Goodbye Sunshine 2

I don’t know what happened to my post Goodbye Sunshine all that got published was the title?
So here goes again.
         ~~~~~~~~~~~

We took one last walk in the evening sun.
Roaming slowly through golden fields nearly over, our holiday fun.
The sun relaxed though strong in the Tuscan sky
Smiled on us as we said goodbye.

The table’s laid for our last meal this year.
Tomorrow evening someone else will be sitting here.
Happy laughter from the kitchen and aromas waft our way.
Sadly we must pack we have just one more day.

The sun now setting in the Tuscan sky.
This time tomorrow, up there we will fly.
Oh! I don’t want to leave this lovely darling place.
Where else in the world does a wall wear a smiley face.

Going out to dinner.

I am going out to dinner, I know it will not make me thinner!

Yet I don’t make dinning out a habit  so when a chance arrives I’ll grab it!

I have not eaten since my breakfast , though some fruit my lips did get past.

So I am very hungry and I really fancy dinner so I am going even though it will not make me thinner!!

I had a lovely dinner the restaurant had a menu that really was a winner

So we wined and dinned together and eat food as light as a feather as we chatted about the weather.

Went we got home we had dessert , the best desert ever! I hear you ask could the restaurant not match it .. the answer is no, never!

It is a very special cheesecake, chocolate and vanilla the  like you have never tasted or you ever willa or even get your filla!

Table tales and tableau

Tip tap, tip tap you run your nails down me Crip crap crip crap elbows dig in me while the reading of your books set your mind free.

Cratchy claws, drooling maws purr purr stretching legs, tummy rub, yawning  jaws. You have sat upon me you have spat upon me you have fought over me then cleaned me up and then eaten you your tea on me!

You have hidden under me covered me with drapes and made a camp out of me. You have used me as bed and excited the girl you wed  and seen your first born’s head emerge while she lay screaming on me!

I’ve been scrubbed to an inch of  my life I have witnessed trouble tears and strife. I did once have a life out side of this room I was tall and I was stunning when in Spring I was in bloom. I spread my roots and lifted my branches up into the sky so I could touch the moon.

Summer nights and Autumn days I have weathered, I have listened to laughter and heard choirs voices sing in praise of the Lord and his ways. I have seen the seasons come and go watched the farmer sow his seeds and seen the crops grow.

Now I am trapped within this house yet I really do not mind I have been a watcher of life seen the generations, children, family ,

auntie, uncle, grandma husband, wife . So as you gather round me for your chat over coffee in your kitchens, in your houses or your flats. Underneath me children and dogs on me books food shopping and cats.

Treat me right and I shall last into your future from your past. I always have such tales to tell I have been with you through heaven and hell! So treat me wrong or treat me right I shall just sit here and watch you day and night!!
