The Tin Foil Star

The Fir tree was the cheapest in the lot. A day later it had a foil star on top. Now as they sat in a home so humble. The star could hear some tummies rumble. A small girl admired the star she made. And made a wish for better days. Her Parents sighed as they put her in bed. Christmas should not be a time to dread. On the tree the star seemed to gleam. Sending out a shiny light beam. Outside the home a Bear trudged through the snow. Through a frosty window keen eyes caught a glow. Outside the window curious eyes peered in. To ignore this home would be a sin. So a strange little Bear made it her mission. To give someone's Christmas what it was missing. She gathered up others of her kind. They all felt sad as they heard of her find. So they set about finding what others had thrown. Including canned goods with contents unknown. They found unwanted toys which needed a home. Also a Teddy who had to be sewn. A pair of mittens they hoped would do. After receiving just a stitch or

                         Bright in the Dark The cave was dark, good for hiding tears But could not mask sounds to a Piggy’s ears. A forlorn Raccoon sat sniffling inside Not wanting others to know he had cried. For Bright Heart it was a terrible day One in which nothing had gone his way. A smart male with wounded pride. He had good reasons to want to hide. A Care Cousin Pig slowly made her way Never intending to save the day. She crept up to the boy ’Coon inside. And put her hip up to his side. Not a word was said as hoof sought paw Then wounded pride was healed by awe Whispered words banished the day’s events

                       Prom Slight              Our Senior Year had finally arrived.              So many school days we had survived.              But I had dated out of our Class.              How dearly I paid for loving a girl with sass.              I thought I had found my True Lover.              But then she dumped me for another.              She should have been my Belle of the Ball.              With Prom approaching I had no date at all.               So I waded back into the dating pool.               Never dreaming girls would play me for the fool.               Two girls said they would find me a date.

The Care Bear Lament

      The Care Bear Lament The Stars have come, the Sun has run The Care Bear world is missing One Your Soul has now strayed afar Into the arms of Mother Star. We have lost a Kindred Bear A pain in which we all must share Many tears will hit the ground As the Wishing Star shines down. Lives are not permanent We must join the Firmament Bodies are not ours to keep They turn to dust as others weep. The Master of All has made the call Death will visit one and all Yet our Souls will carry on Into the great Realm beyond. Yes the Stars will light the way When we greet our dying day Our death we shall not fear Knowing God is always near.

Sailors we were, and Sailors we be The Indy was once Home to you and me. She took us to the far ends of The Earth Time and again she proved her worth. In times of Peace and times of War Within her hull we felt secure. Snug in our racks she rocked us to sleep She kept us safe on the oceans deep.

My Bio
I was taggertro until my account got hacked. You can find some of my previous works here at DA under that penname. I also have some Fan fiction stories published. So please check out my stories at fanfiction.net .
The two most popular are "Understanding Grumpy" and "Good Luck's Wish". My last two Poems involved Ships. I spent four years in The U.S. Navy, aboard the Carrier U.S.S. Independence. When I heard she is slated to be scrapped I wrote "Goodbye Steel Friend".

I am a Personal Service Specialist working part time. I thought I had been hired for a full time Job, then they just did not complete the hiring process. I don't know why and can't get an answer from them!
Sorry if my picture scares you. That is the latest one of me taken in 2013. I am dyslexic so if you spot mistakes in my writings just blame my scrambled Brain. My Spell Checker doesn't always catch mistakes.
The upside is I can read things that are upside down and backwards.

Thank You to all who take time to read this and any of my Stories or Poems. Right now I can't afford my own Internet Access so I have to borrow my Parent's Computer when I visit them. Still I will keep on trying to write. Thank you to all who have read any of my Works.

At the time of this entry Corona Virus (Covid19) is sweeping the World in a pandemic. I hope every one who sees this does fine. Take care of yourself and help others if you can.

Today is Christmas 2019. To those who celebrate it I hope the day is one you will remember fondly. Thanks to all who have read my writings, made comments, or added my stuff to your favorites. Of all the Gifts I may receive today none will be as special as the support I received during my bout with Cancer.

Been having trouble getting on this site. After a computer update I am back! I have been feeling better since ending Radiation treatments. Hope you all had a great Halloween 2019!

 Thank you OopsyBearOS for your nice depiction of my Custom Care Bear, Miracle Joy. For those who may have missed it, it is listed as: Izzabelle and Canopy?    Miracle Joy Bear alias Clarissa Merryway. Shipped with Crosshairs, who is one of OopsyBearOS's Custom characters. OopsyBearOS's future view of Miracle Joy makes perfect sense. I am one of those who believe self driving vehicles could one day pose a threat. They certainly will affect future Battle Fields.
Oh, by the way, Crosshairs is a Transformer character from Transformers: Age of Extinction and Transformers: The Last Knight, though i alter some bits up to differentiate from the films' timeline, making him a different character. Though you might wanna know a bit.
