Drop me a line!

I don't pretend to be a Keats
or a Shelley or a Shakespeare—rhymes
just pop into my head sometimes, and
I scribble them down on whatever
piece of paper comes to hand. 
It's fun and it's just for me, but now and
then, people ask to read what
I have written.

I'm always happy to hear from readers, too!
I have had a lot of nice compliments,
and if the above "drop me a line" link
doesn't work in your browser, you can e-mail
me at my clonc gmail address, which is marydavgl20 with the AT symbol and then gmail.com. I would love to hear from you...


(With apologies to Pam Ayres)

I would like to have a mouthful of dazzling white teeth.
People would step back in amazement,overcome by their perfection.

I would smile all the time,just to show them off.
People would say, isn't she a happy soul?

I would be able to eat the toughest steak or bite into a green, crisp apple.

If I couldn't find the scissors after sewing on a button, I would cut off the thread with a quick snip of my molars.

After suffering hours in the dentist’s chair, being x-rayed, drilled, prodded, drains sucking up a dribbling mouth, it will be heavenly.

No more abscesses, antibiotics, sensitive teeth, just my shiny new molars.

What if we did have to spend the night apart, me in my bed, and my molars in a glass of water with a Steradent tablet?

After all, we will be reunited in the morning, minty fresh.

What if my gums do shrink and my molars start to slip, there is always a fixative.

Best of all, if my teeth needed mending, they would be sent off to be repaired whilst I laid low, but free from pain, sucking my food and smiling a wide, toothless smile. 

Happy, so happy!
