        DREAMS FROM THE MEADOW

       by Lois Mcdonald

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.

Every Meal Should Start With Cake
by Lois Macdonald

Our family eats organic foods
And things that grow on trees
We can’t have refined sugar
Only honey straight from bees
Their pure sweet sticky nectar
Tastes like candy melted down
But chewing on a honeycomb
Makes smiles turn upside down

No dyes that make things pretty
Should be added to my drinks
Mother says they make kids crazy
That’s what all the experts think
I dream of fries and burgers
But get tofu dogs that stink
All pale without a hint of brown
And shine like porcelain sinks

Good news my dad is breaking
He’s been looking at cookbooks
And drools over the pastry page
Which prompts mom’s nasty looks
I’m really praying hard these days
That junk food will become a phase
And chips will reign on every plate
And every meal will start with cake!
