Long winters sure can get you down;
Through cold and snowy days we've trod.
Let's spring some life into this town;
It's Hoot'n'Nani on Cape Cod!

We'll come from places far and near;
The fun we'll have is worth the trip.
We'll need some moderation here,
So let's just borrow some from PiP.

Mysteria's the first to show…
Air Canada won't be the same.
They said, "Get off this plane and go..!"
Hysteria's her middle name!

Her luggage filled the cargo hold;
The pilot shook his head in awe.
He thought, "Sure hope this plane upholds!
Let's get this lady to Cape Cod…"

She settled in and went to bed;
I thought we'd get an early start.
"The morning's not my thing," she said
For I'm a city girl, at heart…"

But with the early morning sun
I found her outdoors hustling
Just like the Energizer Bun..
Out picking clams and musseling.




New England's coast ours to explore
As far north as "Downeastern Maine"
Where Nubble lighthouse beams offshore
O'er rocky shoals and sandy grain.



In Salem Village, which is witch?
Mysteria showed them some flare,
But nary one made slightest twitch.
Then off to Boston's Harvard Square.




"I like this place," she said to me,
"For I'm a city girl at heart…"
I took her on a shopping spree
She filled her bags and shopping cart.

She had to go in all the stores
And left their shelves fully bereft
The clerks were locking all the doors.
They said, "Go home - We've nothing left!"

Liz Santos said, "Send her to me;
We'll make a bumpkin of her yet!"
So off she went Hysterically
Back to the airport - ENTER KIT…

Hahaha, sounds like you all are having a blast! I'd love to see New England someday and I'll refer back to this poem as an informal sort of travel guide. Have fun the rest of your vacation!

Nan darling girl this is seriously excellent writing, the flow of this is perfect, the internal pace and the construction cannot be bettered. as always you delight when you write, and when you write in this style you excel. Beautifully portrayed view of Cape Cod. Absolutely excellent, it looks like you’re having a fabulous time and this is just precious. Wonderful


Love and warm stuff
As always

( to the tune of "Off to see the Wizard" )
.
.

We're off to see the hoot owl,
Mysteria, Nancy and Kit
And Santos, too
Oh boy! Yoo-hoo!
It's givin' my hormones a fit!

It's giving my hormones a fit, you see
The beauty that's there for Sy and me
Because, because,
because, because
BECAUSE....
No one parties like Nancy does!

We're off to see the hoot owl,
Mysteria, Nancy and Kit!

We're off to see the ladies
That Passionate poets adore!
It makes no diff
I'll wake up stiff
From sleeping on Nancy's floor!

Fran understands
Those are the plans
And she'll keep watch
On all my glands
Because, because
Because, because
BECAUSE
She knows those gals ain't got no flaws!

We're off to see the hoot owl,
Sharon, Liz, Nancy and Kit!!!!!

There are certain poets who post stuff that not only deserve a re-read for the poem itself, but just to see the responses...this be one of them!  Guess which tune I won't lose ALL day....

Well, Kit drew customs' random check;
She says that's frequently her fate.
Once home we suntanned on the deck,
We took a day to vegetate.

Mysteria returned with Liz,
Then hugs and gratitude abound.
One thing's for sure, that this place is
A family of friends around.

Mysteria showed us her loot
She's buying stuff at every bend...
Now Hoot'n'Nani needs a Hoot,
And SHE'll be here before day's end ...

Oh what fun you're all going to have. Keep us posted on the goings on, it sounds like such a blast. And keep an eye on those 'Deer and Sy hormones...surrounded by all you lovely women!! Have a great time all of you.

If she who dies with the most toys wins, then can I have some toy boys please?

I love this, Nan! *S* What a delightful way to share the fun with us... thank you for keeping us updated. *S*

So much poetic talent... and so many wonderful people... all in one place. *S* I won't be surprised if Cape Cod meteorologists start reporting a special glow. *S*

Deer, your response was magnificent... but did you HAVE to start me singing??? Pity my coworkers and their abused ears. LOL

Sharon comes to Pennsylvania

There she was at the station, no frills and no fuss
Stiff after sitting eight hours on a bus
Your agony, dear, I could never refute
But it's eight hours back on the very same route

WE finally got home , with her mind in a twirl
She, snapping pictures of rabbit and squirrel
Bunnies ahoppin and robins with strings
All of the very most interesting things

We went to a market in the Amish countryside
Sharon intrigued with the farmland and ride
From a car window snapping her pictures somehow
She said look at those Clydesdales pulling that plow!

I said those are work horses strong as can be
She said, well they are all quite the same thing to me

Sharon fit right in the Santos family
The children all loved her and hugged her with glee
Her presence to me was a gift from above
AS she comforted me with her heart full of love

Then up onto another bus both of us plod
With bags heavy laden to take to Cape Cod
An eight hour jouney with nothing to do
I wrote a short verse for whole pippin crew

And here it is

Before the twilight of this day
Some stars will shine upon a bay
And form a circle on the shore
Of friends who've never met before

It is a journey of the heart
That from afar some did depart
To join this circle that was formed
By poet souls who keep me warm

There is a common silver thread
In words we've written, words we've read
And now we get to meet the face
Of golden words behind the grace



Wish you could all be here
Hugs from Liz

Elizabeth...you made me cry!  Now how am I supposed to explain that to the rest of the staff?  Don't you all realize just what you have here, and how precious it is?  How wonderful the Internet has become in drawing true people together....

They said hurry up and add to this thread
Not one of them cared that I was half dead.
I’ve been to each store in old Cape Cod,
Clerks bow to me now not simply nod.



In Boston now I was in heaven
All the stores there were open ‘til seven.
Nan finally yelled, “Come on let’s go!”
She was off to the Cape, with me in tow.

In Pennsylvania the pace was slow
With buggies of Amish on the go.
I passed a field with farmer, plough and horse
I thought the horses were Clydesdales of course!
A horse is a horse, is a horse you see
To a city slicker such as me.

    

I was treated like family by Liz and her kin.
They fed me birthday cake and barbeque din-din.
She showed me the historical sties in her town,
As a tourist guide she is the best around.

    

    

Back to the Cape 8 hours on a bus
And they wondered why I made such a fuss?
Had I have known it was that far,
I’d rented me a driver and a fancy car!

Liz and I arrived to find Kit and Nan.
Hooray!  Just girls and not a single man.
Pizza was ordered and laughter was shared,
Off with the bras, as no one cared.

Another day of shopping, hip, hip, hooray!
Hoot Owl arrives, hey what a bonus day.
Four days of girl talk, no male bashers here.
Thursday brings Isabelle, Sy and Balladeer.

Hoot at Nan’s has been so much fun,
When the rest arrive the circle is done.
Friends together, courtesy of Ron Carnell,
So thank you Ron this trip’s been swell!
