We pretend we’re brave,
Wave and tell them to ‘fly’
And to reach for the rooftops
Of dream-sequined sky

We pretend we're ready
...with unsteady grin
We clap while the hour
Fills its bubble-skin

We pretend we’re excited
In spite of the fear
That swirls summer’s laughter
With winter-stark tear
We pretend we’re stronger
Than we really are
And lend them a shoulder
As they reach for the stars

  1. Yup, exactly.:) Who knew we could pretend so well?
    Have a great day!

    1. thank-you.

      I'm working at preparing the deck to strip and stain it and am in the middle of cleaning/cleaning out garage and basement...all on hold because I babysit today, but with Melissa home for today I might be able to work at it a little:)
      ...but the bathroom tap broke and because the sink is SO old they need to order taps in..I'm ready to head back to Marspan for the third time(this time with measurements and pictures:) because they want to make sure they order the right style for the sink. They are expensive!!...and THAT'S the flavor of our 27th wedding anniversary;-) the weather is almost and sunny.


Thank you for your visit to this porch. Any thoughts you would like to share?
