Hey guys i started a poem that i want you guys to keep running, just add stanzas with your favorite little things and we might get a really cool poem here


What is life but endless nights
slow days, Monets, and Christmas lights
days when the phone rings and rings
what is life but little things?

Sneakers baring tiny toes
loud clocks, warm socks, and present bows...
Broken balsa airplane wings
what is life but little things?

paper cuts, and broken pinkies,
dress ups, mess ups, tangled slinkies...
The song a perfect stranger sings
what is life but little things?

Late night movies, black and white
winks, ice rinks, clown night lights…
not knowing what tomorrow brings
What is life but little things.

Rumpled bedsheets, children's hugs,
husband looking "Santa-smug",
crisp winter nights and roaring fire,
taking the telephone off the wire...

Knowing love, loving to know
just what makes our love grow
and when you feel it's right to sing,
then you know life is but little things...

Ice cream cones and chocolate faces
Dog's stolen things from far off places
Little girls in make believe
Crystal snowflakes on your sleeve
Birhday baloons and pirate ships
Double dutch and potatoe chips
Cardinal in a holly tree
Kevin's lovely poetry

Pictures hanging on the wall.
Mother painted most, or all.
Christmas cards upon my desk.
Those I really love the best.

Photo albumn on a shelf.
Took the pictures all myself
Tears and memories that it brings.
Life is full of little things.

Graceful swan gliding through water
reflecting all her beauty
man rests upon her silken wing
where he is free from duty

The picture paints a maiden too
that can't get passed the swan
eyes meet eyes and trust is given
creating life's oldest phenomenon

------------------
Yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream...

Castles in a cardboard box
spring rains, car lanes, and chicken pox
Under the table queens and kings
what is life but little things

Paper hats and tree branch swords
closed eyes, french fries, and ouiji boards
Young love complete with frienship rings
what is life but little things

Colored lights on Christmas trees
A feather blowing in the breeze
Sunday morning churchbell rings
What is life but little things

Sunlight hitting crested snow
Peanut butter with marshmallow
First night that the tree frog sings
What is life but little things

Lovers kissing in the dark
Footsteps running in the park
Licking dog to wash my face
Katherine Hepburn's charm and grace

Goosebumps when I see the flag
Playing hide and seek and tag
Hostess Twinkies...Dingalings
Life is filled with little things.

A school girl crush,
A teddy bear, oh so plush!
Some giggles here and there,
A quick game of truth or dare.
A set of beautiful butterfly wings,
What is life but simple things?

Night owl's wondrous hooty hoots
Snowy crunches under boots
The smell of cookies being baked
Candles on a birthday cake

Animal crackers, baseball bats
Jack o lanterns, welcome mats
Pigtails donned with yellow bows
Lightening bugs and puppet shows
A Romantic Heart

Hugs and kisses,
Special entree dishes,
Dreams and wishes,
Swinging in a tree swing,
What is life but little things?

Love and laughter,
Happy ever after,
Healthy and can't complain,
What is life but little things?

Clean air to breathe, food to eat,
Having socks to warm my feet,
Having sight to see everything,
What is life but little things?

Homemade gifts and cards,
Owning a house with a yard,
Hot dogs and baseball games,
What is life but little things?

Friends and family,
I have plenty,
What joy, that they bring,
What is life but little things?

Eighty points on every ride-
A little less of cowboy pride..
Chris Ledoux, with "John Ed sings.."
A cowboy's view of little things.

To somehow lose just twenty years
Make old "arthir" disappear
to my steps just add some spring-
Youth is such a little thing

Late night talks with a best friend
A broken heart on the mend
Driving someone else's car
A fun night out with no doubts
About what is expected

Snuggling by the warm fire
With the one your heart desires
Seeing a smile light up a childs face
And realizing the gift of grace

------------------
Time flies? Say it not so, time stays we go.

Fancy cars, and limosines
Country cooking and french cousine!
Star lit nights, in reflected eyes.
Love that soars the open skies.

These are but a few to name.
Of life's little things that make are day.
And bring us happiness as they come,
And happier yet when shared with someone...

Spider webs with morning dew
