red hatter

 

yes, growing older
but not “elderly” yet
in fact, feeling bolder
with new friends i’ve metIMG_5831

make statement of fashion
wearing purple and red
deep colors of passion
circle hats upon heads

fun club for ten lassies
monthly travels around
visit places quite classy
while laughter abounds

we live and we learn
shop & dine as an art
the education we earn
keeps brain cells smart

if you see us round town
please give us a smile
we’re the happy red hatters
“live-out-loud” is our style!

 

 


Linking to dVerse Poets pub where Sarah hosts “seeing red” poetry prompt!

Tea Party with Friends

 

Out on the lawn under a tree

with tables set quite daintily

a floral scent inside the tent

where Bethel ladies take their tea.

 

Cookie for you, a scone for me

small sandwiches cut diagonally

drink hot or cold, pour flavors bold

when Bethel ladies take their tea.

 

Our host is Ms. Mary Jo Lee

a proper southern belle is she

invites us chat, imagine that’s

why Bethel ladies take their tea.

 

Wear fancy hat to grand partay

recite a poem or play croquet

switch chairs on run, stir in good fun

how Bethel ladies take their tay!
