My Hatby aged
Got stolen by a rat.
Then my hat
Flew off to a cat.
The cat could not hold it
So where did it go?
on a mat.
Make a Change…by aged
A small change can make a difference
It’s never too late to change your preference.
Encourage more plantation.
Plant more trees
Or suffer the extinction of bees.
Make our seas free of litter
The Dark Forestby aged
The forest was dark,
The forest was grey,
The forest held paths that would lead you astray,
Those who entered never came out,
Go near and you would hear the screams and shouts.
Mini Eggsby aged
Mini eggs are funny
and sometimes even very dotty
Mini eggs are scrummy
Mini eggs are sometimes very, very yummy.
Finally Together!by aged
We spent so much of our time at home,
Sometimes it was boring, we felt all alone.
We woke up in the morning and exercised with Joe,
We did it with our family, but they were slow.

but that was all going to change.
It’s amazing how one thing can mean so many things
from deep, meaningful love
to tyrannous hate and broken hearts,
from safe healing and sacrifice

from bright roses that
There is no definition for paradise
no rights and wrongs
and no boundaries that are restricting you
For some it might be a peaceful life on the beach
with a fresh summer breeze and the sound
True Joyby aged
We looked at the landscape before us,
A blanket of golden flowers,
Surrounded by mountains like the walls of a house,
The cotton wool clouds, atop the snowy peaks.
We look at each other,
The Forestby aged
On lightest day, through darkest night,
The forest is large and glorious.
When trees shall fall, feel my might,
I will be great and victorious!
With emerald eyes, when very pure,
Do I Really Care?by aged
Nature is beautiful
And I will never believe that
Earth is a wasteland
It is clear
That there are endangered animals on this Earth
Why should I care
For hunters that
