----------

For every single day

For every single day
Today, tomorrow, and after:
Till we grow old and gray…
For every single day
As long as we both may
Live: may there be joy and laughter
For every single day
Today, tomorrow, and after.

You did not woo me

You did not woo me
With pretty words and flowers
You just let me be:
You did not woo me
You just talked to me
Of all you thought, for hours.
You did not woo me
With pretty words and flowers.

-Unmana Datta

I very recently got acquainted to your blog and just happened to see this. It's lunch time for me and I'm having corn bisque. So here's my contribution:

Corn Chilli Bisque-
Hot, sumptuous!
It's about lunch time!
Corn Chilli Bisque-
With a hint of fresh lime,
Piquant, scrumptious!
Corn Chilli Bisque-
Hot, sumptuous!

Entry fee: I hand-painted a get-well card for an ailing teacher of mine.

I’m the mother of a girl
Who cries all day for tales
She is such a pearl
I’m the mother of a girl
I spin, whirl and twirl
For my kid asks for tales
I’m the mother of a girl
Who cries all day for tales
