Hello, my Friend! Hello today!
I hope you are in a good way!
No matter rain, no matter shine,
I always hope your day is fine!
I didn’t finish telling you,
What Nannie and Me-self did do!
The story of my holiday
Is what I have more of to say!
I travelled fine with me Nannie,
Who really thought she needed me
To come and help her when I could…
She knows, of course, I always would!
After we saw the Church windows,
And saw the shamrocks great grand shows,
We then tried to find Nannie’s Friend’s.
Her Friend lives right by where “There” ends!
Her Home had a fine, grand red door!
‘Tis special, that, ’cause it means more
When doors are red…because of when
In times of old, ’twas help for men.*
‘Twas given so the angel knew
To let the home just pass from view.
Whose door had red, that home was giv’n,
Protection right from God in Heav’n,
From all hurt, harm, and suffering…
For other homes, the day might bring.
So when a door is red, you know,
That trust in God, it might just show
When talking to the someone who
Does live there and who’s Friends with you.
That’s how it is for Nannie here…
Who lives there is her Friend so dear!
I sat right there upon the door,
While Nannie did what she came for.
And then I went inside to look.**
I thought I might find a good book!
But then I looked out the window,
And then I saw a nice bench, so
I sat on this bench, ’twas red, too,
And felt the breeze…enjoyed the view!
But then I thought I heard someone!
I left my spot right in the sun.
I jumped right down so I could hide
Behind the hay right on the side
Of this fine home, near end of “There.”
That’s all I know…it’s just “somewhere.”
But it was fine…no one was there,
I had no need to hide anywhere!
This was a fine and grand fun day
And I just really loved the way
Me Nannie and I had travellin’ fun
When we visited her someone!
I’m glad to tell you travellin’ tales,
Of hiding behind large hay bales! 😉
But truly we did have grand fun,
But now our visitin’ is done.
It’s back to needs be done each day,
And after that some time to play!
I am so glad we talked today.
God bless you is what I do say! (See Footnote #35)
