A Celebration Day/ Lovers Poetry/ Katherine Hepburn/ Phyllis Diller

D's Photos, My Poems

Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight. ~Phyllis Diller, Phyllis Diller’s Housekeeping Hints, 1966

Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then. ~Katherine Hepburn


A Celebration Day



It would be easy just to say

That this is us on any given day.

But wiser souls than I would laugh

And interrupt on your behalf.

Your bed is roses some would say

But how do flowers find their way

To piles of grass and new mown hay?

And how did I the regal power

End on the couch at this small hour?

And where’s the love that shines above?

Where is the woman I do love?

And where is something I can eat

And must I sleep with these cold feet?

Perhaps there will be time again

When I can call you my best friend.

Oh I have gone and hurt your heart

And caused this fiery sky to start.

So yes there’s  beauty on display

But this is not a celebration day!
