Hi everybody. It’s time for Thankful Thursday with Brian. His badge is above – if you’d like to join his Hop – you can click on his badge and link up with him and the rest of us who will be telling what we’re thankful for. Our thanks to Brian for hosting this Hop.
Very thankful for a continued streak of decent weather although we may have a bit of a storm tonight it’s been several days of BEAUTIFUL. Both of our dogwoods are beginning to show signs of changing to Fall colors and cooler weather will be welcome. I’m also thankful that we all continue to be healthy……..it’s a frightening time for many parts of the country but so far – here – we’re OK and thankful we are.
Today is also the day we see what Angel Sammy’s poem is from his weekly poetry challenge. If you wrote a poem for last week’s photo he gave to us, please share it. He loves it when you get inspired by the photos he gives us to use as inspiration.
Hello Friends!! It’s time for poetry………….
Our weekly get-together is here………..it’s not a lot of time to spend together but remember, Angels are around you ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL the time. Now, last week I gave you a really cute photo of a boy playing marbles and my Mom says she got a lot of email from people who said how many fun memories the photo brought back to them. She felt the same way as she used to play marbles with her brother. SO, here’s the photo I gave you and I hope you will tell us in comments if you wrote a poem too – and give us a link to it so we can ALL enjoy it!
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©September 8, 2021
Marbles was a game kids used to like so much
It took a steady hand, good eye, and a magic touch!
The marbles had names depending on the color
You could do “trades” with friends and exchange with one another
Once the circle was drawn it was ready, set and go
If everyone had a good “shooter” it could be quite a show!
If you played a game for “keepsies” you kept all the marbles you won
It was a wonderful, happy, game with friends and was EVER so much fun.
My Mom says she remembers her brother had a leather pouch he kept his marbles in. My Mom had a sock for hers! It was a different time……there was jump rope, jacks, hopscotch, hide and seek and so many other fun things to do that didn’t involve a Smart Phone, Computer or anything but your imagination.
SO – would you like to see the photo I picked out for next week? Good – here it is – remember you have a WHOLE WEEK to write a poem for this one then share it NEXT Thursday.
Now – get to work with your ideas – but you do have a week to put those ideas in the form of a poem – any kind of poem…………and we’ll share next Thursday. Meanwhile, please love one another, stay healthy and have a great week!
Hugs Forever, Angel Sammy
Nice poem Angel Sammy! I bet if I was around when Mom used to play marbles I would have always wanted to get in the pile of marbles and push them around with my paws and she’d be saying “NO TEDDY” a whole lot! They look like great toys. Well, I will look forward to hearing from you next Thursday if not before in my dreams.
