A Breath Of Fresh Air On The Board...
You do have a way about you.....
When things get alittle tense on the board...
Of lightening things up on the board again...
You truely do add a flair to the board...
A special touch...
And I think people do like you as well.........
It reminds me of spring....
So here's a springtime poem...

Spring.....
by Robert McCracken...

Today is the day when bold kites fly,
When cumulus clouds roar across the sky.
When robins return , when children cheer,
When light rain beckons spring to appear.

Today is the day when daffodils bloom,
Which children pick to fill the room,
Today is the day when grasses green,
When leaves burst forth for spring to be seen.

For winter's rains and ruins are over,
And all the seasons of snow and sins;
The days dividing lover and lover,
The light that loses, the night that wins;
And time remembered is grief forgotten,
And frosts are slain and flowers begotten,
And in green underwood and cover
Blossom by blossom the spring begins....

Hi Darcy, (((( Smiles )))

I hope you liked the poem...
I thought I would fertilize the lawn this spring..
While there would still be some rain around..
But... I guess when it comes to lawns...
I still have more to learn on how to care for one..
I opened the bags of Fertilizers...
I poured them out on the lawn..
Even thought it was raining alot... it wasn't good enough...
Bad mistake ..
So my lawn has big expanded lush dark green areas..
Like it said what would happen on the directions of the bag..
And a brown burnt spot in the middle..
At least it's a manageable spot as it's not that big..
Need to spread some seeds out there..
So like the bag said I went out and got a spreader..
For next time...
I guess instructions are made to be read and followed..
At least in this case it was...
But next time will be a charm...
And my lawn will finally Thank Me for getting the spreader as well..
Live and learn they say...
But I do like spring...
Everything is in bloom and so green...
Except the brown spot in the middle of my lawn..
How's your lawn doing ?

Take Care Darcy... ((( Smiles )))

Lynn,

How very kind of you.  Thank you for the beautiful poem.  I'm deeply touched. 

Although sometimes I feel like I'm floundering, as I once stated in another thread:

My greatest wish is for world peace, and I think bringing about world peace starts with each individual and how we treat others, that our actions and words have a ripple effect.  I think learning to discuss things on this message board from a place of kindness, humility, and respect  has bigger ramifications than just postings on a message board.  I think this board is a microcosm of the whole.  If we can't have peace on this board, how can we have peace in the world? 


And this wish for peace strongly influences what I post on this board -- be it serious or completely silly. 


I applaud you for your efforts, as I know you are also a peacemaker.  You have often braved to dive into volatile threads and do you best to calm them down, even if it involved throwing them off topic.  And  I've always been more than willing to join you in this, particularly if I saw the opportunity to be silly since I know that a good dose of laughter can often shake up the brain and restore balance to ones thinking.


Hugs


Darcy

Hi Darcy, ((( Smiles )))

I see it in you..
I know you are a peacemaker and a good person at heart..
You are so much fun on the board and I'm so glad we have you...
Serious and silly is what makes the world go around..
Just look at the world today with out some humor in life..
How would one cope with it all...
Sometimes life can be so hard yet...
Spring is in the air and humor is a gift...
And you really have a gental touch...
And spread daffodils in the world...
Thats why when I read that poem..
It had your name all over it...
Here's to the world biggest laser shield...
We really need one...
May it enlighten us all..
You Take Care Darcy...
Your one fun gal.
We appreciate that.... (((( Smiles )))

Now that you've smiled at least once ,
it's your turn to give this to someone you want to bring a smile to
( maybe even a chuckle ) ...
in other words , give it to everyone.

We all need to smile every once in a while.
