"Words are wonderful toys"

That quote is from my favorite scene in From Beyond The Grave:

I played with words and produced these love poems:

Count Charles "Vlad" Leslie

Love is Immortality

My granddad Vlad didn't die in July
When as a bat he flew into the sunny sky
He just crossed over to the other side
Where the majority of our family reside
I know I'll see them again, so I won't grieve
Especially on All Hallows' Eve.

Vive La Lolligag and Moot (I changed their names)

Milk and Honey

The bee girl appropriately named Honey,
Was a queen to Milk her pet bunny
They kept bees together,
Till Death came to get her
"Take me instead!" Milk pled
"I'll be back for you and your little friends too!" Death said.

That poem is based on the song The Beekeeper by Tori Amos:

Did you know bats are pollinators like bees?
Donate to my fundraiser for them here and you can win a treat!

This post is for October's Heart-Bits with Magaly ^♥^


  1. Hey! Loved this. Commented on G+ earlier. Will listen to Tori's song now. Speaking of milk and honey, I could use some for my cold. *sniffles and coughs*...been needing my special nurse Holly to help me heal. I'm doing ok though. Just takes time. Your lil poem you wrote made me think of Poppie <3 xoxo

  2. Love your choice of quotes, the personal wisdom you share in your poetry. And, of course, I love the learning. I had no idea bats were pollinators. How cool is that!

    Thank you so much for playing with my October's Heart-Bits.

  3. Milk and honey. Just what I needed for halloween to keep the ghouls away. Hope someday to meet your Grandad Vlad.

  4. h Holly I love your poems....both fun and holding so much love(as well as creepiness :D ) XXX
