AH - to be stroked - so Tenderly!

Remember the song lyrics -

"The evening breeze
caresses the Trees,
so Tenderly..."

Was it Nat "King" Cole?

Now the mood is set ... read on, Mac Duff!






Tender

© 05-08-08 - Tom Hyland


Soft - Caressible - Soothing -
He, She, It May Be -
A Joy to Touch -
For You and for Me.


Somewhat Smooth -
Not Unlike Skin -
With Age - Wrinkled -
Often Thin.


Could be a Baby’s Butt -
Or a Lass’s Cheek -
Or maybe a Coal Car -
Of which I Speak?


Yes, All of These -
May Be Quite True -
But What About Eleemosynary -
Do You Yet Have a Clue?


Most Everyone Touches -
Most Every Day -
And The Lottery Brags -
To Win You Must Play!


Is There Another -
Which All Take for Granted?
Waylaid - Forlorn - Spent -
And Yet Undaunted?


Can You Sniff It Out -
Act Like a Beagle?
Track It Down -
‘Tis Also Quite Legal!


The Reverse of The Obverse -
‘Twould Be - The Front -
Thereon Boldly Emblazoned -
Ends Our Brief Hunt!


Tender Is - As Tender Does -
Be Quick - Like a Bunny -
Run, Take a Look -
At Your Paper Money!



“THIS NOTE IS LEGAL TENDER
FOR ALL DEBTS,
PUBLIC AND PRIVATE”



Please, Oh Please -
RENDER ME TENDER!

When I think of tender I don't think of money, but the crossing on a tender to that island other side of Bermuda crossed by tender to , oh well I forget, now I remember Hamilton. Went there with Tom 2nd day in Bermuda, paid absorbitant price for a cheeseburger, said Tom, we have to eat our pre paid meals at the Hotel which was the Belmont, now torn down and destroyed a good landmark that was and Tom's Father stayed there many a time when he traveled. to Bermuda. Tom's Father was an osteopathic physician and loved Bermuda so Tom had to take me there once in my lifetime to show me too. lOved Bermuda, Amen to that. Sorry for going astray, started with Tender and ended with thoughts about Tom's father. Oh, well, I get distracted easily as you do in some of your writes and write what comes to mind too. That is life, isn't it? Thanks

From Ine Master to Render Me Tender!!



And your lines:

Can You Sniff It Out -

Act Like a Beagle?



Just reminded me of a hilarious (to me, anyway) episode from my youth when our determined dog sniffed out all the money my Dad was hiding under the carpet, and ate it!
