Having a Fling--By Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson--Canary Islands

Having a Fling

At the end of day when stars shine
Up in the sky with moon aglow
Love inside me truly does flow

I thank the Lord for all what’s mine
Here on this earth where I abide
Knowing He’s the eternal guide

For loving family divine
With hearts showing warmth never cold
For both the youngest and the old

That is so happy to entwine
To face if need be mountain climb
Altogether at any time

On occasions to make life fine
We laugh and party, dance and sing
Letting hair down to have a fling!

Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson is a coal miner’s daughter, the only girl among 6 lads. A young mother to a son, she became a widow before she turned 18.  Patricia, then, married her childhood sweetheart who fathered her lovely son and two wonderful daughters.  Her children encouraged her to pursue her own talents.  After 51 years of marriage, she became a widow again recently.  She fills her time with poetry, helping others whenever she can.
