Year two thousand and twelve is winding down, four more days, it will be gone. Yes, my friends and readers, we have had our ups and downs. In one way or another, we have learned a thing or two. There is more yet to be done. One cannot live on his merit alone. That is not the way progress is won. Teaching the young and others what we know is now our responsibility. We will not shirk it. It is the American way.
Our family at home is shrinking. Now, as I look around,
I recall James is away at college, Mary at Normal school.
A new school is being built. That is progress in our town.
We’ve made it plain, education for all here is the rule.
My writing, will continue, I hope, to show up on my blog
I wonder if, I should take a course in writing, something
new, maybe more in tune with the modern ways, or slog
along as I do presently, going no place along my path.
Why should I put myself down when my stats do disagree
with me. I am happy that my family is keeping time along
the way with me, a proof that we are a solid family.
This is my song, I ask you to sing it along with me.
Readers, I’ll not change; I’ll not stray to write untruths,
except perhaps, a small embellishment for adding zest
to a write that leaves me in a snow storm with no boots.
Thank you. It’s been my honor and my pleasure, no less,
to write for you and to be in your library, a guest.
