Life is like a bowl of cherries


We are enjoying the wonderful summer fruits that are in abundance in the markets.
The delicious ripe cherries, are my favourite and I can't seem to get enough of them.
Every morning when I set out for my early morning walk - I take a handful of these and eat my way around the block.

Life is just a bowl of cherries
Don't make it serious
Life's too mysterious
You work, you save, you worry so
But you can't take your dough
when you go, go, go.
So keep repeating it's the berries
The strongest oak must fall
The sweet things in life
To you were just loaned.
So how can you lose what 
you've never owned?
Life is just a bowl of cherries
so live, laugh at it all.

Lyrics of a Song ~ Jack Hylton ~ 1931

Wish you all a wonderful week
hugs
Carolyn

    Haha, I'm sitting here with pitted fresh cherries and 0% Greek yogurt. Thanks for the poem to finish it off as soul food too. Well worded and so true.

  20. Oh Carolyn,

    DO NOT EVEN get me started on a bowl of cherries or else I too cannot stop!

    I love them even now, FROZEN, in my vanilla ice cream! What is it about these little rubies that we cannot get enough of?

    ENJOY ALL YOU CAN! They are so good for our health too! Anita
