Blue Monday: Musicians

Musicians who play in the street?
Their music just cannot be beat!
Though joyful and glad
Or soulful and sad,
It’s better than any sheep’s bleat!

Blue Monday: Wise Woman

A wise woman watched from the wall
To see who would stumble and fall.
She offered them truth,
But no one, forsooth,
Accepted her offer at all.

Blue Monday: Cemetery Flowers

Wellton Memorial Cemetery, Wellton, Arizona
 


The cemetery flowers
Are blue as blue can be,
Left by a son or daughter
In loving memory.
 
The brilliant desert sunshine,
Will fade the blue to grey,
And then the son or daughter
Will bring a new display.

Blue Monday: Shopping Cart

Food City has lost a blue cart,
Though no one has torn it apart.
It’s under a tree
In shadows, you see,
And not at the local food mart.

Blue Monday: Padlock

A padlock’s a marvelous thing
For keeping my treasure and bling
Away from a thief—
It’s such a relief
That I can do nothing but sing!

Blue Monday: Bees

Nine-year-old John painted bees on a table in the shade at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona
 


A bee that is blue
Is a sight to behold.
It’s brighter, I think,
Than a bee that is gold,
Or even a bee
That is purple or red—
Just, please, keep the bees
Far away from my bed!

Blue Monday: Rocket Ship

My rocket ship is blasting off—
Won’t you come with me?
We’ll sail a million miles or more
Through a starry sea,
 
Where deep within the Milky Way
Weird fish blink and gleam,
And fishers tell the strangest tales
As they wait and dream.

Blue Monday: Doormat

Doormat at the entrance to my classroom, Yuma County, Arizona
 


The doormat’s getting gritty,
It’s time to take a broom,
And sweep away the sand grains
Before they trash the room.
 
I like to have a classroom
That’s free of grit and sand,
A place that welcomes students—
At least, that’s what I’ve planned!

Blue Monday: Bag

Discarded plastic bag, Yuma County, Arizona
 


A bag that was snagged in the sand
Polluted this beautiful land.
’Twas not the bag’s fault,
But that of the dolt
Who tossed it aside with his hand.
