THE WORLD IS BIG AND ROUND

The world is big and round, and if
I do not like one side of it .. .
I spin it round with just a biff . . .
And try the other side a bit.

And if when it's been turned about
I do not like it very well . . .
I turn the whole world inside out . . .
And try it that way for a spell.

And then if everything seems wrong
I put the whole world on the shelf . . .
And take a microscope along . . .
And take a good look at myself!

  1. Thanks for this, Margie. I like the message here. One should always look at the positive side of things. We tend to see the not so good ones.

  57. Dear Margie,
    It's very early Sat. Morn. I just read on Polona's blog that your brother is very ill and my email won't open or I'd send this via email.

    I put this here on this post, so you are not deluged with others inquiring, but I want you to know our thoughts are with you, your family, and your brother. I do not know the circumstances but that is not necessary. Love, strength, rest, and hope to you, your brother, and family.

    Love,
    GeL
