Magic Words


We all need a little magic in our lives

lest life become dull and dreary

words to pull rabbits out of burrows

and put houdini’s hat trick to shame.


If you please me, you I’ll please

what a magical world it would be

if we bring genies out of their bottles

by remembering to say please.


If we are thankful for little things

we will be thankful just to be

to keep the magic in our lives

we only need to say thank you.


What a sorry state we will be in

if we are not sorry for wrongs done

to bring back the magic into our lives

we only need to say we are sorry.
