Mondays poems

I am not sure what happened, LOL. Here's the poem.

First Child... Second Child

By: Ogden Nash


Be it a girl, or one of the boys,
It is scarlet all over its avoirdupois,
It is red, it is boiled; could the obstetrician
Have possibly been a lobstertrician?
His degrees and credentials were hunky-dory,
But how's for an infantile inventory?
Here's the prodigy, here's the miracle!
Whether its head is oval or spherical,
You rejoice to find it has only one,
Having dreaded a two-headed
daughter or son;
Here's the phenomenon all complete,
It's got two hands, it's got two feet,
Only natural, but pleasing, because
For months you have dreamed of flippers or claws.
Furthermore, it is fully equipped:
Fingers and toes with nails are tipped;
It's even got eyes, and a mouth clear cut;
When the mouth comes open the eyes go shut,
When the eyes go shut, the breath is loosed
And the presence of lungs can be deduced.
Let the rockets flash and the cannon thunder,
This child is a marvel, a matchless wonder.
A staggering child, a child astounding,
Dazzling, diaperless, dumbfounding,
Stupendous, miraculous, unsurpassed,
A child to stagger and flabbergast,
Bright as a button, sharp as a thorn,
And the only perfect one ever born.


Arrived this evening at half-past nine.
Everybody is doing fine.
Is it a boy, or quite the reverse?
You can call in the morning and ask the nurse.

Update on (Why I Left the Amish)

I am enjoying this book very much. From the first page I was immediately brought in and started to see what was being described to me.

I'll keep you posted as I continue on reading. I had a bit of slow start on starting this book because I have a cold but it is very hard to put it down. =)

I just thought this one was to funny not to share.

Mondays poems

This is one of my favorite poems. With the cold weather it goes hand in hand. =)

The Germ
By: Ogden Nash

A mighty creature is the germ
Though smaller than the pachyderm
His customary dwelling place
Is deep within the human race
His childish pride he often pleases
By giving people strange dideases
Do you, my puppet, feel infirm?
You probably contain a germ

I really like this quote, she hit it with this one. =)

First book

I'm starting to read "Why I Left the Amish," by Saloma Miller Furlong. I chose this book because it caught my eye when searching for one to read. Memoirs are one of my favorite genres. I will be blogging soon to update you on my journey throughout this book.
