The Sweet & Simple Things

Lady with a string of pearls, her daughter w/golden curls

Sitting around, talking about their day

Having chocolate milk, and marshmallow cookies

by their fireplace

They love the sweet and simple things

Father/Son Fun

My six year old son & I are playing around with rhymes

the ones we’re putting together are so simple sometimes

Mouse, house,cat, hat, stuff like that,

nothing fancy, but that’s alright,

I just love having fun together while I write

I know that his childhood will go by fast

In the blink of an eye, a flash,

but in the here & now, we’re having a blast

By: J.N.R Dutton, in collaboration my son Eli

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New Poem

I remember growing up listening to

“Jack & Diane”, “Rain On The Scarecrow”,

“Desperado” and “Simple Man”

There are so many other songs

in the soundtrack of my life

They’ll stick with me, surely,

Until the day I die

& when my time is over

& I’ve got no more seasons in the sun

I’ll leave a mutual love of music etched

In the heart of my son
