The Front Porch Goose (Short Story) - 5/17/2008 2:26:08 PM|
I reviewed it and got as far as the wrought Iron Lion. That boy surely was overteased by those two boys. I know about those goose's or geese you put on front porch and dress up. Always wanted to own one. Can buy them in Ohio, saw lots when up to Church Retreat. ANyway, it came alive and scared the boys away for a time. They came back and still waved bats and teased him. They did damage to the goose, and that was bad for the boys. He should of told his Mother, Instead he did not, keeping the fact the boys tease him to himself is hurtful. Anyway the good luck amulet was a lucky charm once for him. And when he brought that iron lion, that should scare the boys away, cause they are fierce looking and they should soon learn he has a lucky charm piece to ward them off and they aren;t going to win out in the end. Big bullies end of off to jail or being caught out in the end.

Yes, very well written! It remins me of these Psalms:
For you created my inmost being; you
knit me together in my mother's womb. I
praise you because I am fearfully and
wonderfully made your works are wonderful.
All the days ordained for me were written in
your book before one of them came to be.
( Psalms 139:13,14 & 16 )

Interesting write Steven. Reminds me of Mark 10:42-44. Kings are tyrants and officials lord it over those beneath them. But in my kingdom, (Jesus) he who wants to be a leader must first understand the importance of being a servant. My paraphrase of these verses! Enjoyed the poem! Blessings...Frances

You know in the town I was born in (Newfoundland) the front pew was actually reserved for the only wealthy family in the parish. Enjoyed your poem. Very nicely done.

My imagination went to work immediately formulating ideas that something had come to an end in a hasty decision--like a bad relationship or marriage. With all endings there is a new beginning. Will there be a follow-up poem to show where that 62 Chevy went?

Great write, meaning where is that car going and who is in it? Questions galore for this one.
