Up Up And Away We Go!!!

Updated on September 19, 2013

Today's poems are for fun and that is one commodity we can never have too much of.

Up we go higher and higher where stories are told and beauty much brighter.

Fly so high right up to the sky; where hearts flow freely and magical each cry.

Oh What Fun !!!

It was a beautiful day

with many a bewitching sound.

Birds flying; birds singing

nature’s beauty we found.

We were carrying

two beautiful kites.

Mine an awesome monkey

Ellie’s a tiger so bright!!

We walked all the way

to the fields above.

Ellie so bubbly

her laughter I love.

We held the strings as we

ran in full flow;

The kites took flight

their beauty on show.

The weaving and bobbing

of her amazing tiger;

Ellie’s joy so evident

the world ever brighter?

Her tiger looked awesome

when seen from below;

She chanted and giggled

“Go tiger Go!!!”

My monkey started to lose

some of its grace.

Looking very slanted

was his poor wrinkled face.

It crashed its descent

zooming it’s way !!!

Till in many many pieces

my poor kite lay !!

Ellie laughed and laughed

till she could no more.

I joined in her laughter

till my sides were so sore !!

Ellie’s tiger still in one piece

and really seems to grin.

Was my poor monkey

on his way to the bin !!

But oh no fear

with string and glue;

My monkey once again

looked brand new.

Oh what fun we had

yesterday afternoon.

And will we do it again?

Oh yes very soon!!

Up Up And Away .


Up up and away

How I love this quote

I say it nearly every day

Whatever floats your boat!

I say it to you

I say it to him

I say it to her

I say it to them.

You must have wanted

To start that climb high

Then in contentment

Watch the world go by.

I say it to you

I say it to him

I say it to her

I say it to them.

We should all aim high

And never for low.

With a happy sigh

Your heartbeat will flow.

I say it to you

I say it to him

I say it to her

I say it to them.

Forward we must go

Upwards we will climb.

The way I will show

This is now your time.

I say it to you

I say it to him

I say it to her

I say it to them.

I introduce to you all today my friend Sammy.

Hello to you all!!

I would like you to meet a naughty but enchanting little squirrel who decided to be a regular visitor to our bird table.

Sammy did arrive

One sunny morning.

Without a simple

Word of warning.

He hung cleverly

From the bird table.

He took tasty morsels

His little paws very able.

He looked at me

With a cheeky defiance.

His little head nodding

So endearing that glance.

I know without a doubt

My Sammy so very dear.

On you Mother Nature excelled

And that is so obviously clear.

      This is delightful and brought some childhood memories of me and my cousins sending kites up above and how we used to make them during August holidays... Also about the squirrel who used to play on our mango tree near our tree house when we share some of our food. Lovely times :) Thank you for lovely poems and beautiful pictures :) Have a blessed day!

      Did you know that some people design squirrel feeders? I like this one : because the squirrel has to go in the glass bottle :-)

      Enjoy your weekend!

      I remember flying kites and what fun it was even though I was never very good at it. This was a fun read with a message to remember. Thanks for starting my day with a smile.

      I always loved to fly my kite on the beach, and my mother would almost have a nervous fit, as I ran and jumped over people on their towels getting a tan. When she called me, "Young Lady" I knew I had to slow down. I was a blonde, long legged free spirit who got into trouble a lot.

      I loved your poems, you are so great in making me remember the sweet things in life are those precious moments of being young and free.

      Your Friend,

      Bobbi Purvis

      How wonderful to see brightness and laughter! Yes, I can remember my kites always hitting the ground while others flew away.

      "We should all aim high"... how true my friend. The higher we aim the better our chances.

      Voted all but funny!

      Eddy, these are such fun poems. I haven't flown a kite in forever! I love your Sammy. I have several squirrels that visit my yard, none of which are afraid of me. I just love watching them eat acorns out of my yard then play tag in the trees.

      Fun hub, my sweet friend. Enjoy your day, Eddy!
