Latest in poetry: Bits and pieces

By Ann Clinton

Walking on a sandy beach eating a peach ice cream cone

Enjoying sunny days, blue skies and warm breezes

Listening to birds chirping as they go about morning chores

Watching children riding on the swings in the park

Reading a good book by sunlight

Having a great conversation with a good friend

Waiting with presents ready for the holiday season to begin

Spending an afternoon walking through an art museum

Dining with family at a fine restaurant

Riding the Staten Island ferry for an adventure in the city

Baking chocolate chip cookies

Relaxing in an easy chair watching a good TV program

Sitting in a warm home as snowflakes cover the ground

Trying on an old dress and finding it still fits

Visiting with grandchildren and listening to their hopes and plans

Sharing special events with family and friends

Planning a special vacation
