Poems


I don't know if these rhymes qualify as poetry or not. Are you familiar with them?  I used to know what day of the week each of my 5 children were born on but have now forgotten. It seems my brain can only hold so and so much and useless knowledge is the first to go.

I used to read poems to my children and grandchildren too. I was fortunate in that I had the care of the first three grands 5 days a week while their moms worked and the last two grands live right here in the same house.  So although I don't think I read them these sayings, I did read many others to them.

I gather these illustrations were part of an ad for thread.






I looked it up and I was born on a Wednesday. Whew!  Sure glad I wasn't born on Thursday.

  3. Hi! I don't remember ever seeing those until I was older. I don't remember seeing the little sayings on the bottom either. Is it on the birth certificate? I am curious to know what day I was born on. Is that on your birth certificate or how did you look it up? Nancy

    1. I just googled "what day of the week was..the date of your birth..?" and it gave me the entire calendar month for that year.

  4. I WAS born on a Thursday! Ha! I don't FEEL sour and sad. Smile.
    Maybe this is why I like to sew (Clark's - trying to make me glad!)

    1. Just goes to show how wrong they can be!! You probably were born just before midnight and were really supposed to be a Friday's child.

  5. Oh I love the old poem and especially Mother Goose rhymes. I read them to my girls when they were small. I don't know which day I was borne. Guess I'll have to find out and come back. :)
