A Sad Note!

Alas Old Orange Head I knew him well.
Until like Humpty Dumpty he too fell.

He would perch on counters, tables, or a sill.
Never once was he wished any ill will.

Even Molly would share his small window space.
Sitting side by side the camera to face.

But sadness settled before this Halloween.
When checking his box only pieces were seen.

He’d been with us always—at least nine or ten years.
But a rattle in the box awaken my fears.

See ceramics or glass don’t take well to a fall.
Dropping and slamming are like hitting a wall.

The picture shows them alive but one is now dead.
I’m glad it wasn’t Molly but the pumpkin instead!

I have lived with my middle son for almost a year now and he hasn't kicked me out yet. I stay active with household chores and feeding my zoo. (2 cats, 1 dog, and 1 bird.) Retired after 29 years+ at Michigan Bell Telephone and ten+ years with The Oakland Press. I was active with the telephone company union and a Dale Carnegie graduate. I work at crocheting, knitting, making ornaments, and other projects. I do a little canning. I trained with the Michigan Bell Clown troupe and then I was a clown doing parades, parties, and picnics for about 15 years. My other passions are music from the 50s through the 80s, reading, birds, flowers, my pets, big cats, and of course blogging!
