Poem and jokes.

If I could catch a rainbow

I would do it and

share with you it’s beauty

On the days you’re feeling blue.


If I could build a mountain

You could call your very own;

A place to find serenity,

A place to be alone.


If I could take your troubles

I would toss them in the sea,

But all these things I’m finding

are impossible for me.


I cannot build a mountain

Or catch a rainbow fair.

But let me be what I know best,

A friend who’s always there.


^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^

Three women die together in an

accident and go to heaven.

When they get there, St Peter says,

“We only have one rule here in heaven:

don’t step on the ducks!”

So they enter heaven, and sure enough,

there are ducks all over the place.

It is almost impossible not to step on a

duck, and although they try their best to

avoid them, the first woman accidently steps on one.

Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw.

So St. Peter chains them together and says,”Your

punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity

chained to this ugly man !”

The next day, the second woman accidently steps on a

duck and along comes St. Peter, who doesn’t miss a thing.

With him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them

together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.

The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to a very,VERY careful where she steps.

She manages to go for months without stepping on any ducks,

but one day St. Peter comes up with the most handsome man

she has ever laid eyes on ………very tall, long eyelashes,

muscular, and thin.

St. Peter chains them together without saying a word.

The happy woman says, “I wonder what I did to deserve

being chained to you for all eternity?”

The guy says, “I don’t know about you,

but I stepped on a duck !”

Loved the poem.

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

That poem is lovely. It reminds me of the lyrics of a song by Tom Paxton, “If I had a Troubadour.”

Wish I had a troubadour a-sittin' by my knee,
Playing stately rhythms of the ancient balladry.
If I had a troubadour, I'd signal with my hand
And he would sing for you.
He would sing for you until you'd smile.
Wish I had a wind I'd bring it by.
A gentle western wind to dry your eye.
A southern wind to keep you from your cryin',
I'm still tryin'.

Hello, I found you at Lucy's and thought I'd come for a visit. I like your poem very much.
I too am a retired senior with kids, grand and great grandkids.
Life is beautiful, I am blessed.
Come on over & see me and pin my map.

Hi Merle, it's been a maintenance day for all 3 blogs, Warren rang and told me he couldn't see some lines in heronsnest and holtieshouse without scrolling across the bottom of the pages.
I don't have a scroll bar visible on my computer, do you?
Anyway I think I fixed yours, the lines of XXXXand >>>>>>>>>>> ~~~~~~~~ that you use were too long you need to stop at about 2 or 3 inches ONLY if you use them.

Merle said...

Oops that's not really you, it's me, I'll log out when I send this.

Hi Peter (or Merle) ~ I do have a scroll
bar on my computer. It only works when
I turn the battery mode on. I like to
put something between jokes or even verses. It looks better, but will keep it down. Look again at Poem and jokes.

Glad Warren is not in Cairns at present.
Cheers, Merle. The real one.

PS Do I still need Word Verification?
