Two New Poems...

   BY Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart

Another Smile is gone
I lost a four-pawed friend you see
Goodbye Sage, you dear old girl
No more will you pass by my door.

And though I know you are now free of pain
I will miss your joyful wagging tail
Whenever you greeted me without fail
With your joyful canine heart.

Sage was a neighbor's aging Cocker Spaniel.  She was beautiful and so sweet.

           by Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart

So here I am alone again
But remembering when
We two enjoyed watching, 
"Dancing with the Stars"
And picking out our choice to win.

And when the season came to a close
What would we watch now?
We always wanted to know
Even though we knew it would be re-runs.

It  sure is lonely without you Bill.  
People say It will get better
But I know it never will.
I miss everything about you, 
Every moment shared when we were two.

There is a hole in my heart
That none but God can fill
Now that you are gone, 
My wonderful Bill....

The sign over the shed Door that I drew and Bill cut out with the scroll saw.

All is silent now.  No saw is humming that happy tune, the sound of creating.
