    Default Rhonda's Poetry

    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.
