It’s In The Mail


When I, see a mail truck,

I often wonder, what’s within,

a letter, from a loved one,

or, to the next of kin.

And, what reaction it will  cause,

maybe joy, or maybe sorrow,

perhaps a bill, will be inside,

for payment, of what we borrowed.

Or, could it be a package,

with something, seen only on TV,

the handling, and the shipping of,

costs more, than what it be?

But, it may be, a letter,

from a soldier, or sailor far away,

sending love, and wishes,

for a fine, and peaceful day.

But, please read my blog and buy stamps.

It’s good for my morale, and speaking of which, if you know someone in the military, regardless of where they are stationed, or a family friend knows someone who knows someone. Write and just say hi, a letter from the neighborhood, is a letter from America, and America is home.  44 cents goes a long way. 

 God Bless our troops.

Thanks, Jack
