Oh, Silly Me






………………………………Oh, Silly Me

………………………………From my most comfortable chair, I fuss with
………………………………my living room, the art, a chair, the rug…
………………………………in my head…in my dreams, until I find
………………………………myself moving pictures hither and yon

………………………………in the sunshine of this quiet day. Oh,
………………………………Silly me. Liking it the way it is
………………………………does not preclude me from fussing with it,
………………………………taking art from here and adding color

………………………………there, stirring the whole house round till finding
………………………………just the right thing for just another spot
………………………………leaves me feeling at ease, cosseted, till,
………………………………I notice those new towels brought home for

………………………………the upstairs bathroom, that dark blue plate bought
………………………………for the kitchen. I laugh, Oh, silly me.

  6. Neat poem! I, too, fuss with my garden, what I'm going to cook, re-arranging furniture -- all from my comfy chair!
