A Cooks Wish

Praise me if you wish

For yesterdays dish

The meal you did not finish

The sauce your spoon would not tarnish

The dinner you did not touch when it was fresh

After they are gallows led?

Men’s true measure((Ben Jonson)/Translation in Amharic/Alem/የሰው ትክክለኛ መስፈርት

In small proportions we just beauties see
And in short measures life may perfect be.//

To hold it up and hear it sing?

 

But recognize its fading glow,

The moment one's excitement peaks,

Then turn around and let it...

Do all Dogs

go to Heaven?

I sure hope

It's true.

Cause when I

get to Heaven

I want to be

there with you.

 

You are gone

now but

for a

short while.

When I see

you again

I'll have a

big smile.

 

I'll sit upon

the ground

while you run

that crazy little circle.
