Write a rhyming tribute and include a link to this post, and then stop back by to link up, comment and visit everyone's odes.


[My "Ode to The Way Things Were"]

This is an ode to the good old days
An ode to commemorate the way
Things were back then. Back when things were good,
And there was plenty - back in the day.

Good times sometimes seem so far away
So what I would like to know is how
To get things back the way they were
Before they were the way that things are now

And yet I wonder, in years to come
Will we be wanting to know the way
To change the things that happen then, to
Get them back the way things are - today?


  1. What a wonderful ode! It's so true - we can waste our time wishing for the past, but in the future, will we wish we'd been more present in the NOW?

  2. Loved the poems, again! Very creative. Alas, I had no time to participate...maybe next time : ).

    I was going to write an ode to my vintage tablecloth, but time slipped away.


What do you have to say about that?
