August 10th……….“WHAT WAS A GIFT, GIVEN TO YOU AS A LITTLE BOY ON YOUR FARM, THAT YOU STILL HAVE AND USE ALMOST SIXTY YEARS LATER”?
POEM – “Uncle Gene’s Gift” created by N. Elliott Noorlun on September 27th, 2014
To you this may not seem like much,
But to me, It opened a world,
Of tiny wonders around me,
That this “looking glass” unfurled!!!
Sixty years, Or so ago,
My uncle gave me this,
And for all the joy, It brought this boy,
His gift was like a kiss!
From rocks and leaves, To bugs on a crawl,
To watching my blood veins bulge.
The magic of, That mini-world,
I did happily indulge.
Now here in, My latter years,
With failing eyes and sight.
My uncle’s gift still blesses me,
To see with memories bright!!! 😉
