A Country Known as Yesterday
 
A Country known as Yesterday is an enormous land
And everyday it grows some more. That’s why it is so grand
You’ll find within its borders all of history’s great events,
The empires of antiquity, their rise and their descent
But small events are there as well, along with great migrations
Like holidays and 3rd grade plays and family vacations
 
The landscape is intriguing in the land of Yesterday
Signposts marking eras are the pointers on the way
To the Neolithic Stone Age and the dynasties of China
To the kingdoms of the pharaohs and the culture of the Mayans.
 
At first, the air is bright and clear when first you venture in.
But as you skim across the years, then things begin to dim
The sky turns grey, the fog arrives, and everything is misty
But still the curious travel there, for clues to ancient mysteries.
Searching for lost continents and a city called Atlantis.
Or tracking down the “thunder lizard” called Apatosaurus.
 
Yes, Yesterday’s a country that you’ll surely want to see
You can visit any time you’d like, and travel there for free
Your passport can be anything that tells about the past
A history book, a story or a faded photograph
 
And even though this Country can’t be found on any map
You can find your way quite easily to Yesterday and back
And maybe if you’re lucky, you’ll return with souvenirs
With memories -- the legacy of all our bygone years.

How wonderfully innocent in a land we wish to believe in that really does not exist, yet it does.....

Be always safe,

A charming poem, inviting all kinds of possibilities for exploring that special country. These computers we call brains have amazing capacity for storing those memories.
I like the range of memories you include, from the great to the small.

Master Stinky Dances by P. G. Shriver

Master Stinky is hungry, but he smells bad. He's a stranger, too! Should the kittens share with a stranger? They don't think so. The kittens soon learn that M..
