I am a quilter first and foremost but I've been writing poetry since I was in high school.

thought I'd share some of my poetry with you.

Quilting quilting as we go
Where it ends we do not know
One day we started and
Now we can't stop!

One bright fabric I see
then there were three!
Oh me oh my I believe
They are calling to me!!!!

I shopped and hopped
til I hopped no more
I'm done! I declared
As I lay on the floor!

But one more fabric
Beckoned me more!
I wished and wished
as I went out the door!

For just one more sale
which should be my last!!
But I guess the quilt pixies
Had to have the last laugh!

I saw blues and reds
and yellows galore
They had browns and greens
That filled that store!

Colors danced and cavorted
Round my poor head
as I stared at the racks
filled with quilts for my bed!

Plaids and Cottons and
Batiks by the bolt!
Stacks of Homespun that
Gave me a jolt!

I needed them all
but my money was low
I hoped and I hoped
for a sale don't you know!!

From the corner of my eye
I spied the very thing!
A 50 per cent off sale!
Yes! Now I can sing!!

I get to buy some
Of all of these prettys
Now to go home and
Make quilts for my Kiddies!

Oh My! Happy days!
I will be able to say!
It won't be my last!
But I had a Great Day!

It Could Be Worse

The dog got sick
The kids said ICK!

Of course it could be worse
There is another verse!

The Cat birthed kittens
They all wore mittens!

Of course it could be worse
There is another verse!

The kids broke the well
And in they all fell!

Of course it could be worse
There is another verse!

Mom burnt the roast
They all ate toast!

Of course it could be worse
There is another verse!

Dad wrecked the car
They had to walk far!

Of course it could be worse
There is another verse!

The house fell apart
It went in a cart!

Of course it could be worse
There is another verse!

The ice cream did melt
All over my new belt!!!!!!!!

Oh my oh my call a hearse!!!
IT DOESN’T GET ANY WORSE!!

------------------------------------------------

Soft and Gentle

Soft and Gentle

Soft and Gentle
made a pact
to use their words
with equal tact

And so each day
they did agree
to give advice
and so to heed

Merrily merrily
they up and went
helping the lassies
then the gents

Around the world
they up and flew
spreading comfort
to a child or two

When day was done
And all was well
Soft and Gentle
came home to dwell.
