Hallowe'en cards - I wrote some poems

As many know, we have two granddaughters, 4 & 6 years old. Grampa, the sweet
One of my fave photos!
man he is, bought them some Hallowe'en cards. They have a mail box on their outdoor playhouse, a gift from neighbours who had outgrown it. We like to send mail to pop in.
We don't know how long we will have door-to-door mail service, and we must embrace it while we can! Keep it in our memories our Canadian history: rain, snow, sleet or hail!
I used the poetry style: AABA, BBCB, etc. I forget what it is called! It's a good little mental workout.

Josephine
It's Hallowe'en
Foam play, selfie!
The funniest girl
We've ever seen

You are a pearl
You tilt and whirl
Never undone
Blonde hair: curl


You've been much fun
Since I've begun
Your big, sweet smile
You're our loved one

We'd run a mile
And jump a stile
You have no fear
On land or isle

Your sister dear
Bug cake!
We shed a tear
Says you are fun
But that is clear!

Isabelle

Tough as nails
You tell some tales
If you fall
There are no wails

You are a doll
On grass we sprawl
To talk of bugs
Both big and small

You give great hugs
Expression: mugs
Your face is sweet
Heart strings tugs


You are quite neat
Not so discreet
"It's a mess"
You do not cheat!

You do us bless
I must confess
When you come visit
Much love: profess.

Lovely mail, in their own special letter box, and a super poem style, the first time I have heard of AAbA,BBcB and so on, you are so loving, and very thoughtful to give the girls this treat. Hugs to you both, Jean,

I bet they'll remember the mail and poems for a long time to come. Hate to see home delivery go. - Margy

Lucky girls -- they will remember their special mail forever! (And, probably, remember and tell their kids about how they used to actually GET paper mail delivered.) Times change.

You are a woman of many talents!
