A Guarantee of Smiles

O promise me something
A hope to last all day
A guarantee of smiles
A game for all to play

Voters are so serious
A future to ball and chain
Leave them their ballots
Recounted again and again

Lend me fair breezes
Skies full of scudding clouds
Miles of rolling farmland
Serrated by old plows

Beaches bathed in sunshine
With waves of crashing surf
Or mountain valleys misted
Rocks peeking though the turf

We did scavenge Old Dixie
But, a baby is on the way
A guarantee of smiles
How James and Jessie will play

About Kitt

Sometimes a rhyme or couplet wanders across my consciousness. So, I share it. Other times I'm a hospice social worker; others, a Dad; others, southerner, New Orleanian, cajun enthusiast, voter, and on better days, a not-too-awful-poet/rhymster. Welcome to my page. Enjoy.
