Love 2
Staged
(free verse with some rhyme)

Annie did what she done best
With a gun, the west was won
Cupid done did the rest…
With bow and arrow just for fun

Butler’s traveled near and far
With Wild Bill and Chief Sitting Bull
Phoebe Ann didn’t take up much room
Filled hearts with awe with every ‘boom’.

Irving Berlin with the help of the Fields’
Made a fictional play
About Watanya Cicilla; Little Sure Shot
And that’s my piece for today…

“When a young man complains that a young lady has no heart,
It is pretty certain sign that she has his”

Joy 10

the milkweed in the backyard is safer –
less road salt, and car exhaust fumes

backyards, fields
are
better for monarchs

Note: There was an article in this weeks paper that bespoke of a study that showed milkweed by the road was hazardous to Monarch as well as other butterflies. So I cut down the plants in my front yard that were growing near the road. Joy is gained through knowledge – I will prevent at least some Monarchs from getting sick. While the link was not from my paper it basically said the same thing. I also read in related headings that for milkweed to be ‘safe’ it needs to be at least 50 feet from the road side.
