Looking For a Hug


I looked for a hug,

From a silly old bug.

But his arms were too short,

For that kind of sport.


So I asked then a deer,

Who did magically appear.

When he shook his big head,

I looked around me instead.


There were trees all around,

Whose branches were sound.

But not gentle their touch,

That I wanted so much.


So my journey moved on,

Til I next saw a swan.

Her wings were so wide,

But to me she did chide.


Look to your own,

She said with a groan.

You will find what you need,

My words you must heed.


So I nodded goodbye,

As she flew to the sky.

Now my heartstrings do tug,

As I ask you for a hug.




Ok, maybe not yet,

But soon, I will bet!

    Love this Pam. Don’t ever lose your whimsy! Sending you hugs to keep you well, keep you safe, keep you close by. ((())) ((())) ((())) ((()))

    Now you should be as snug as a bug in a rug!

    The one thing we are missing quite strongly is that human connection during this event. It was ‘just’ a hug, but now we know it means so much more πŸ˜€
    Great post Pam, and I do miss my swans from here, they seem to have all run away for our winter. It is the one bird that hasn’t come back πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

    I needed some poetry after the quote unquote news last night. And this is good poetry. What ever you do don’t shop where Dan shops. The customers there are meaner than evil step mothers. I am surprised they let him in the store let alone bring beer home. So has the sturgeon general raised the recommended daily limit on hugs ? Sending more.
