Rhymes Over Easy- October 2009

I was raised on Alki Beach
By our Mother, who would teach
An opened book is where to find
The pathway to an open mind

With sister, I would sit wide-eyed
While mother, nestled by our side
Read tales of Lassie coming back
And Jabberwocky's snicker snack

When older, I could not resist
The chance to then apply my twist
By coming up with special rhymes
To celebrate our current times

And to this day with Husband Dear
I live in West Seattle near
My friends and family who would lead
Me to this book I hope you read

I can't help feeling this was planned
And reaching down is mother's hand
Reminding me, though things you lose
It's hearts you win, when you amuse
