A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Seasons - 17 Apr 2006
By Mary T. Hoffman

This morning I wrote this little poem (a bit of curmudgeonly humor!). I hope you like it.

By Mary T. Hoffman

(Written the morning of 17 April 2006)

I welcomed Spring with open arms.
(We all admit she has her charms.)
But soon my welcome starts to wear
As once again I must take care,

For then reality sets in:
I must from ticks protect my skin,
And soon mosquitoes will be here
To buzz around, I fear. Oh, dear!

Summerís here before you know it.
Grass grows fast; we have to mow it.
Outdoor plants all thirst for water.
(I donít want to sound a martyr!)

Autumn seems so far away
When weíre hardly into May.
I dream of leaves all red and gold
As trees prepare to welcome cold.

Then Winterís chill
Becomes a thrill.
These are some reasons,
Of all the Seasons,

Winter is best
ĎCause I can rest!
