Come on Turtle let’s go!!!

Come on Turtle let’s go!!!

Come on turtle lets go!!!
I know you can go faster.
Come on turtle lets go!!!
I know you’re not a master.

Lets go!!! Lets go!!! Lets go!!!
no one walks with me anymore
because I walk like a turtle and can’t go
as fast as everyone else anymore.

I may walk slow like a turtle
but at least I am still walking
and not going through wheel chair hurdles
because I am unable to do anymore in my stockings.

My time is coming close to be in a wheel chair
But I will walk as long as I can still
walk even though I am weak there
in the legs and among those times I have to be still.

A Christmas Quote

A Christmas Quote…
Whose heart doth hold the Christmas glow
Hath little need of Mistletoe;
Who bears a smiling grace of mien
Need waste no time on wreaths of green;
Whose lips have words of comfort spread
Needs not the holly-berries red—
His very presence scatters wide
The spirit of the Christmastide.
~John Kendrick Bangs (1862-1922), “The Christmas Spirit” (December Twenty-fourth), The Cheery Way: A Bit of Verse For Every Day, 1920
