the way your hopping and sometimes stopping
or the feeling and sight of your ears a’ flopping
could be the sound of children’s laughter
they are sure its not a carrot your after
for you are strong and fast a burrows crafter

Easter Memories

by scatterednotebooks

Poetry challenge: Easter poem.
.
We waited for the Easter Bunny
like we did for Santa Claus,
but he would bring the gift of spring
with his soft, little bunny paws.

thinking nothing of the chore,
like colouring pretty Easter eggs
and decorations for the door.

A poem for valentine’s Day

by Harry

Submitted by Tsegaye Tessema Tola

.

I dreamed as if I will cheer my love- Habtish
In that dream I saw my angles’ hands on the dish
I stretched my hands and could not reach out to feed my kids
My sweet love constantly looks into my eyes in that dream and I into hers
How wondrous is that dream pulling my neck all that long to her lips for a kiss.

May the hand of our Lord always guide you
May His tender love daily anoint your heart
May the peace of His heaven fill your world
As this New Year’s breath begins to start

May His grace in your mind be steadfast
May the light of His Spirit fill your face
May you never again feel any loneliness
As you live daily in His loving embrace
