When I go to St. Anne’s and enter the door
I know that my time there will not be a bore.
The residents will greet me with a smile
so I take off my coat and stay for awhile.
There’s Brian, who always offers a hug
then, there’s Sr. Christina – as cute as a bug.
I walk to the Chapel and get ready for Mass
then, on Tuesdays, at 10 there’s Bible study class.
Some days I hang out with the card playing bunch
then join the sisters for a tasty lunch.
All in all, I have to say
going to St. Anne’s makes my day!
I’d like to share a poem I wrote in honor of today’s observance.
This day is set as “Poetry Break Day,” and that is nation-wide,
Whether in North Dakota, or Hawaii you abide.
Today’s a day to take a break and enjoy this form of writ,
Or why not try and compose a poem, if you’ve got the grit!
A poem can be a special way to tell some one you care,
Why not jot one down when you’ve got time to spare?
Reading poetry can surely be a way you can relax –
Wouldn’t you rather read a poem than file income tax?
Here at St. Anne’s, I wonder if folks will take the time
to stop their daily goings-on to enjoy a rhyme.
