Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

All the Hog fans and all his team’s men

Couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty together again.

But let’s not condemn or too critical be

We must remember, "It could have been me!"

If the guilt and shame for the damage he’s done

Brings true repentance then victory is won.

Humpty feels terrible betraying self, family and friends

But this crisis should not be where all success ends.

God will forgive him, family and friends, too.

So, here’s the ball, Humpty, it’s now up to you!

My husband kissed me twice today

before he turned and walked away.

Kiss Two was not a duty peck!

He kissed me hard and hugged my neck

and held me very close to him.

Now nothing in the world seems grim.

I felt so sleepy — felt so tired —

until Kiss Two got me inspired.

Today is certain to be nice

just because he kissed me twice!

There was a tiny running — clear little

stream ...

A little brook with many rocks

filling it from bank to bank —

There many times would be crawfish

under every stone ... lifted it seemed.

Such a refreshing pastime in summer — barefoot —

the cool water splashing — clothes all dank.

As the water ripples and meanders through the moss covered stones ...

The water so shallow ... no danger — even if

you were sometimes left to play alone;

The older children — occasionally the crawfish-

would cook ...

As we grow older ...the younger days are gone —

but — oh, what memories — they last so long!
