Here is a poem I recently wrote. I worked with special children for many years.
A Child Who Could Not Speak
Words bounce from his moth
Like gumballs jumping
From their slippery slot
Clattering to the floor
Thoughts tied behind in darkness
To be freed.
In his dream a miracle:
He is a word,
Sliding down a banister,
Opening the front door
Ellen, I thought you'd enjoy this, as I know how you enjoy children. I knoe Music has opened many doors.
I often enjoy listening to the boys play a piece on the iano for me. Thanx for being such a good teacher. Here's a poem I recently wrote:
I never saw a sky so deep
I And tall as when I stood alone,
And had to leave my life behind
Somewhere in time and far from home.
I never saw a day this grey
As when a tiny bird flew by,
A speck of feathers in the sky,l
And left me crying far away.
I never saw a tree so bare
When azure leaves forgot to laugh
And drifted through the autumn air,l
And floated sadly on my path.
Aub when I heard you call my name,
I chased the moon across the sky,
I grew these wings, I learned to fly,
And nothing ever stayed the same. Lois
Hi Ellen, I am so glad you liked my poem.
I wondeer if my daughter, Dana, told you I am the grandmother of Nic and Zac, two of your piano students. You do such a great job as their teacher.I Lois Hudson
Thanks for your kind words. It is great to hear that you have other Iranian friends too! If you don't mind I am going to add you to my friends list on Facebook. I also joined the Environmental Zoo. When I am free, like when I am having a nap in my bed ;-), one of the things I always think about is the environment. I guess Environmental Zoo is a great place to share our ideas on this hot topic.
"The noticeably bitter taste of turnip greens has been linked by researchers to its calcium content. On an ounce-for-ounce basis, turnip greens contain about 4 times more calcium than a much less bitter-tasting cruciferous vegetables like cabbage."
Have you always wanted to make your own bread? Well, here's a little article about making rye bread with a bread machine. This bread machine came from a thrift store and only cost $11.99! The ingredients to make Russian Rye were so simple you won't believe how easy it was. Enjoy!
