Poem For the Day
Eight Smirky Turkeys
Eight smirky turkeys at the front gate
Came this morning to celebrate
All there is that brings us joy
For each and every girl and boy.
They told us all how bright the way
It is for us to start the day
With Cassie barking up a storm,
That tells us how to always transform
The idea that barking is annoying
Rather than bringing the gleeful joy in
That brings us the entrance to the time
When every day will be sublime.
Weíll see the pleasure that comes from within
And know how to allow it to bring a grin
To our faces and our everyday lives
And everything else that nature contrives,
To bring us peace and joy from within
And be able to go on with a grin
At all that is with us in a momentís rhyme
That tells us it is with us through all of time.
So go on with our days and donít hesitate
As we celebrate the example of Love at our gate.
For it is an example of how we are able
To bring the feast of Love to every table.
Whether it be in the morning or the end of the day
We can taste the sweetness in every way.
So smile at the treasure of eight morning turkeys,
And see the example of how to be quirky.
For there is nothing that can beat loving life
Than seeing the freedom of life without strife.
