You fight your whole life
to be seen,
to be different,
to be understood.

Enjoying The Beautiful Autumn Season
in Fall Poems
Misty mornings, frosted lawns
The wind is blowing a winter's song.

Very good. It brings me back to my childhood days when I would know that Autumn was on the way. The colors, the harvest, the year-end holidays and the coolness of the nights and early...

There is a very powerful message in this poem! Horses are a wonderful creature...very elegant, graceful, charming, and spirited! My family had three Appaloosas we use to board on Cooke's Ranch near Brightwood, Oregon. We got to experience the beauty of these creatures first hand! There was Cricket, Red Star, and Sparky! All three of them brought us much love and joy!
I had to send this poem to my older brother, Mike, after I read it! The poet describes everything about his mother exactly as if we were talking to our own mom! She passed on in the spring of 2005, and we all miss her Christmas dinners she has held over the years! We always had a wonderful time together. She would cook the main dish, and the rest of the family members would bring all the side dishes. The men usually brought either smoked salmon or elk and venison to add! All the children were given gifts from Old Saint Nick! Also the dogs got a bone. We all miss our mother so much, especially around the Christmas holiday! We love you, Mom! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
I just loved this poem for kids and adults! It reminded me of the Dr. Seuss books children would read in grade school! Very similar, and a fun read indeed!
I remember hearing this poem as a little youngster. I would also read this to my daughter and nephews each year right before Christmas! It is a wonderful poem to share with your family! Thanks again for bringing back special memories of the holiday season!
I've had many dogs in my life! Growing up as a little girl, I remember my father taking my younger sister and me to pick out our first dog. He was a terrier mix, and my father named him Spud because his fur had similar colors as a potato! Later on we realized that the name fit his personality too! He was the holy terror of the neighborhood! He liked to run and get into everything! In my adult life I've had many golden retrievers! They are very good family dogs, very happy, and show a lot of love. My last Golden was a male named Jake. He was a great champion and made my husband and I laugh constantly! We enjoyed his company so much. He always gave unconditional love 24/7! We lost him to lymphoma cancer two years ago at the age of eight (56 doggie years)! Now we have a chocolate lab named Cocoa who we rescued after someone dump him in our neighborhood. He is my best buddy and has given me much joy and laughter! Dogs are truly God's gift from heaven!
