'It Takes A Village To Raise A Child'

My red neck friends disdain her
Or hold her in open contempt
But she has given us a truth in a land of cities
It takes a village to raise a child.
So who were: Daisy and Pappy Millet? Don and Esther Urquhart? Ken Gardner and Jean Thompson? Sphen and Danny Loman? Jo Strain, George VanClef and Madeline Maurie?
Who were these people and others who raised me?
(The names that are not enshrined here)
You do not have to even know all their stories
To know their truth
It takes a village or at the very least
A church of great heart to help raise a child.

:) Reflection on Three Robert Frost Poem Dates

If 1912 is the date he burned his boats
Then three poem dates I find of interest
1915 - The Road Not Taken
1920 - Fire and Ice
1923 - Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
My understanding $200 his income
From his first twenty years of writing
Makes me feel ok I'll never earn a penny.

:) Eulogy For 'Duke' A Long Dead Dog

Officially he was Othello and black as The Moor
A dog of perfect face
But a little too wide of flank for show perfection.
Of such sweet disposition
MJ literally took ham from his mouth
With only temporary cost of betrayed confusion to his face.

Therefore he must be given the benefit of doubt
For one solitary night when father was away
With stranger he turned completely vicious at the door
And denied evil entry, vetoing mother's gracious spirit.
What that darkness in somatic form intended I will never know
And am convinced to this date we were protected on that night of snow
By a loving lovely Labrador a little too wide of flank for perfect show.

Lesson from Robert Frost’s “Fire and Ice”

Robert Frost has taught me
It is best not to comment on one’s poetry
For when expected apocalypse does not come
A poem well written will still run.
