“Whelpy” is surely not a word
Retrieve your tiles.
It’s such a stretch that it’s absurd
But brings me smiles.
So Scrabble’s not always your game
Bridge is a flop.
Tennis and golf, about the same.
We’ll have to stop.
Walking together in the woods
Visits with friends.
Cooking with gas, sharing our goods
Our fun ne’er ends.
Happy Day After….
