Her Name’s “Marcia June”

By Martyn Ballestero



She always wraps us up,

In the comfort of her home.

With smiles that hold our soul,

And won’t let it feel alone.


Nothing ever can compare

To her plates of comfort food.

Every heart and tummy knows,

With her cooking, it was wooed.


We are drawn into her den

Of coziness and rest.

There she warms our hearts with words,

It’s good living at it’s best.


Her couch and Queen Anne chairs

Soothe her guest’s attention spans.

Pretty pillows great and small,

Compliment the old Afghans


The fireplace is her love,

It’s warmed her heart the most.

There she likes to entertain,

She loves to be the host.


With calm and peaceful ways

She serves and pampers us.

Ever giving of herself

Without the muss or fuss.


She holds court upon her porch,

Where she reigns with cups of tea.

Making memories for life,

With folks like you and me.

Her husband beams with pride

Knowing she is just the best.

All her children quickly say,

Because of her, they’re blest.


Her front door stands open wide,

So friends can just drop by,

Just to get their daily dose.

That she’s loved, is not a lie.


Little children laugh and play

Glad to be at home with her.

With her gentle and calm voice,

She’s the one who they prefer.


All that know her love her dear.

(She can sing the sweetest tune.)

It’s with joy I tell you now,

Her name’s Marcia June!

  3. Her Mother and I have been here this week
    Enjoying HER porch and good things to eat
    A comfortable bed and soft pillows at night
    Gives one a great homey feeling and delight
    Tomorrow is Mothers Day and don’t you know
    A Blog from her Husband like a river that flows
    Cards, Flowers and Gifts from her Children and friends
    She is worthy of all that we say or do
    So, Marcia, …….. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! to YOU.
