Perhaps . . .

Perhaps . . .


Spring

By Carl Larsson

1907


A P’s Offering


Perhaps the pair of use might walk –

To pick a path to stroll and talk,

To peek at posies in the park

And promenade till way past dark.


Perchance we’ll pause and ponder pasts

Or pine for promises that last.

And possibly, we’ll make our peace

With playful pastimes ne’er to cease.

He’s Got Mail


A mystery missive arrives with a bill,

Proclaiming a figure that brings on a thrill.

What was his reaction to find it unsealed?

A cynic or gullible, what was revealed?

A true sweepstakes winner, a sap or a sage?

Was he merely jaded or naïve for age?

As he scans the small print to learn of his prize,

We might gauge his odds by the look in his eyes.

What wonders await him? What fortunes come through?

But wait! You and I got the same letter too!

Romp in Circumstance

(An American Sandwich)


Flashing lights mimic insights

of late-night, last-minute exam reviews.


Proud elders and educators beam

with wonder, hope and disbelief.


They leave their high school days behind

with a joyous toss of mortarboard.

Oh Kay

Oh, Kay!

Croquet

By F. Meaulle

19th Century


The Wicket Woman

A Wry Limerick for an Old Dog’s New Trick


A hard-working woman named Kay

Knocked off for a game of croquet –

She gave it a whack,

Found she had the knack –

Soon Kay was no work and all play.

Easy Street Prompts “old dogs – new tricks”)
