Donna's Poems
All Around the Mulberry Bush

Just a shy girl was I,
When Dad talked to me
Stay out of the "world."
Go to God's meetin' house,
Keep your values high.

Dad didn't know the Bible folks.
Guess he was a gentle soul,
More innocent than I,
Free of wicked avarice,
So on I went, "Oka dokes."

Well, it was this and that,
Where's yer Ma and Pa?
Wuz  yah hereah last Sundy?
Behind me. "She's a wantin a man."
Through it all I learned and sat.

Time went on as it does.
Tried my best with my children
I knew the slights they took,
Just as half of this and that,
They my life, my loves.

Through it all my Great God,
Held my hand
Made my life free
Comfort between us two
Taught me  his name to lawd.

Now I go quite alone,
"Where's yer  husband?"
"Wuz yah heraah last Sundy?"
Behind me, "She's a wantin' a man!"
Don't matter, I got it all, even the bone.
