispair
But now, here you are!
Though I shall not trust
For’ changes you’ve escaped
Slipping past Saturn
Lessons you’ll not bring
There are many wonders above us
And you’re only one
And I watch with awe
As God reveals his son.
Virgo holds the child
The lion brought him in
The scales of balance is his goal
The fishers lead men
So on a wondrous starry night
When Jupiter flirts with you
Smile playing her games of wealth
Lastly, Nod goodbye as she steals you blue
Because the father of all watches
And Jupiter’s his child
Though she escapes with your loot
She must not escape with your soul.

Time to sleep
Rest your head
Dreams to explore
Visions in bed
Sleep is nigh
While your body rests
And all his friends
Goodnight sleep tight and don’t let the stars pass you by.
