Amy made me do it again, ...


Relish the nights,
Relish the days.
Relish heaped on hotdogs,
In the good old ways.

It's nothing but pickles,
Chopped to a sauce.
But lounging on a hot dog,
Itís the coup de gras.

Relish the good times,
Relish the days.
When life was much younger,
In sweet, simple ways.

A ballpark, picnic, or county fair,
Relish the smells that filled the air.
When friends dropped in,
As you gathered your kin.

Relish the day,
Relish the night.
Relish your loved ones,
Hold them tight.

For if you do not relish them,
And pack them just right,
They may spoil on you.
And disappear from sight.

Like the relish on a well-eaten dog.

Loved the play on the word relish. My favorite addition to hotdogs and hamburgers.

upon opening the "new poem" site I was immediately overjoyed just knowing you did in fact right the poem.. and then claiming I "made you do it again' oh I was really smiling then haha

You did a wonderful wonderful job with this one.. it was much enjoyed and you hit on a few personal thoughts as well which made all the merrier for me...

of course, I don't like relish on my dog but in a sandwhich maybe.. depends though

Ahhhh, Ron.. this is one of the most delightful, playful, sweet poems anywhere! You've 'smothered' some important commentary with an infectious rhyme.. my toes were taping.. my face is grinning. Truly cool! katy.
