    We had a bit of snow
    The day was overcast
    I went out anyway
    And probably drove too fast.

    I met my good friend
    We had some lunch
    Then went to a movie
    Which I enjoyed a bunch.

    Re: Rhyme Time

    I know you'll think
    it's really weird
    but I think a rhyme
    has disappeared.

    I could have sworn
    I posted one
    can't find it now
    and that's no fun.

    Perhaps I might have
    made a mistake
    and hit the wrong key
    I'm such a flake.

    So if you find
    a rhyme that's lost
    please send it home
    at any cost.

    The reward that's offered
    though you may not covet
    is another rhyme
    and you may not love it !

    It's time to think
    Of flowers and candy
    To make Valentine's Day
    A holiday that's dandy

    Easter comes but once a year,
    time for little ones to cheer
    as chocolate bunnies lose an ear.

    Cuter little peeps
    all pink and yellow
    residing next to that rabbit fellow.
    All in a bed of Easter grass.
    How's that for some Easter class?

    Re: Rhyme Time

    I wrote this poem 3 years ago on the occasion of our silver wedding anniversary.

    It was twenty-five years ago on
    A rainy Sunday afternoon
    When friends and family gathered
    To witness the marriage of a certain bride and groom.

    As the wedding processional began
    Father and bride walked down the aisle
    Camera bulbs flashed as
    They captured their smiles.

    Prayers were read, vows exchanged, and hymns were sung
    The priest said “You may kiss your bride. The marriage has begun.”

    After the mass the well-wishers gathered outside
    Waiting patiently to throw confetti at the groom and bride.

    Into the limo and off to the reception.
    Butterflies in my stomach akin to indigestion.

    Guests mingled with food and drink as a pianist played
    During the cocktail hour the bridal party stayed
    In the bridal room until they were called
    By the maitre’d into the reception hall.

    Time for the first dance as the band began to play
    “You’re My Everything” was our song as I recall to this day.
    No sense of rhythm does my beloved possess
    We held onto each other tightly and did our best.

    Toasts were made and glasses raised in good cheer.
    The best man gave his speech amid shouts of “Here, here!”

    Good food, good drink was had by all.
    Everyone seemed to be having a ball.

    The Electric Slide, the Chicken dance, and the tarantella
    Now some slow dances for the bride and her fella.

    The cake is cut, a dance with dad, and a toss of the bouquet
    The reception is now over. The guests have all gone away.

    Yes, it’s been twenty-five years since we started our life.
    Wonderful memories, two great sons--I’m so happy and proud to be your wife.

    Eastcoastmon, your wedding was a wonderful day!
    I hope good fortune continues to come your way.

    Have a glass of wine
    and a long sweet kiss
    to celebrate 28 years
    of marital bliss.

    Happy Anniversary!

    ECM, you got me all misty-eyed. Your poem was written from your heart, and that made it even more beautiful.

    I expected to see
    a single word for me
    I'd put it to rhyme
    be it "fig" or "sublime"
    it was quite nice, however
    to read your poetic endeavor,
    as well as the others above
    poetry fits y'all like a glove! !
