He’s a Good Egg – for d’Verse Poets

That means he’s not rotten,

a good sign if you want

to hire him or wed him.

Go for it, for good eggs

are hard to break….

Aren’t they?

Good eggs are hard to find

these daze. Bless their

mothers, who worked

their miracle.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.

    I like the link between ‘good eggs are hard to break / hard to find / and the mothers working miracles.

    Love the use of the word “daze” here….and most especially this line which made me smile
    “Bless their
    mothers, who worked
    their miracle.”

    Good point about mothers working their miracles to get those good eggs.


  7. Mish says:

    A nice tribute to the “good eggs” out there. Mothers (and fathers) have much to do with it.


  8. Good eggs are getting harder to find in this crazy world, Nan! Don’t I wish I’d meet one…
