About Rick W. Cotton

I am a middle manager in Corporate America....when I am not staring out the window at the color of the leaves, or the clouds, or the blue of the sky. I am a hopeless romantic, love old movies and music, and special times. Cannot abide rap, liver and onions, reality TV, and shopping malls. I have a lovely wife, a fat cat, and a taste for BBQ.

  • The Ballad Of Daylight Savings Time

    • Published: August 29, 2018

    in Humorous Poems

    What's with this Daylight Savings Time?
    It steals our sleeping, snoozing time
    Roll out of bed and take a breath
    And feel like microwaved-reheated death

    Springtime, And The Beauty Of Nature

    in Spring Poems

    I walked by the tree at the top of the hill
    And stood to feel the wind go by
    On its journey too far and distant lands
    Through leaves it came with gentle sigh

    A Beautiful Blanket Of Snow

    in Snow Poems

    A stranger came here late last night
    Silent puffs of falling white
    Frigid, falling, drifting down
    Unusual this far down in a southern town

    The Importance Of The Nativity

    in Christmas Poems

    Over in the corner, 'neath the Christmas tree's green,
    Are the tiny wooden figures, our Nativity scene.
    Each tells a story, each plays its part.
    Each holds a special place here in my heart.

    New Technology And Old People

    in Humorous Poems

    My new phone is "smart." I guess that I'm not.
    Amazing what all this here smart phone has got.
    TV and Weather and Internet, too.
    There's just no limits to what it can do.
