You have a wife to defend,
I have a garden to tend.
You have kids to raise,
I have roses to praise.
You have bills to pay,
I have weeds to weed.
You have floor to mop,
I have tools to shop.
You have family, friends
And love to share,
I have flowers to spare.

oops wrong link. That was a clever bitter-sweet poem.Gone for a poem this week based on the Etheree form created about twenty years ago by an Arkansas poet named Etheree Taylor Armstrong It normally consists of ten lines of unmetered and unrhymed verse, the first line having one syllable, each succeeding line adding a syllable. I added an extra row for the word count and the punch line. See what I mean here.
My goodness....I think I just read about my own life. This was super.
Mine this week is DOUBLE STANDARD As always, scroll down a bit, below my Friday's Show n Tell.
Have a super weekend fellow 55'r!!
oh lovely. It's spring time too, and the flowers have come alive. Have a beautiful spring weekend. Mine is up too:
sweet but sad to see there seems to be loneliness at the garden. i too have a garden, just not so lush..
That is adorable!
Clever and very good!
No offense, but I'd rather have family than roses.
Beautiful, mere reality so well stated in a 55!
Yeah, I quite like the end rhymes here.
well said, great 55 xxx
I like the comparison of two beautiful, productive lives.
I know I am stereotyping, and thus could be all wrong. But I love what seemed like the shift in voice from female to male and back to female.
really like that! especially the "flowers to spare.."
Always take time to admire the flowers! Lovely 55 :)
That gardening life sure sounds appealing. Alas, my thumbs are so brown I can't tell them apart from the surrounding earth. :)
This is a really lovely 55, Jingle!
