Dreams from the Meadow -by Lois Macdonald

Dream of sweetness, it’s all around
While in the meadow, hear every sound
From brown-feathered larks singing
Notes played, heart-strings ringing
With all the charm nature brings.

A scurrying little grey velvet mouse
Runs round and round and round about
He perks his ears and watches me
Lay ever so still, and you will see
He will quickly vanish, one, two, three.

The tall grass parts and out he pops
With a bushy tail, it’s a coy red fox
He studies me with his golden eyes
Standing timidly, for he’s awfully shy
Soon he’ll disappear, with no goodbye.

Watching bumblebees while they dance
From flower to flower, not by chance
Monarch butterflies join in, to enhance
This vision of beauty and romance
Now charms me into, a dreamy trance.

I Tossed My Veggies -by Lois Macdonald

I tossed my veggies
Counting 1,2,3
First came the broccoli
Next came the peas
And counting 4,5,6
I threw in celery sticks
Until the whole concoction
Made me feel quite sick!

Counting on to 7
With an 8 and 9
Mixing in green lettuce
Made it look like slime
But when I finally reached 10
Mother brought the dressing
And with sweet relief
I cried out “What a blessing!”

So, the moral of this story
Is those veggies are good
While most are delicious
Only one tastes like wood
Don’t feed it to your dog
Nor your cat or canary
And never take a bite of
A veggie that turns hairy!

Now please put on a smile
Wipe away that frown
When you chew real hard
They usually go down so

Just plug up your nose
Close your eyes real tight
Toss those veggies back
Until they’re out of sight!
