"Yellow Umbrella"


Have you ever seen a yellow umbrella fly?
Yes! When the wind blew it clear to the sky!
While watching it float away in the clouds so high.
I hugged my daisies and closed my eyes.
And waved and whispered, "Umbrella, good-bye."

I loved it Gigi Ann! Thanks for opening this up and letting me read it. It was wonderful and brought back some awesome childhood memories of me playing in the grass in the fields near my home in South Texas.
Hope to be reading more of you. Be blessed.
