Rhyme Time

WISDOM

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

We all grace as we grow older,

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Smile, smile and you’ll live longer,

 

Money can’t buy happiness

More isn’t more, it’s less.

Life is for the living

It’s better to be giving,

 

Keep your chin up high

You’ll feel better if you cry,

Love is grand and love is gay

Every dog will have his day,

And I was born just yesterday!

Barb Best

The Fly  
The Lord in His wisdom made the fly,
And then forgot to tell us why.  

- Ogden Nash


Judith Viorst is quite funny!

Dorothy Parker of course.

AFTERNOON

When I am old, and comforted,
And done with this desire,
With Memory to share my bed
And Peace to share my fire,

I’ll comb my hair in scalloped bands
Beneath my laundered cap,
And watch my cool and fragile hands
Lie light upon my lap.

And I will have a sprigged gown
With lace to kiss my throat;
I’ll draw my curtain to the town,
And hum a purring note.

And I’ll forget the way of tears,
And rock, and stir my tea.
But oh, I wish those blessed years
Were further than they be!

– Dorothy Parker

    I am not acquainted with her work, but what I read here is nicely written. she is mostly a poet, is she not, rather than a humorist.
    5 years ago I bought a book of Erma Bombeck’s writings but I can’t get Jeannine to read it.
    Maybe Dorothy Parker would be more appropriate???
